  1. External SSD Alpha Build


    The Alpha build that was pushed yesterday made my external SSD unreadable by my Xbox One X Scorpio Edition. I tried different cables, different external cases and nothing worked.

    I even plugged it into 2 different Windows 10 machines. They saw the USB controller of the external cases, but it did not see the drive.

    Finally I took it to my Mac, and it saw the drive as an unrecognizable drive and asked me to format it. I went ahead formatted it to APFS. Then I took it back to my Xbox and it saw it and then formatted it to the Xbox FS.

    I am now reinstalling all the games that were on it. Not complaining, but want people to be aware of it.

    External Hard Drive. Which one?

    Geez cell phones. I meant Seagate is top notch. WD great too. SSD is great, but you have to "build" your own housing. The Seagate Barracuda is outstanding for SSD. But if you are not wanting to build you own housing, then you should go to the Seagate
    expansion external hard drive. Major Nelson is currently using the Seagate Expansion and says it works great

    Missed my edit window.

    Rise of the Tomb Raider only starts with DLC installed, if console is switched offline.

    If anyone is interested, we managed to find that the problem only occurs if the game is installed on an external ssd.

    If the game is moved from the ssd to the internal hdd the problem does not occur. Formating the ssd and moving the game back did not fix the problem. Other games launch fine from the external ssd.

    The problem seems to be linked to (external?) ssds and (Rise of the Tomb Raider?) DLCs.

    If I have the same XBox One game saved to multiple external drives, how can I tell which drive is being used?

    because of their higher prices I would only be able to afford a small (256GB) SSD drive
    Hi

    Don't be fooled into buying an external SSD, most are far too expensive for what they are. I'm not saying not to buy an SSD though.

    The cheapest option is to make your own. All you need is a standard 2.5" SSD and an external USB 3.0 drive enclosure. SSD's on their own work out a lot cheaper and a Drive enclosure costs only $10. External SSD use the same tech, just in a glued together
    case.

    It's not complicated either. Putting an SSD hard drive in an enclosure is as easy as changing batteries in a TV remote.

    My external SSD is a 2.5" Corsair MX500 SSD drive.
