  1. hard drive not being read and took too long to start issues


    ever since the last December 4th update my xbox one s hadn’t been able to read my external drive, i checked it and it works fine on everything else like PC, but when i go into my games and apps it shows it there but says there’s nothing on it and it’s 100% full, games i have on my xbox itself “take too long to start” and when i go into storage in settings (if that doesn’t take too long to start) i click the storage button it just freezes up and does nothing, i filed a problem on the xbox itself just wondering if anyone has any solutions or the same issue?

    I really need a xbox one x owners answer.

    I've never had issues with my hard drive, unless you count the "took too long to start" error as one.

    Hey there RaccoonNinja28.

    So that we can narrow this down, are you able to disconnect your Xbox One from Xbox Live and try starting a game while offline? As you mentioned your console is downloading updates without issue, but I'm curious to see if your connection is affecting your ability
    to play games.
