    With

    If nothing works try plugging the drive in to a PC and use disk manager in windows to format the drive. This will take only a few seconds. Once it's done you can attach the drive back to you console again. Unfortunatly, you will need to install/download
    you games again.

    Unless the drive has failed you should be able to use it again, without issues. One of my drives uformatted itself about three years ago, formatted it again and it's still working. You don't nessisarly need to buy a new drive.

    Try performing a hard reset EXACTLY like this. Hold the power button on the console for 8 seconds or until the power shuts down completely.
    Unplug the power cord from the back of the console for 5 minutes.
    Plug the power cord back in and restart the console.
