    External storage device questions


    I'm trying to move my games from Xbox one to an external hard drive (Seagate 1TB) and I'm having difficult. I have formatted the device. The games have been on queued for hours with 0 transfer of data. Can some one suggest what to do next?

    :)

    Microsoft have said that this feature is coming. They have not said when that will be yet.

    I have had some problems like that before. What I used to do was cancel the transfer and restart it again and I would do one or two games at a time. I think with having a lot of games transferring to the external hard drive can be a little much. That seemed
    to work out as well as try reformatting it again and also restarting the console and only doing one or two games at a time. I know that it can be frustrating having to wait and do each one individually can be bothersome but at least you can get your games
    on there.

    Xbox one games crashing upon launch

    Hi there,

    just to be sure, are the games installed on the internal storage device or an external storage device?

    If they are installed on an external storage device, please try and see what happens if the game is installed on the internal storage device and the external storage device is disconnected.

    Xbox One X sluggish performance

    Hi there,

    do you notice any difference in performance when there is no external storage device compared to when the external storage device is connected, or when the external storage device is connected to a different USB port?

    Let us know the results

    I didn’t think so but thought I would try it. In that case do you know where I can find usb 3.0 devices at a good price?
