    Could you please first find out whether the program can be installed on the SSD of the laptop itself normally? Since you are installing the application on the external SSD and the problem occurs, I would recommend you to exchange the test to rule out whether it is caused by the fault of the external device or cable. Sorry for any inconvenience it may be caused.

    Finally, the installation was successful. I installed it on another 4TB SSD (WD).

    I enjoy the flight VR mode. It's a pity that the model UX8402ZE limits the memory at 16GB. This should extend to at least 32GB.

  • One common solution requires a restart of the title. Closing and re-opening the program may lose current download progress, but it can be a quick fix to alleviate hang-ups and get back on track.
