    External Storage
    I was researching the best external hard drives to use for Xbox One and saw that the Western Digital My Book was the most recommended. I happened to have a My Book Live that I bought a while back and never really used. Will this work as an external hard
    drive, or does it have to be something that directly connects to my console via USB?

    :)

    Yes, the PlayStation 4 Supports External Storage, but There’s a Catch

    Well now I am wondering if the X1 will let us use it to put game son it, probably not External Storage :(

    I don't think that it's that bad of a catch to prevent me from using the external storage. Though I am not sure if I will ever need to actually use external storage. The fact that there will be 33 games at launch makes me think that eventually, a lot of users will need the external space. I'm OK with it not being functional for downloadable games. No biggie.

    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.

    All digital games won't install saying "installing"

    Do you have room on your internal/external storage? sometimes games require storage on internal and external

    These might help you identify the problem:

    1. Power the Xbox One down completely and plug the external drive into a different USB port on the Xbox One. Power the Xbox back on and see if the problem persists. If it does, it's that particular USB port that's the issue.

    2. If the external HDD has a power cord, try plugging it into a different outlet. If it's plugged into a surge protector, try plugging it directly into a wall (temporarily, just to see if the power is the issue).

    3. Last option -- move your data on the external HDD to your internal HDD, and reformat it. I doubt this is the problem, but occasionally I've seen this work.

    Just make sure your console is connected to Xbox Live while playing and you shouldn't have any issues with game save data.
