    Is anyone else’s Seagate external drive not connecting after new Xbox update?


    After the update to the Xbox console recently my external hard drive isn’t connecting to my Xbox anymore. I have the Xbox series x and a 5T external Seagate hard drive. Is it happening to others too? The hard drive turns on when plugged in but won’t connect to the Xbox once that’s plugged in too.

    :)

    Is anyone else’s Seagate external drive not connecting after new Xbox update?

    Hi! Thank you for reaching out.
    I'm AJ, an Independent Advisor for the Xbox Community.
    I'm sorry to hear you are experiencing issues with your external storage unit.

    If you don't mind, I'd like to ask you a few questions:

    - May I ask which Xbox model you are using?

    - To clarify, is the hard drive not showing up at Settings > System > Storage devices?

    - Besides this hard drive and the TV/monitor, do you have any other external devices plugged into your console?

    - Could you go to Settings > General > Power options, and let me know which power mode your console is set to?

    - Is your console plugged in directly into one of the wall's outlets?

    ---

    Thank you! I'll be looking forward to your reply.
    Best regards.

    External hard drive help

    There's an ongoing issue with external HDD's after the last update.

    Supposedly it's being worked on, but we've had no updates in days. Coincidentally, most people are reporting issues with Seagate external drives....

    Xbox One no longer recognizing external Seagate hard drive

    So my xbox one updated yesterday and since then my external seagate hard drive is no longer connecting to my xbox. No error message or anything, just shows what is downloaded on the internal hard drive. I have tried every trick involving full console
    restarts, unplugging and plugging everything back in, changing around which usb-3 port i'm using and trying a different usb-3 cable. Nothing is working. The blue light on the seagate is blinking which means that it's functioning normally, just the xbox isn't
    recognizing it. I haven't touched or done anything to the hard drive, cables, or xbox prior to yesterday. The problem started after the update. Anybody else having this issue?
