    External hard drive died mid game, now Xbox won’t reinstall the game


    Console : series x

    external HDD: seagate expansion desktop drive SRD00F2

    game: forza motorsport 7

    so i was going back and grinding through to complete career mode on FM7. Was 2 hours into an endurance race when the game just went, got dashboarded and the xbox refused to acknowledge the existance of my old external hard drive. Pulled the drive and tried to connect it with my PC to no luck either.

    when trying to reinstall the game either onto my new external hard drive or the internal SSD, the add ons will install but the base game will download then vanish.

    any suggestions?

    :)

    Ive tried the power cycle previously, i have just done the reset and kept my locally saved games. I wiped my external hard drives clean and now began reinstalling the games that was on there. So far so good, i have a feeling only the games that was saved
    on my external hard drives corrupted so im going to get them reinstalled and not mess with them again ahaha.

    Hey there ConThePaladin,

    Have you tried to uninstall and reinstall the game yet? Is the game installed to the internal hard drive or to an external hard drive?

    Let us know!

    Game taking too long to start

    Hello caledoniaman,

    Have you tried reinstalling the game, and are you installing the game on the internal hard drive or do you have an external hard drive.

    Thank you

    I’m really pissed about this

    Sounds like your external hard drive may have died. Have you tried rebooting your Xbox? Tried unplugging the external hard drive waiting a sec and plugging it back in?
