    Xbox one S will not recognise 500gb ssd


    Hi

    I decided to upgrade the internal hdd of my One S to a ssd (500gb) . At first I tried using a crucial BX500 which the console would not recognise so got a WD blue 500gb ssd which worked for a day. The console booted up on the troubleshoot mode and would no longer recognise the WD ssd and I had to reinstall the og hdd to get the console to work.

    I connected both ssd's to my pc and formatted them to NTFS prior to install and used OSU1 for the initial install.

    I have now reformatted both and connected via a usb adapter to use as external storage and the console will still not recognise they are connected (tried all 3 ports and 2 different adapter cables).

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    :)

    Hello dear Gamer, first it's a pleasure to be able to help you today.

    My name is Vinicius.

    I am a gamer and independent advisor on the XBOX community platform.

    Hey Lost_Gecko, how are you today? Hope you're well.

    The SSD is on a case that permits you to connect externally, right?

    Assuming the answer is yes, have you tried to restore your console?

    Please try it, and then try to connect it again. :)

    First clean the cache of your console that way:

    1. With the console turned on, hold the XBOX power button on the console for 10 seconds until you hear a small sound.

    2. Wait 10 seconds.

    3. Turn it back on.

    Note: It may take a while for him to call, don't worry, it's normal.

    Then, restore your console keeping the games and apps:

    ***IMPORTANT*** If you share accounts with someone, you will have to redo the process of placing the account as the main one again, be aware of the chances you still have to do this, as Microsoft makes available per year, only 5 chances so you can make some account your console's main account.

    1. Press the Xbox button to open the dashboard.

    2. Select System > Settings > System > Console Information >

    3. Select Reset console > Restore and keep my games and apps.

    4. When asking to pull settings from an old xbox, put no

    5. You will have to log in your accounts again, and when you sign in with your account, make sure you turn it has your home console also, that's it.

    NOTE: Rest assured, you won't lose games or saves

    xbox one S - will it have hybrid drive like the elite?

    you can also get an external SSD drive and store your games on that and just buy the 500GB S

    Do you think Microsoft should allow Xbox One users to Upgrade their Hard-Drives, or offer a service giving users options for them to Upgrade our hard-drives for us?

    These aren't SSDs, they are hybrid SSDs. (Combination of a regular platter, with a smaller SSD "Cache") These have been available in 500GB size for many years now, and for only a tiny bit more money than a regular 500GB HDD.
