    Watching movies off external hard drive

    Hello everybody, I was wondering if its possible to transfer movies from my PC on to the newly XB1 formatted external hard drive.

    It seems that the hard drive, once formatted, the drive can only be detected by an XB1 and nothing else... and when I plug it into my computer it can't even be detected...

  3. Hard Drive not detected

    A couple of days ago, I tried to get on my xbox, but when i did, it said i had no profiles to sign in. At first, i did not worry, but then I went to system settings then memory, and it said no storage device found. So i checked my xbox to make sure my hard
    drive was in, and in fact, it was. I panicked, because my hard drive was clearly in, but my xbox could not detect it. So i pushed the hard drive in further, and at first, it detected it when i had my hand holding the hard drive pushed in. I was relieved, so
    i went to go get my controlled to exit out, but as soon as i took my hand off the hard drive, my xbox restarted, then no longer detected the hard drive. I repeated the procedure 3 times, until it no longer detected my hard drive when i pushed it in. I took
    out my hard drive, examined it for any damages, and I could not find anything wrong with the drive. It seemed like everything was in tact, but it still doesnt work. Can someone help me please!!!???

  4. No Hard drives can be detected

    Did you try connecting your current HD to another 360? If not, try that and see if you can access your HDD on that console, if you can get to another console that is.

    From the sounds of it, your 360 is probably ready to be replaced. I hope your content is safe on that HDD, but there's always that possible chance that the content will be corrupted or unattainable (save files mainly). My suggestion, get a new 360, and try
    to move your content to the new console. I'm not sure if the new Slim consoles will be able to grab content from an old 360 HDD from the white console, but It might be possible.

    I hope everything works out.

    nope sorry ONLY 3rd party bootleg transfer cables do this MS ones do not, you had a bootleg cable to be fair they look VERY convincing (they even have real looking stickers).

    Hard Drive not Detected

    I realize this thread is old, but I was having an issue with my Xbox 360 Slim, Glossy made in 2010.

    I removed my hard drive 1 time very carefully and re-inserted i. When I powered on the xbox I got error e68. I unplugged and replugged everything in and it worked but my hard drive was not detected. It turns out that the SATA cable that goes into the back
    if the hard drive somehow got unplugged, That fixed my xbox. Just to help anyone who has this issue.
