    Xbox One X Hard Drives Keep Failing...?


    I bought a used Xbox One X from a good friend. It had hardly been used and was stored in its original box most of its life. I set it up and got it going with no issues. About a week later it started stuttering really bad and Apex would crash every now and
    again. After a while it started getting worse and worse until it wouldn't load anything and the main home page would start crashing as well. Maybe 3 weeks in and the Xbox basically bricked itself. E102 E103 E105 errors. Couldn't factory reset it, couldn't
    do anything it just looped me in those errors. Put update/reset files on a USB and tried that way it wouldn't accept it and kept looping me through the errors. Turns out the HDD had failed.. Okay... I bought a new one that was faster and better and installed
    Xbox on it via my PC. it worked great for 2 days no issues.. in the middle of a game it just randomly bricked itself again. Started the loop over again. I gave up and got a regular Xbox One, no issues with it. Was bored last week decided to see if i can get
    it to boot up again. took the hard drive out of the One X and wiped it clean and started over. after installing Xbox on it again and getting it back together I booted it up and it worked great. Worked amazing for a week zero issues. I was in the middle of
    a game of Apex Legends last night and it bricked itself again and started that loop over. My question is

    1)[mod removed]??

    2) is something else causing it to brick itself? I know if i do all the work to reinstall Xbox it will work again but for how long?

    3) If its an update causing the crash why does it work for a week and why TF would Microsoft not fix this immediately?

    Anyone with any insight, please help me out..

    No holding the power button to cycle it off and on wont do anything. Using a USB to try to force an update or reinstall Xbox doesn't work it cycles those 3 errors in a loop. Unplugging and leaving it off for a week doesn't do anything either.

    :)

    XBOX ONE X

    The hard drive is only 1 TB. When the Xbox One S was first released it had a 2 TB hard drive. 1TB is not enough for hardcore gamers which is what this console seems to be intended for. The One X needs a 2 or 3TB hard drive. I understand the Xbox is trying
    to keep the price down but the targeted consumer, hardcore gamers, are willing to pay extra for what we need. This will force the targeted consumer to use an external hard drive which to my understanding, and I may be wrong, will have a negative effect on
    load times on the One X. If Xbox releases a One X at a later date with the necessary memory this will cause those of us that bought the console at release to feel betrayed. Different versions of the One X need to be released at launch like they did with the
    One S giving us the choice of a 1 or 2TB console.

    Xbox One X Hard Drives Keep Failing...?

    If its that new isntbit under some warranty? It shouldn't be the Drive for a model so new. But uf its not under Warranty You did say an Xbox one X. You could borrow or buy someone extermal drive and download your games to that. Once you do that disconnect
    that drive . Now reformat that drive and reset the system. Try playing any game with that drive eyc. if it works then you know the drive is fine either use the external drive which i recommend since loads will be faster etc get a good 4gb external drive. Hope
    that helps. Just thought of something make sure this is not just for one game but all.

    It won't factory reset. It loops through those error codes if i try. The only way to get it working again is pull the hard drive out and completly wipe it and start from scratch.
