    External Storage Hard drive


    I store all of my games on an external storage hard drive but one day my Xbox stopped recognizing the connection. Does anyone know what to do other than the basic troubleshooting steps (turning things on and off, unplugging - plugging back in) to resolve
    this issue?

    :)

    It wouldn't work as an external hard drive. You would need an actual external hard drive attached to the console for extra storage.

    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,

    Major issue

    Hard reset, remove/add external hard drive, hard reset again.

    Are the missing games on the external or internal storage?

    Copy files from Mac to Xbox One external HDD ?

    Hi,

    Not sure what you wanted to do here, could you elaborate?

    As for external hard drives, you can't partition them for use as both external storage for games and for use with your Mac or PC. You can use an external hard drive on the Xbox One as a media drive, though.

    If you format an external hard drive for Xbox One games storage, the whole drive is formatted and the file system is changed.

    External hard drives

    Hi there Ttocs,

    Thanks for reaching out. I understand there is an issue with an
    external hard drive. To help clarify,

    • Does the console recognize the external hard drive?
    • What type of external hard drive are you using?

    I recommend to try the following troubleshooting articles:


    If the issue persists, For more information about partitioning an
    external hard drive, refer to the manufacturer’s instructions.
    Devices that don’t meet these requirements will be treated as media storage, such as for music or video.
    For more info, see How to manage storage on Xbox One.

    Hope this helps.
