  1. Xbox One X Occasionally Not Recognizing External Hard Drives


    Every once in a while (which is more like once a week when I turn on my Xbox One X), it will fail to recognize one of the two hard drives. Rarely, it will not recognize both.

    I have scanned the hard drives (2.5" WD 4TB HDD's tat 5400 RPM) usingDrive DX, and they are in perfect working condition, with no errors, hardware issues, etc.

    The only way I know of at this point to solve this issue is to unplug and then plug back in the hard drive(s) having the issue.

    I'm hoping this is a software issue that can be resolved in a short period of time. Anyone else have this issue, or have possible ways to avoid it?

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the reply. I'm sorry to hear that the issue is persistent on the External Hard Drive.

    Have you tried connecting the hard drive to a PC?

    Does the PC recognize the external hard drive?

    Does the external hard drive meet the specifications for the Xbox One?

    If the problem persists, I recommend to try a different external hard drive on the Xbox if possible. One thing we want to make sure, Are the ports on the Xbox One functioning?

    Let us know.
