    I recently purchased a Fantom Drive external hard drive for my Xbox One. Every time I try to transfer from the stock drive the installation stops. Anyone have a fix for this??

    External hard drive will not allow transfer

    Hi Greg,

    Thanks for reaching to the forums. We understand having issues with an external hard drive. Are you able to install directly to the external drive? Have you made sure the hard drive is formatted? Here is a guide for

    troubleshooting external hard drive
    .

    Thanks,

    Brad

    12 Games? Really?

    Games need to be installed to the hard drive because the Blu-ray drive doesn't read and transfer the game data fast enough. Installing it to the hard drive allows that to increase load times .

    I would suggest purchasing an external harddrive

    My 500GB HDD (not Slim) Reads Only 39GB After Format. What Am I Doing Wrong?

    If you are using this as an external storage (as the 500GB is not officially supported for the original fat 360 model), then the maximum allowed partition for any drive is 32GB. The cable is meant only for transferring files from an old hard drive to a new
    one, not for using as an external drive. External drive support on the 360 is limited to 2 devices of 32GB maximum on each device - any additional space on a hard drive or flash drive is wasted.

    Marvel heroes omega will not delete. It's been forever!

    If you have an external hard drive transfer the game over, then delete it off of the external drive.

    Formatting a Seagate external hard drive

    The external hard drive was around 20% full. After the I formatted the external hard drive it went down to 0% as everything was uninstalled. Thing is i tried transfering Battlefield 1 from the internal hard drive to the now empty external hard drive and
    it started transferring. Battlefield 1 was one of the games that just stopped installing/transferring when i wanted to move from the internal to the external hard drive so i might of fixed the problem. Now i am just concerned that the games that were uninstalled
    will not have anyting saved and i will have lost everything.
