XBOX ISO playback not working from external USB drives, only internal.
#1
I have a DVD ISO that will not play from my external USB 3.0 drive attached to my XboxOne X.  When I copy the ISO to the internal Xbox drive, it loads fine.  I also assume this is true for BluRay ISO's?  Problem in there is some limit of file size because I have plenty of free space on my internal Xbox drive but trying to copy a large ISO states incorrectly no enough space.

Is there any solution?

Thanks,
BR

Kodi had no access to usb drives on Xbox. Microsoft don't allow it.

 Microsoft won't let Kodi use an external hard drive for media on the Xbox One? I was hoping it was something that would be added in an update. That's disappointing.

Don't make false statement.
If something isn't done yet, it doesn't mean APIs don't allow it.

Do you have evidence to the contrary, or are you just being argumentative?

If you know of a way to get API access to usb drives on the Xbox, I think we'd love to hear it. We are all ears!

You can take o look on VLC-WinRT code, how they did it.
It also working on Xbox, so isn't platform restricted or MS is closing eyes during certification.

Indeed the info I have from the Xbox devs is the API doesn't allow it.

If a way to do it exists that is reliable then they'd love to know about it so it can be implemented like VLC.

About a year ago microsoft didnt allow api access to write into a hard drive, now plenty of apps have access to write into hard drive (torrex) and also you can connect your external hdd to view, copy, and delete files (and it works pretty great just like the pc) check out best player guys, in this app you just connect your external hdd into the console and you watch movies thats what i wanted to do with kodi and i was pretty dissapointed when i found out that you cant connect your externall hdd, because i dont wanna mess with nas servers and all that stuff...
I would recommend to check out this apps to see how do they work.

Vlc its a bad example in comparison with best player it has many problems with playback and also the file manager to view and play the videos is crap.

Links to the source would be more useful.
If I have helped you or increased your knowledge, click the 'thumbs up' button to give thanks :) (People with less than 20 posts won't see the "thumbs up" button.)

I'm getting the impression you might not be a developer.

When did I say I'm?
I'm just many years Windows ecosystem power user and observe since WP7 what apps can and what can't do.

So you know how to do it, but don't believe it will pass certification?
There is bunch of app with USB Storage support in Store, so it's worth a try.
