I have a 1TB WD Elements HD connected to my xbox one.
Ever since I have plugged it in 2 weeks ago, every game that I moved onto the HD seems to freeze every 3-4 mins for between 20-30 seconds. It’s quite frustrating!
Moving the game back to internal resolves the issue.
Has anyone else had this problem or do I possibly have a damaged HD?
dunno if it’s drive problem or a compatibility problem
apparently the WD My Passport X … is optimized for for performance with the Xbox One, where a standard WD Elements isn’t.
A person here said the Passport X out-performs a standard WD Drive.
Thanks for the advice!
It’s shocking if the WD Elements doesn’t work with an Xbox One. I previously used a cheap USB 3.0 HD enclosure for less than £10 and a cheap 500gb Hard Drive in it with gave me no issues at all.
Checking out reviews, a lot of people have been saying the WD Elements works perfectly fine with an XBox one so I’m wondering if mine is actually faulty.
it could be … but to run any diagnostic tests eg. WD Data Lifeguard Diagnostics
you would have to connect / format it back your PC , that’s kinda the only way to tell if there’s any bad sectors or if there’s something wrong
