    Seagate External HDD not recognised by Series X

    First if it's an xbox series x optimized game moving it to an external drive won't work

    Only bc titles that arent patched can

    You can look at your library to see which ones are optimized or patched for the fps booster

    Only the external nvme for series x Seagate cards work with optimized games

    External hard drive

    I'm Samy an independent advisor. Welcome to the Xbox community. How are you?

    If the game is optimized for Xbox Series S/X you will not be able to run the game on an external hard drive. You will need to place the game in the console's internal memory.

    Buying game for XS but then it’s not after installing it

    Ok did you put it in an internal memory or storage card or external usb drive

    If external that would be why

    You can only put it in an internal memory or storage card

    Now I'd you are saying you have a Xbox one S

    That isn't a series s

    Series consoles.are different and are not considered Xbox one nor is it part of the name

    Also any games.that are meant for the series consoles has to be on storage card or.internal memory

    Xbox one games works regardless of Xbox one s or og or one x

    And you can use any storage

    But for Xbox series consoles there is only s or x not one s/x

    And only games on optimized nvme or the Xbox nvme storage card will download the series version

    If you put it on external it would only download the Xbox one as you arent running thr optimized nvme

    External SSD on Xbox Series X?

    Hi

    Optimized for Series X

    There are some Xbox One games in there like Gears 5, Sea of Thieves, Forza Horizon 4 and a few others.

    These 'Optimized' games will need to be installed internally or on to the Expansion card.

    External USB Storage can hold all games, but Series X/S games or optimized Xbox One games can not run from USB Storage.

    Updates download location

    Yeah I understand this, but like I said before...all the games are in the external, but for whatever reason is upgrading and updating to the internal.
    This behaviour only occurs on Series X|S optimised games and only on the series X|S console.

    Basically, if you have an Series X and your Xbox One game has been optimised for the system it will be moved to the faster storage during the update.

    That makes sense...so let me ask you this...will “not optimized “ games work any slower if I run them from an external hard drive rather than the actual internal drive?

    Thanks for the help
