How to Set Up Your Game Drive for Xbox

A console is basically a computer—and that means you’ll eventually need more storage to expand your game library as your internal storage becomes full. The portable Game Drive for Xbox is the ultra-easy solution.

First Let’s Talk Capacity

Xbox consoles come in standard capacities of 500GB or 1TB, which is enough storage for about 10-20 Xbox One games.1 Perfect for new gamers—but not so perfect for seasoned players who want classic favorites in addition to new releases at their disposal. Which is exactly why we built Game Drive for Xbox. It’s a compact, portable drive with up to 4TB of space for storing 100+ Xbox One games—and up to 8TB for 200+ if you opt for the hub!

That’s intense.

So let’s say you’ve decided to make the leap with this flashy little green drive. Great. Space for a ton of games sits before you. Now what?

Just Plug It In

Game Drive for Xbox doesn’t need a wall adapter and includes a USB 3.0 cable. Simply connect that cable to one of your console’s USB ports (doesn’t matter which one) and Xbox will immediately recognize it and ask how you want to use the drive—as main storage or just additional storage. Go ahead and choose, make a few formatting clicks, and that’s it. You’re set.

Enjoy the Magic of Matching Firmware

We could have just made a game drive and called it good. But we went the extra step and actually partnered with Xbox so that we could engineer a solution with features that make a difference, like matching Xbox firmware. So because your game drive and your console run on the same kind of technology, gameplay is seamless—as if you were playing straight from your console’s internal drive.

Take Your Games Anywhere

Whether you’re headed to cousin Joe’s for the annual holiday get together or just popping over to a friend’s place, Game Drive for Xbox makes it easy to hang out and connect. Simply plug into their console, login to your Xbox Live account, grab a beverage, and game on. For more details how, watch this Inside Gaming with Seagate video.
