    External hard drive issue


    My external drive isn't being recognized anymore by my OG Xbox, I've already tried some things to diagnose it and my PC will read it for a minute or two. I've heard the last step is to reformat it on
    a PC and then reformat it for the Xbox again, I know I'll lose all my games and such. But will I lose any important save data when doing this? AFAIK everything is saved via cloud and synced on my account but want to double check before I reformat it.

    :)

    Tv configuration App Not working

    Having the same issues. Could be something to do with the external hard drive maybe, not had time to troubleshoot yet though.

    Some ideas to try maybe?

    1. Make the Xbox One drive the primary drive, while the external drive is still plugged in

    2. Try with the external hard drive unplugged

    No idea if this will make a difference, but this issue only started for me since I got an external drive. Unless others are having the same issue with no external hard drive?

    Xbox unable to load games at all :(

    If you have an external hard drive could you try deleting a game and installing it directly to the console's hard drive to rule out issues with the external drive itself?
    I am not using a external drive :(

    Corrupted game file

    Can you try putting the game on an external Hard drive (USB3.0 and at least 256GB) to see if it's a hard drive issue?
    The thing is I don't have an external hard drive and they cost like 70 bucks. I was just wondering if there was a way to fix it without the external hard drive.
