    XBOX PC GAMEPASS: I can't install a game on my USB harddrive


    When in my XBOX app I followed this path: Settings > General > Change where this app installs games by default. I changed the setting to my D external drive, and when I go to install a game, the only option available is my C drive. Whenever I restart my XBOX app the setting changes back to C default.

    XBOX PC GAMEPASS: I can't install a game on my USB harddrive

    Hi and thanks for reaching Microsoft Xbox gamer's community. My name is Josef.

    I'm an Independent Advisor and a Microsoft Xbox user like you.

    Hope you're doing great today despite this DullMrKitten

    Can you double check if the D: drive is already formatted as NTFS?

    I ask this because most of the Xbox PC games has this requirement

    Do it opening File Explorer > my computer > right click on D: drive > properties > next to file system

    -----------

    If everything looks good, try Reinstalling Gaming Services using powershell command

    Press Windows key + X and then select Windows PowerShell (Admin).

    Type or copy / past the following command and press Enter:

    Get-AppxPackage *gamingservices* -allusers | remove-appxpackage -allusers

    Restart the PC and Open the Xbox application.



    A blue notification with the following message is going to appear at the bottom:

    "This app needs an extra component. Gaming Services is needed for playing some games. Administrator approval required. Install"

    Select Install to reinstall Gaming Services, once installed check again

    Stardew Valley - Xbox Cloud Saves

    I have gamepass installed on my PC, but when i try to play it using cloud gaming on the same PC my save is not there, both appear to be running version 1.5.. any ideas?
    Cloud gaming uses a xbox one to run the games, so it can't sync the saves

    What is the Different between Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass

    So what if you install them to a harddrive and your Gamepass expires but you keep your xbox off line.
