If you are using a new drive then great plug it into your Xbox and you will be prompted to format either so it is compatible for games or compatible for movies, songs etc. Make sure it is formatted in the way that you want but don’t forget if the drive already has something on it then all data will be erased once formatting has commenced on your external drive.
