    External Hard Drive Formatting Issues


    When I click on format, the drive is not formatting. It remains unformatted and shows as if two hard drives are plugged in.

  2. External Hard Drives: De-Formatting From Xbox One

    I am going to tell you how to remove the formatting on a External Hard Drive from a Xbox One.

    Requirements:

    Xbox 360

    1. Insert external hard drive into Xbox 360

    2. Go into System

    3. Go into Storage

    4. Press 'Y' on External Hard Drive (Will be called "unformatted device")

    5. Click on Format

    6. The External Hard Drive will now contain the Xbox 360's formatting.

    7. If you do not want the Xbox 360's formatting on the External Hard Drive, all you need to do is format the External Hard Drive on a computer. Otherwise, if you don't care that the Xbox 360's formatting is on the External Hard Drive, then ignore this step.

    Hope This Helped Anyone Who Did Not Know How To Remove An Xbox One's Formatting From An External Hard Drive!

  3. External Hard Drive Formatting?

    All over the internet people are saying that you can format an external hard drive to hfs+ to watch videos that are over 4 gigs in size on your xbox 360.

    I just want to hear an official answer (or even a highly knowledgable one!) on this matter.

    I have formatted my external to hfs+ multiple times, put movies on it, and yet the xbox 360 doesn't even know it's (the drive) there.

    What am i doing wrong?

    Xbox External Hard Drive Won't Delete The Game

    Hi Cipher XIII,

    Thanks for your post. I understand you are experiencing an issue with uninstalling a game on your external hard drive. Have you attempted to re-format your hard drive? You may want to check your hard drive's manual on the proper steps to format it.

    Formatting will completely wipe your hard drive's data, this should correct any issues with installation and uninstallation on your external hard drive.

    I hope this helps.

    Problemas con disco externo[Translation-Problems with external disk]

    Hello Edward,

    Thanks for the replies. We recommend trying to format the external hard drive on a PC. Make sure to format to NTFS. Also here is a guide for issues

    detecting external hard drive
    . If the hard drive is not compatible with the console it will read it as a media device no matter the format.

    Thanks,

    Brad
