  1. All data on hard drive erased and games no longer reconize hard drive


    I have a friend who is having trouble with his X-Box 360. He just bought Grand Theft Auto (not sure which number that is), and it was not allowing him to select his internal memory drive. So I taken a look, went to settings, and found all of his data has
    been wiped clean. He tried another game, same result: every time he tries selecting his internal memory drive, it keeps popping up "pleas select drive". He has had this 360 for just over a year now.

    :)

    360 slim hard drive moved to another 360 slim. Not even acknowledging that it's there.

    My 360 slim took a crap, I got a new one and moved my hard drive from my old slim to my new one. I have a lot of saved data on the hard drive and I cannot get it to read or reconize the hard drive at all. I haven't had live for over a year so iv not signed
    in on a profile before I played or saved a game. It's just all on the hard drive. Is there something that I'm missing?

    Black Ops II - Multiplayer freezes! [HELP PLEASE!]

    Have you tried erasing the game data for BLOPS 2 off the hard drive? (Not the save file for SP.)

    Unformatted hdd

    Once a hard drive is coming up as "unformatted" that means that the Xbox 360 can no longer read the data that's on that hard drive.

    You can try to remove the hard drive and place it back in the console and see if it makes any sort of difference. If it doesn't then that means that the data is already gone as there's no way to read data that's coming up are "unformatted" on a hard drive.

    You'd need to format that hard drive in order for it to be readable again. If this happens again, it's likely an issue with the hard drive and it would need to be replaced.

    Hard Drive 'Unformatted'

    Yes formatting a hard drive erases all data. However, it sounds like your data is already gone. You can redownload any games you've purchased digitally, and your profile. But any saves will be lost.

    Moving stuff from one hard drive to another

    If it's still on the old hard drive you could use a USB flash drive to move it and any game saves etc over. I'm not sure doing a data transfer again would be advisable, if you did do a data transfer previously odds are the old data was erased. You would
    need to check that the files are still on the old hard drive.
