GrizzLee Posted January 4, 2022 Share Posted January 4, 2022 (edited) Just recently acquired a Series X a few days ago. I now have 2 XBOX ones and a Series X. (BTW: Going to sell one of the XBOX one machines... anyone want a Halo edition XBOXone? ? ). My constraints (as background info)... 1) I live in an area with slooow internet connection speeds (Slow DSL modem). That's the price I pay for living on large property in the woods. 2) As a result of slow internet, I can't really do online gaming (no biggie to me, save for Halo ? ) 3) I have an Xbox one in my game room and a second Xbox one in my family room. I am going to replace the XBOXone in my game room with the series X and keep the XBOXone in the family room. I have about 7 TB of games spread over a couple of external drives. Because of (1) I transfer games from one drive to another to play in the family room as needed. I am in the middle of playing Red Dead 2. I took my external drive and plugged into my Series X and it stated the game needed an update. A day later, the update was complete. However, I then took the drive to my XBOXone to play in the family room and again it stated that Red Dead 2 needed an update (probably to downgrade the game to play on the one I suspect). As of this note, it was still updating. So I am now 3 days out and still not able to play Read Dead 2 because I moved the drive back and forth (treating it like a game cartridge ? ). Note, I have not tried any other games due to time constraints. So this may be an isolated case. However, this got me to thinking that due to the X/S enhancements on many games, that I might be faced with this time and time again. I have read that one can move the XBOXone drives to the Series X/S seamlessly (possibly needing updates), but regression to the XBOXone appears to be a problem to do what I am trying to do. I realize I'm an outlier here, with 2 Gens of XBOXs and slooooow internet, but it is the eco system I have at the moment. Can anyone confirm that you can move drives back and forth without constant updating between the new and the old... or is this world I am stuck with? I guess I may need to keep two sets of drives, one for each system. A real PITA and a hit to the pocketbook and my time. I didn't realize this was going to be a problem. Or is it? Thanks for any advice. Edited January 4, 2022 by GrizzLee spelling 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
