  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 :)

    Hi Michael,

    Thanks for your post. I understand you are attempting to use an external hard drive for your Windows 10 PC and Xbox One. When you format a hard drive and install games for use on Xbox One, the hard drive will need to be exclusive to the Xbox One. If you
    begin to move files onto your external hard drive from a PC you will need to reformat for further use with the Xbox One. For more info, check out:

    External Storage Detection - Xbox One
    .

    I hope this information helps.

    . If it is not detected on either the Xbox One or a Windows 10 PC, the hard drive may be corrupted. Please contact the manufacturer of the hard drive for information on it's warranty. Ultimately, the external hard
    drive may need to be replaced.

    I hope this information helps.
