    External Hard Drives for the Xbox One


    I have a question for those who are smarter at this than I am.



    I have one of the original Xbox One systems. To be precise, when HALO came out, I purchased the Xbox One Master Chief Edition.
    I watched a video that showed I can attach an external case on the side of the Xbox that will hold a 2.5 inch hard drive with a capacity of 2TB.
    That same video stated you can put a case on top of the Xbox that will hold a 3.5 inch hard drive with a capacity of 4TB.

    My question is a simple one. Can I put a larger capacity hard drive into either of those cases?

    :)

    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.

    hard drive

    As an idea for xbox one hard drives because they are internal and not external try plugging in an external drive to save or transfer all important games to external hard drive and leave not so important games onto internal drive
    that way you can take them anywhere and not have hard drive failures with xbox one.

    Are you running it off of the hard drive on the Xbox One or an external one? If you are playing off of the internal drive on the Xbox One then you may want to get an external for it because that is a known issue as far as the Xbox One hard drive and this
    game.
