  1. Need help with games not installing to external drive


    Games will no longer install to my external hard drive. Attempt to install a game and it stops, giving me an "installation stopped" error. Apps install fine. Apps also transfer to and from fine. It's only games that won't install. Am part of the xbox insider program running the newest update. I'm on an original xbox one (not S or X). Tried all the suggested steps for fixing an installation error. Is anyone else having problems installing games to external hard drive? Any fixes? Would leaving the insider program fix it?

    Installation stopped message still appearing when trying to update Forza Horizon 4

    The external hard drive helps a lot, it's used because the game pass needs, haha
    Try uninstalling the game and installing again.

    Issues with installation

    I'm gonna be more specific: the game doesn't accept installation on external storage. Whether it's flash drive or external hard drive, the game isn't meant to install on external storage connected through USB just like Need for Speed Rivals on Xbox 360.
    You need to install it on an internal hard drive (media hard drive). The link I provided to you aren't external hard drives; they're internal hard drives for the Xbox 360:

    Not enough space

    Also check in the settings, that your external hdd is set up as main drive for installing new content. If a game which is on the internal hdd need an update you could move the game to the external drive. Than your console should be able to download new
    updates. Hope that helps.

    Fallout 4 FREEZING when i try to go to MOD section in main menu

    Bummer, sorry the steps didn't help. Are you seeing this issue with others games on the console as well? Are you using an external hard drive to store the game or the internal drive? If you're using an external drive, try to install the game to the internal
    drive and see if that helps.

    Let us know!

    playing on other xbox

    Hi

    If you log into your friends console all of your downloaded content should be available for you to download and play. If you own the disc version of the game all you will need to insert the disc install the game and play.

    I personally have all of my games installed to an external hard drive then all I need to do is plug the drive in log into my profile and play from the external drive need to download of install the game on another console.
