  1. External Hard Drive Causes Xbox To Freeze


    Just got a new external hard drive. It formatted and said it was ready for use. But every time i try and downlod something, my entire xbox freezes and i’m forces to hard reset. Has anyone seen this? When i unplug the hard drive everything works fine again.

    Mercenaries (free for games with gold) freezes

    Hey everyone, i got the free game of the month on my xbox 360, and the game constantly freezes after youre in the chinese area of the game/map. Like the 4th mission. Very aggravating and unable to play. I tried refreshing the cache, and soultion
    7 with the system update. I purchased gold tonight beacuse of this game. Sucks i cant play it.
    Hi there,

    I have heard of this issue on the original xbox games and sometimes it can be caused by external hard drives, So have to ask if you are using an external hard drive and if the game is stored on that external hard drive.

    Not able to install games on 2TB external hard drive

    Have you used the External hard drive on any other systems? (PC maybe) if so this caused the hard drive to be incompatible with downloading games and you must reformat the external hard drive.

    These are some risks you take when you purchase an xbox.

    Sorry to know this kind of thing happened to you, but this is a very individual issue and it is not general problem affect a few people. Could be caused by Xbox, could be caused by your external hard drive. I suggest changing a new external drive, if it
    happens again, then your Xbox cause this problem.

    Lego Dimensions - Load Corrupted

    You've tried removing the hard drive and running the game and it still freezes at that point? I would've figured it was the hard drive causing that issue? You mention your saves are backed up with a USB and you tried it with it connected to the USB?

    Could you try it on another Xbox 360 if possible?

    Also try making another save file to see if the problem still persists.

    It also sounds like your hard drive for your 360 is illegitimate; Xbox 360 S and E hard drives should be a minimum of 250 or 500GB of space. This doesn't apply to external hard drives, however.

    Can't play apex legends because of this error...

    Could be the external hard drive causing the issue then it won't be the first time I seen errors appearing after updates on external hard drives. Try installing it on internal drive instead if you can?.
