    External HD power saving mode


    Hi,

    i use an external HD on my Xbox One X (an Intenso Memory Center 3 TB, internally it's an Toshiba). Every time i play and pause for approximately 10 minutes, the HD goes to power savin mode and it lasts some seconds, until it's completely "back".

    I tried to enable power mode in HD on my notebook, but it's not working. And it's really annoying.

    Is there anything i can do to disable the power saving mode on my Xbox? Or anything else i can do?

    Every hint is appreciated External HD power saving mode :)

    Greetings

    Mario

    :)

    I don't see how this could help me? It's not my Xbox which goes in power saving mode but my external harddisk.

    Or am i wrong here?

    There is an option to keep external drives powered up in the settings on xbox console.

    Not at console at mo, but if memory serves me right, I think it's in power settings(most likely).

    This may only be for when the console is off, but in instant on mode, and may not affect drive while console is on, but give.it a try?

    You are going to have to chase this with the manufacturer which apparently is a German company as the PDF for the drive is only in German. Sounds as though the drive has a built in power save feature that needs to be disabled or set to a longer time.

    Thanks @all for your help.

    I couldn't find anything in manual abut this issue, so i contacted the support of the manufacturer about this. While searching with google i found some results telling me, this "feature" cannot be disabled.

    So i will wait for response now.
