Sourbucket,

 A lot of folks have had issues with the USB cable. Try using a different USB 3.0 cable and see if the Xbox One will recognize the drive. Obviously, the external hard drive has to be at least 256 GB and using USB 3.0 as well. Let us know your results. Thanks,

Hi there,

Does the drive show when going to Disk management in Windows, usually it will show there, where you should be able to control partitiions and or format the hard drive.

Be aware that this will delete all on the partition/harddrive
