  1. Xbox Request - Better options for external / internal drive options.


    I just wanted to throw out a certain feature that I think would do well on console. In extreme short, I want to be able to toss any external drive I want at the console and it be capable of saturating the bandwidth for reads (at least). So, M.2 external? Yes, I want the console capable of accepting all that data with no bottlenecks. Thats what I want, realistic is likely something less. Gen 2 USB 3.1? I just detest load times. I know, I know - I have seen the statements on load times, but I really do not like taxing an internal drive. Most def want external, or an ability to hotswap in an M.2 directly would also be super nice and greatly appreciated.

    Resuming Games from External HD

    @COD

    Most external drives aren't designed for continuous data transfer, they get hot. External setups with fans or at a minimum large vented cases (preferably aluminum) will disperse the heat better. Docking stations if the One sees them as external rather than
    internal would also be a better option.

    Basically if your buying the cheap external drives designed for backup duties then expect them to be disposable if your gaming off them. They aren't going to last the decade or so they normally would under normal circumstances.

    They are also pulling power from your console so going the powered external route is also a better option. Best option.....replace your internal.

    Xbox Acting Weird

    The external hard drive could be having a hardware issue. I would suggest picking a game you are having trouble with and via the manage game option migrate it to the internal disk. As another option you could de-install the game and then re-download
    it to the internal drive.

    Xbox One External Drive Specs???

    The best option I think is to have replaceable internal drives and external support....wish MS would have taken that route.

    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?

    You guys aren't getting what I meant, It would be better to have a better performing internal hard drive then external with that being said and ssd would be best. I was not saying microsoft shouldn't allow the option for external hard drives they should
    because then you can bring downloaded games where ever you go which would be great when going to a friends house.

    A internal ssd hard-drive would make the performance much more smoother and faster like said before you will increase the speeds of your install, boot, and load times for items that you want on the internal memory.

    Can I download my digital games onto external hard drive

    Plug the external hard drive into a USB port on the XBOX. The USB drive needs to be at least USB 3.0 and 256GB or larger. Go into the system settings and storage, locate the drive, run a quick format on it. Once that is done you can set that drive as
    the default install option for your games. Any current games on the internal storage can be migrated over by going to that game choose the manage game option and migrate to the external drive if you like.
