    Xbox one external hard drive formatting issues

    I recently have purchased a 2Tb external hard drive for my xbox. When plugging in the hard drive, the screen to format it will pop up then quickly go away. This happens over and over again, and I am not sure what to do to fix this.

    :)

    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.

    Copy files from Mac to Xbox One external HDD ?

    Hi,

    Not sure what you wanted to do here, could you elaborate?

    As for external hard drives, you can't partition them for use as both external storage for games and for use with your Mac or PC. You can use an external hard drive on the Xbox One as a media drive, though.

    If you format an external hard drive for Xbox One games storage, the whole drive is formatted and the file system is changed.
