    Hello, I was wondering if the xbox app is able to detect games from a different drive. I download all my games on a portable drive and i wanted to play the games on my laptop. But when i connected that drive to the laptop the games were not detected.

    Hard Disk

    Hi,

    Plug your drive into a PC/Laptop. The drive won't be detected straight away - this is normal, the drive is formatted for a different Operating System. In the Windows Search bar type
    Disk Management.

    From here you should be able for format your drive. The drive needs to be formatted to NTFS for use on a PC and for media playback on the Xbox One.

    xbox one not recognising my hard drive

    Hi there agentdutywars17,

    Thanks for reaching out here in Xbox Forums. I understand there is an issue with the Xbox console detecting the external hard drive. I recommend to try the following:

    • Troubleshoot external storage detection on Xbox One
    • Try a different port on the Xbox console
    • Try using another cable that connects from your external hard drive to your Xbox console
    • Try a different external hard drive to help isolate the issue between the Xbox or the hard drive

    Give this a try and let us know the results.

    Xbox ONE- External Drive Problems

    If the drive is emitting a repetitive pattern of clicking noises, that is usually a symptom of a dead HDD..

    I'd try to see if it's at least able to be detected and reformatted on a Windows PC. If it is able to be detected, reformat it as NTFS (this erases the drive) and set it up again on the Xbox. If it still can't be detected and continues to make repetitive
    clicking noises, the drive may have died.

    If it's dead, I'd try checking in with any manufacturer's warranty or return policy from the store it was bought from.

    Xbox One Media Player Not Showing Subtitles When Enabled

    Hello!

    Thanks for reaching out to us here on the forums with this situation. I understand you're having trouble playing subtitles from a MKV file that you have loaded from external storage to your Xbox Console is that correct? The compatibility of the file would
    need to be checked from its source. The Xbox One Media Player App may require a different File type for the subtitles to be detected. If you could try different formats you might be able to find the correct one to display from the App.
