    External Hard Drive problem


    I am having trouble with the game "Destiny". My xbox 360 hard drive is not large enough to meet the required 20 GB of space necessary for the game. However, I have an external usb drive connected and already formatted to be used by xbox 360 games and I
    am not getting prompted by the game to choose a storage device... it seems to only choose the device without enough storage... can anyone tell me if there is a way to make this game choose an alternate storage dewvice... thank you

    :)

    External hard drive problems

    do you have that box checked that says "turn off external devices on standby" or something like that? That might be the issue.

    Memoria esterna non rilevata e il controller non risponde ai comandi [Translation - External memory is not detected and the controller does not respond to commands]

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the reply. I'm sorry to hear that the issue is persistent on the External Hard Drive.

    Have you tried connecting the hard drive to a PC?

    Does the PC recognize the external hard drive?

    Does the external hard drive meet the specifications for the Xbox One?

    If the problem persists, I recommend to try a different external hard drive on the Xbox if possible. One thing we want to make sure, Are the ports on the Xbox One functioning?

    Let us know.

    Xbox Game Pass PC error 0x8007001f when installing games

    Hi, sorry for that issue, the problem is the external hard drive, for some reason (I don't know why), the games that require Administrator approval have issue on external drive.
    Thanks for the answer. External hard drive it is not the problem in my case. While trying to find a solution to this Xbox Game pass for PC / Windows Store error I did reinstall Windows 10 on my iMac's internal hard drive. The problem with error 0x8007001f
    persists even when Windows 10 is installed on the internal hard drive.
