    Xbox One External Hard Drive Problem


    So i Yesterday turned on my Xbox and the external hard drive says it was 100% full but nothing was showing on it in the my games and app menu. I know the hard drive isn't full because i as playing halo 5 earlier and i had 1.3 TB left after a few games i
    turned the Xbox off for a few hours then turned it back on and that's when i stared having the problem. I left it off for the rest of the night turned back on today and the problem is still there. I have tried to format the hard drive but it seems formatting
    doesn't work with the latest update. I am just wondering if anyone has had this problem before or has heard of this happening before and has a solution.

    :)

    Quick Fix? - New Dashboard preview update problem

    Unplug your external hard drive and do a hard reboot. Then when your Xbox is back on the home screen, plug your external hard drive back in. I had that same problem.

    The latest update should have fixed that problem though. Go to Settings and System to see if there is an available update.

    Xbox One External Hard Drive Problem

    Have you tried to carry out a hard reset on the console?

    If not then press and hold the power button on the front of the console for 5-10 seconds once powered down unplug the console for 1-2 minutes then power the console back up without the external drive connected. Once the dashboard comes up plug the drive
    back in and see what happens afterwards

    Memoria esterna non rilevata e il controller non risponde ai comandi [Translation - External memory is not detected and the controller does not respond to commands]

    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.

    Civilization 6 crashing on Xbox series S

    There is a possibility that there is either a connection issue with your external hard drive or somehow the external drive is corrupted. One possible solution is to uninstall the game and then reinstall the game. Try installing the game on only the internal Xbox hard drive to see if that fixes the problem. Also, try launching other games on your external hard drive to see if how those games are functioning normally.
