  1. Can't play FH5 off of external ssd


    I use an external SSD using USB-C for most of my gaming since my laptop's internal drive is quite small. Most of the games I play are on Epic or Steam, but I was a big FH4 fan, so I decided to use the game pass to play FH5 but the game is unusable over an external SSD. I installed the game on the SSD and after reformating my SSD to the correct format, I was able to play the game for a few days. I then went back home for Thanksgiving break and connected that same SSD to my desktop at home, but my desktop basically acted like nothing was installed on that drive. I figured it was fine and I would just use the laptop I used to play the game initially, but that won't work either. When I tried to load the game it told me that it was not found in the drive and so I reset and restored the app and restarted my computer and now it won't even show that it's installed. It's not like I can just run the .exe since Microsoft blocks you from opening the game folder. I even tried reinstalling the game and it just keeps giving me a 0x80073d0d error every time I try

    Xbox Game Pass PC error 0x8007001f when installing games

    Exact same issue, exact same setup. I run off a external SSD for the increased speed as my Imac 27 - 2019 doesn't have an SSD. Basically I can't play most games from my game pass which is very disappointing.

    Will the Xbox Series X be able to use my external SSD

    This has been covered and been mentioned as it has been a big concern. Right now, yes you can use your external SSD to play Xbox One and Xbox 360 games but you will not be able to play stored SX games on the external SSD. To be able to able to play SX
    games they need to installed on the Series X's SSD not the external one.

    Xbox games loading time

    Are you running the games off your internal or an external harddrive? the internal is more than often quite a bit faster than the external unless you have an SSD exterrnal

    Xbox upgrade

    I'd wait for scarlett and in the mean tone get a cheap 500gb - 1tb SSD external drive to play your games off of. They will load faster and it will be easy to switch over to the new xbox when it arrives.

    Rise of the Tomb Raider only starts with DLC installed, if console is switched offline.

    If anyone is interested, we managed to find that the problem only occurs if the game is installed on an external ssd.

    If the game is moved from the ssd to the internal hdd the problem does not occur. Formating the ssd and moving the game back did not fix the problem. Other games launch fine from the external ssd.

    The problem seems to be linked to (external?) ssds and (Rise of the Tomb Raider?) DLCs.
