  1. Xbox Beta (PC) not detecting external drive


    I downloaded the Outer Worlds to a Seagate External 2TB drive and it runs perfectly - the only problem is, after ejecting the external drive and connecting it, I cannot open the game through the Xbox Beta without uninstalling and reinstalling the game.

    Steam and Battle.net both detect games on my external drive no matter how many times I eject it - and if they can't detect the files, both launchers have options which allow me to locate the file. I can't seem to find an option like this with the Xbox Beta (PC), so I'm curious if anyone can help me out.

    Games not appearing on external hard drive

    Hi ItsOminousCloud,

    Is the drive being detected under Storage? If it is not then try the following link please:

    Troubleshoot external storage detection on Xbox One


    I would recommend connecting the external drive to a PC/Laptop and if it is detected then what needs to be done next is a reset to the external drive itself.

    1. Plug the drive into the port on the PC or Laptop

    2. Go to files explorer

    3. Locate the drive (is it detected)

    4. If detected, right click then format

    This will wipe the drive. After, eject the drive then plug the drive back into the console port

    Side Note: it may have you format to match the console in NTF format

    Let me know if this helps :)

    Xbox not recognising my external drive after a patch

    Hello!

    Thanks for reaching out to us here on the forums with this situation. I understand you're external hard drive is no longer being detected is that correct? Take a look at this helpful support article:

    Troubleshoot external storage detection on Xbox One
    . You may also want to possibly get on your PC and reformat the external drive back to blank and see if it will get recognized by the console after that. Give it a try and let us know with a reply how
    it goes!

    Media Player isn't recognizing *anything* anymore...

    My Xbox detects and lists that there is an external hard drive attached but when I open it in media player I get the "No files found message". The external works perfect on my PC so I know it is not at fault!

    NEW 1TB EXTERNAL.HARD DRIVE NOT WORKING

    Hi,

    Is your external hard drive rated USB 3.0?

    Did you try your external drive on all the USB ports?

    If you have a PC or laptop and plug it in, does the computer detect it?

    The Xbox One supports all types of external USB 3.0 hard drives, but, could you let us know which drive you purchased please?
