  1. Xbox is unable to find external storage device while being on the newest alpha build.


    Hello all,

    Usually I don't have any problems with the alpha build; until today. My WD 2TB hard drive is not being picked up by the xbox. I have tried all usb ports and nothing. I even went reformatted the drive on a PC, reset my xbox, and still nothing usable.

    After the reset and reformat, the xbox did see it and I was able to get to the reformat for xbox screen. I confirmed everything but nothing happened. I rebooted the xbox and tried all usb ports again with no luck. Everytime I would plug the hdd in I would get to the reformat for xbox and nothing would actually happen.

    I am on the most recent build from today - 2005.200512-1756.

    Thanks everyone for your time.

    Xbox Games and Apps will not launch also 30 games uninstalled all at once.

    Hey there KNG Rex.

    It sounds like the external storage device may be the culprit. Are you able to install games to your internal storage while the external storage device is unplugged? Try navigating your Xbox One without any USB devices plugged in to see if there's a change.
    Let us know :)

    'Saved state' function of previously played game not working

    Hey there nickillaz.

    Are you able to confirm if the games that you are currently experiencing this issue with are installed on your external storage device? It's possible your HDD isn't being powered while the Xbox One is powered down, leading to the game closing.

    Xbox one games crashing upon launch

    Hi there,

    just to be sure, are the games installed on the internal storage device or an external storage device?

    If they are installed on an external storage device, please try and see what happens if the game is installed on the internal storage device and the external storage device is disconnected.

    DLC and Compatibility Packs not working.

    Hey there TinFour.

    If the DLC isn't being registered at all, the issue may come down to your current storage option. Are you using an external or internal storage device? If you're saving externally, try moving that content to internal storage to see if there's a change. Alternatively,
    try downloading the content onto a different external device.

    External storage

    You can also try unplugging the external storage device, then power cycling the xbox, then reconnecting the external storage device and see of that works.
