  1. Hard Disk Drive Unformatted?


    With the recent installment of the latest update on my 360 my 250GB hard drive appeared unformatted. Is there any reason as to why this might happen? I have tried everything I can think of. Blowing in the Drive and in the Xbox. Turning my system off and
    on .Clearing the cache. Deleting the update even. All the same result. Unformatted.

    :)

    Hard Disk Drive

    Hard Disk drive randomly shuts down while playing game, I want to format it again to be safe but don't want to lose all data. I switch usb port and checked connections. Is this normal or can I fix this?

    Hard Disk Drive Unformatted?

    Hi there,

    when this happens it's most like caused a failure of the hard drive itself. When the hard drive fails it will result in the console thinking it needs an update.

    The things you can try are disconnecting and reconnecting the hard drive like mentioned here:

    support.xbox.com/.../add-remove-hard-drive


    If that doesn't help anything the only option left is to try and format the hard drive to see if it will work afterwards. This will remove anything from the hard drive, you should be able to redownload any items you purchased via the download history on
    your account, any items like save games that were only on the hard drive are lost I'm afraid.

    If the hard drive format doesn't bring the hard drive back or if it happens more then once you will need to replace the hard drive. You can request a replacement via
    http://myservice.xbox.com

    Can't load a game.

    Do you have the disk in the drive? Even though a game is downloaded to the hard drive, you still have to have the disk in the drive in order to launch it. The system will spin the disk for a second to verify that it is there, and then everything afterwards
    will run from the hard drive.

    play from hard drive

    Xbox Live disk games haven't been ever been able to play games off of the hard drive after they are installed. The disk must be in the disk drive to play the game. Installing games to the hard drive causes the disk to spin less once it is in the disk drive,
    which causes slower loading times and makes the Xbox quieter.

    --Hope this helps, good luck and happy gaming!

    Playing Call of duty Mw3

    Have you attempted to download the game to your hard drive and play it from there? Even if a disk is scratched or damaged it should let you play from the hard drive as long as the disk is in the drive.
