    HDD issues


    Hi got a new 120gb hdd and tranfer cable as well. When i plugged it in I could only use 32gb of it, I checked it on my pc it got 111gb free. I tried 2 formate it but tat option does not appear on the xbox memory storage, device option. I replaced my hdd
    in the 360 with it to see if it work but it comes up with no storage device detected. I cleared the system so there nothing on it now, but wen I check it on storage device the option I have is configure now up to 32 gb (it is seen as configure usb device)
    is there anyway for me to formate so I use the whole 120gb

    :)

    Yeah, it sounds like HDD issues or maybe overheating... since you're getting someone to check the HDD, wait for them to tell you if it's messed up or not. If it isn't the HDD, look into possible overheating issues...

    Is the data transfer cable the official Microsoft cable or some third party cable?

    HDD issues

    It sounds like you may have a third party cable. This is a known issue with those types of cables. Basically what's happened is that your hard drive has been formatted to be used as a flash drive and not as a 360 hard drive as intended. Unfortunately, there
    is no way to reformat it to it's original state.

    Issues with the HDD

    When hardware gets years of usage. They tend to slow down and perform slower then their post to. Like a car that loses it's horsepower due to age.

    It's definitely worth a shot, BERRETTA. Delete the optional install to see if the game runs better. If not, try Photon's suggestion of clearing the cache, then restart your console and try playing again.

    Let us know the results. =) If either of those don't work then we can try something else.
