  1. Game updates result in game installing on two drives


    I have a Series X with three drives, the ssd drive it comes with, the additional ssd drive, and an external usb drive. I have games on all the. When some games that i have in the usb drive update, the don't update the installation on the usb they instead install a new instance of the game on one of the internal ssd drives. Is this an issue being addressed?

    :)

    Unable to install Forza Motorsport 6 - 0x87e00064

    @kingofjohn: Yes, i have try to clear the cache of the Xbox One. With the same result. The installation stopped at 4%

    I change the game once again at the local store.

    But the installation stopped at 4%.

    The drive make a strange noise before it stopps.

    Drive noise sound sample: http://bit.ly/1OPVw7R

    Is the drive broken? But why i can install the other two games?

    Should External Hard Drives be switched off?

    As I understand it system updates will as Hydro skillet says be unstalled on the internal Hd but game updates will be installed to the Hd where the game is installed... I have left the external drives on my two Xbox One consoles on and haven't had any negative
    experiences with that..

    Installation Stopped

    I have the same issue with a fantomdrive 2tb sshd i bought last summer. The drive worked fine up until the latest xbox update. I could still play games that were already on the drive, but could not install updates or new games to the drive. I would get
    a message saying the drive is ready, then installation started and then installation stopped. This would happen over and over until i stopped the installation. I have been seeing other people with the exact same issue in these message boards. I have found
    out that apps can still be installed to the external drive, but no games. From what i have seen this seems to be an issue resulting from the latest xbox update and not faulty hardware.

    Momentary freezing?

    Even while the game is fully installed to the hard drive? (are you talking of the Game disc Lag or the Hard Disc Drive Lag?)

    I thought it was due to the games so I installed it to the HDD and still the same result. lol

    I got the Xbox One! Impressions inside the thread.

    Disc games are slow to install too because blu-ray reads slow.
    A 4x blu-ray drive transfers data at a faster rate than a 12x dvd drive. So it is doubtful slow install times are at the drive end.

    From what I've read when you install a game the One tries to get any game updates at the same time, meaning you've got two things trying to access the hard drive.

    Disk installs apparently go a lot faster if you disconnect from the internet.
