Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 players have noticed a spike in the “disc read error 8.7” while attempting to play, especially in Zombies. It can be quite frustrating but there’s an easy solution. Here’s how to fix “disc read error 8.7” in MW3 Zombies.
What is “disc read error 8.7” in MW3 Zombies?
This error often occurs when there are corrupted or missing game files. It most often happens when you install Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 or after an update. It happens on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox, but it’s been most common on the latter.
Most recently, it seems like it’s related to a missing map in MW3 Zombies. When you delete Warzone, the map also deletes a map in Zombies. This causes the “disc read error 8.7” to appear.
Can you fix “disc read error 8.7” in Modern Warfare 3?
The solutions for this error are straightforward but can be a bit tedious considering the size of the files. The first solution is to download Warzone. This will fix the error but you will have less free space, so we wonder if developers will have a different solution for those who don’t want Warzone on their console.
You can also try reinstalling Modern Warfare 3. Only try this if installing Warzone doesn’t fix the error since MW3 will take a while due to the size of the files.
