    External Hard Drive has died, trying to install disc to Internal HDD but no luck...


    Hi, I have a 500GB internal HDD on my xbox one and a 1TB external HDD which I install a lot of games on. My external HDD has failed and I believe I'll need to get a new one. In the meantime, I want to install a game which was on the External, on the internal
    so I can play for now. It's Halo 5, which I have the disc version of the game. I know normally I would transfer the game file from the external to the internal, but now that my external is broken, how can I install this game? I put the game disc in drive and
    it doesn't show the option to install to internal. Does anybody have a solution to this? Whenever I go to the store it says I need to purchase Halo 5, but I own the hard copy of it. Thanks!

    :)

    is it possible this is a hardware issue

    Hey ShinobiSword,

    i noticed you have an external hard drive in use with your console, are the games that are crashing installed on your internal or external hard drive?

    if they are on the external drive it may be worth trying to move the install of the game to your internal drive and having another go.

    Hope this helps, best of luck!

    Forza Horizon - The game gets stuck at the "Xbox 360" screen when starting the game on the Xbox One

    Sorry to hear the steps didn't work out like we wanted. To clarify, is this a disc based game or a digital download? I understand that the game is downloaded to the console through Backward Compatibility, but I guess to clarify. Do you have a Forza Horizon
    disc in the console tray as well? If so, can you ensure the game has no scratches or smudges on the disc.

    Also, how is the game installed? Is it installed to the internal hard drive or maybe to an external hard drive. If it's installed to an external drive, can you try deleting the game and installing a fresh copy to the internal hard drive to see if that helps?
    Let us know!

    Halo 4 Install on 360 question

    Disc 2 is installed to the Internal HDD which is a Microsoft 500gb. Disc 1 is installed to the External HDD which is a Western Digital 2TB.

    about the hard drive

    Hi,

    The Internal hdd for the 360 must be a Microsoft branded hard drive - as these drives come in the correct compatible container to install into the hard drive bay.

    The 360 also supports external USB hard drives up to 2TB and Flash drives.
