  1. Xbox hard drive


    Ok so I have an xbox one s hard drive that I pulled from an old xbox. With that being said how can I get it to read on a new xbox one s as an external? I want to use it as external memory but my xbox wont even register that it is there. I bought a case
    that meets up to its specifications and everything just doesnt seem to pick it up at all

    :)

    Hard Drive Not Recognised

    Hi, the problem is that you configured the hard drives as xbox USB storage devices, this will have removed information the console needs to distinguish an xbox hard drive from a USB hard drive. In essence this now means you can't use the hard drives as
    xbox hard drives again.

    The game couldn't start. Try downloading the game again error

    Hi there,

    From where did you buy your hard drive from? How much was it? Is it an official Xbox hard drive? If you bought a cheaper hard drive from a private seller on Amazon or an auction site, it is highly likely that your hard drive is not an official Xbox hard
    drive. Original Xbox games will not load on un-official hard drives.

    XBOX 360 E CONSOLE WON'T DETECT NEW DRIVE

    Hi, an Xbox internal hardrive has to have a specific boot sector for the Xbox to see it ( that boot sector would contain all the information the Xbox needs to enable it to be used as an internal Xbox hard drive such as drive size, whether it's an official
    hard drive etc ) an external hard drive is another matter totally, external drives work differently but some games do require you to have an internal hard drive but that's a whole other subject.

    Where we're getting out wires crossed is that in order to have an internal hard drive other than an official hard drive to work you'd have to somehow modify the boot sector of the unofficial hard drive to something the Xbox can see ( for example the Xbox
    sees the hard drive and gets the info that it's a hard drive suitable for use as an internal Xbox hard drive yadda yadda )

    With that said, if you just put any old regular hard drive into the internal hard drive bay on your Xbox it's just not going to work at all.

    XBox 360 game required hard drive issue

    Some games do require an Xbox hard drive due to the system files on the drives. External hard drives will not work. They require an official MS Xbox 360 hard drive.
