    Hi,

    The only thing technically different about these drives is there formatting. Xbox branded drives are already formated for use with the console.

    To use them on your PC you need to run Windows 10 disk manager and format the drive.

    I don't know where you are from but in my country (UK) these drives are seriously overpriced. You can get a bigger stand alone SSD for less, just plug it in to a external drive enclosure. Even with the enclosure price, it's still cheaper.

    Hi

    You will be able to use the drive on a PC but any data on there will not be readable by the PC. You would need to format it via the PC which will wipe any data on the drive. Just make sure you format the correct drive! :)

    Yes it is, but any information on the drive might be lost if you need to format it.

    Hi There,

    Most external hard drives can be used with laptops, but they require some extra work, because of the extra formatting that must take place in order to recognize one format or another. Take a look at this thread and see if you can gather some useful information
    regarding what you would like to do with your hard drive.
