    Not able to install games on 2TB external hard drive


    Xbox recent update does not allow external hard drive to receive, transfer or download any content. I have done every workaround and every step. Nothing has worked. I get the message “Installation stopped.” Is there a fix coming from Microsoft anytine
    soon?

    I think xbox may come with a fix soon as this affects a large group of people.

    Is it a new hardrive? Is it full? If no to both, do a power cycle of your system.

    Same, purchased a 2TB Seagate SSHD for my son. Since the last big update, the drive is visible and set to the default, but we cannot transfer or updates games on the device. Microsoft needs to fix this ASAP.

    Please give us more information before we have you doing all sorts of unnecessary. Ensure you have all updates etc. I have 2TB external drives on one of my xbox's I have never had an issue. I also have a hub with 21TB on that with a few external drives
    connected to that. That is on my xbox one x. Restart your xbox etc by turning it off unplugging everything so just ensure everything is connected. Restart your machine Go to storage to see if your drive is there obviously Make sure the hdd is not faulty or
    corrupted . Ensure the hard drive is working Do you have a seagate western digital or some other external drive? All hddd are not the same. Do you have a sdd drive on there just asking? Just ensure the drive is working perfectly. Test the drive by just making
    sure it is in fact being recognized.
