    Connecting 300gb hdd as internal drive


    Hello

    I have Xbox360 Slim, and I've just connected as 300gb

    but the xbox doesn't recognize the hdd, (I don't see it in storage settings).

    is Microsoft also limiting internal hdd ?

    and if so can I bypass it ?

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks

    :)

    Can an external hard drive be the system drive? (Not a flash drive)

    No you can't use the external drive as a system drive unfortunately.

    Even if you could you still need your internal HDD for cacheing purposes.

    Some games can only use the cache on the internal HDD on not on USB system drives.

    Pretty soon Xbox One owners will be able to swap hard drives without voiding the warranty.

    Connecting 300gb hdd as internal drive

    There is no 300gb internal hard drive for the 360 so it sounds like you don't have an official hard drive,that'll be why your having problems.

    There's a 250gb or 320gb hdd for the 360s.

    E 69 harddrive error

    E69: Hard Drive Error. It could be a problem with the Hard Drive itself or a problem with the internal connection to the hard drive.

    Was the HDD an offical MS drive of a knock off?

    But most likely your going to have to start over.

    What would you like to see in an Xbox One Slim

    No BluRay Drive and a 3TB Internal HDD.

    External Hard Drive Update

    Also just re-read your post.

    I was referring to the hidden folder on the drive once the drive has been converted to 300GB

    The data files you had from the 32GB partition will probably not be compatible with the drive now you are using the full 300GB
