    Connected to XBL + Hard Drive: Freezes at loading circles when i try and skip sign in.

    Just the hard drive + NO XBL connection: Still Freezes.

    Xbox one file system

    Hi

    I don't know what file format Xbox One uses with external hard drives but when you first connect a drive the console should offer to format the drive for games (If it meets the specs), With my Xbox One I have both a 2TB and 4TB external hard drives connected
    and working without any issues for playing games.

    Is the controller connected via USB?
