    Exclamation XBOX One External Storage Device Converter

    Neat PC Utility in advance of big June XB1 Update

    Coming in June is major Xbox One dashboard update, and with it comes the feature of 'External Storage' but the drives are reformatted for XB1 use only, with this utility you can switch back and forth.


    One problem with the upcoming XB1 external storage feature is that it reformats your USB HDD to its own format system.

    With this cool new PC utility you can switch your drive back to access the stored data on your PC and switch to back to XBOX mode.

    XBOX One External Storage Device Converter
    Version 1.0
    Angerwound - angerwound @ gmail . com

    Overview:

    This application will make a hard drive used for XBOX One External Storage (released in the June System Update); recognizable to a PC for read/write of the data.

    Note:

    This application requires Administrator privileges on execution otherwise it may state "No storage devices found".

    Usage:

    1. Plug in your XBOX One external storage device into your PC after it has been formatted for use on your console.
    2. Open the application and choose "SCAN".
    3. Your device should be listed. Right click and choose "Enable PC Mode".
    4. Choose scan again; and you should see that your device is now in PC Mode.
    5. Disconnect/Reconnect your drive and Windows should now mount the drive allowing you to read/write the files stored by the console. You could also do a refresh in Disk Management instead of disconnect/reconnect.

    When you are ready to return the device to your console:

    1. Open the application and do a scan.
    2. Choose your device, right click and "Enable XBOX Mode".

    **This needs to be done before your console will recognize the drive. If you forget to do this; your console will ask to reformat it (losing all your data).
    *WARNING*

    This application scans and makes modifications to the MBR of the drive. I take no responsibility for any damage done to the device or loss of data caused by utilizing this application.
    This has been tested on only a handful of drives; so there could be issues. Use at your own risk.
    Enjoy!

    Its obvious that Xbone would use custom filesystem, but Wii U also do that of course.

    That doesen't matter. Whats matter is that you get loads of extra space which is the point in the first place.

    Or is it like Wii U which can use any cheap PC HD/SSD drive?
    As far as I know it will use normal ones just reformat, but microsoft is planning on launching their own brand.

    From what Microsoft as said you can use both of the Xbox ones usb's for storage, so there's no fear of you ever running out of space

    Is this real? This mode switching sounds really weird. Also if the PC sees such a HDD as unformatted/need to reformat, ok. But if the console can't detect the wrong mode and tell you about it, that's just plain wrong.

    Well, it's still better than Sony's approach on storage.

    This is just so it can be read on the pc after being formatted on the xb1. sounds like some think this is a offical m$ software and maybe the picture of the dongle is confusing people...
