    Xbox 360 S hard drive isn't recognised and included content isn't available


    Recently I purchased a 250 GB Xbox 360 S Gears of War Edition (this model specifically I believe https://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-Gears-Limited-Console-Bundle/dp/B0050SYZCQ ) used and at first glance everything seemed to work properly. But then I noticed that the hard drive wasn't being recognised by the console, but upon further investigation the hard drive wasn't malfunctioning. In fact it seems to be working fine, I was even able to open it in my computer and format it to exFAT and MBR, but the Xbox still didn't recognise it. I even left it unformatted, it still wouldn't work. And yes, I did try cleaning the headers, it didn't help either. So what am I supposed to do, and is there any way to get back the original GoW promotional content?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    :)

    Hello, first it's a pleasure to be able to help you today.

    My name is welcome to the community.

    Hello MosesMead, without a deeper and technical analysis in this case, it is difficult to know why it is not being recognized.

    Often the HD you're trying to install on Xbox isn't original, and this can cause your Xbox to not recognize the HD.

    Another factor to consider may be some kind of miscommunication in the internal connection between the console and the HD.

    If it is an old equipment that has already been discontinued, the ideal would be to send the console for some specialized technical assistance to investigate the situation.

    Well that would.be why

    Xbox HDDs aren't meant tk be opened or attached to computers

    Also by formatting you forfeit

    Ithe bc emulator and any chance your hdd will ever be recognized as an official hdd

    You just made a very very expensive 250gig USB drive

    If it's used its most likely would-be used codes already

    You should've addressed the hdd issue with the seller

    Now because you formatted it irreparably yourself it may not be returnable

    Once the codes are redeemed if you didn't get a disk it most likely were codes which the original owner would own now and no it's not transferable

    And there is no way to restore an official hdd once you formatted it

    It was never designed to be accessed by the computer or any device it's an anti cheat measure used by all consoles

    There isn't an official 60gb hard drive for the 360s,only 250gb or 320 gb so that is probably the problem.

    [/quote]

    Yes there is. It's available on the original fat xbox 360.

    [/quote]

    Not for the S, the Slim console.

    For that one the only official hard drives are 250GB and 320GB.

    Call of duty ghost will not install on xbox 360

    Where did you purchase the hard drive? Is it an official Xbox 360 hard drive? How old is it? There are several possibilities as to why the drive isn't working including that fact that it may be dying on you.

    Simpsons hit and run not working on Xbox 360

    Hi,

    Do you have any other original Xbox games for your Xbox 360? And, more importantly, do these work?

    There are two main reasons why your game isn't working.

    1. Your Xbox 360's hard drive isn't official. Only official Xbox 360 hard drives will run original BC Xbox games on an Xbox 360.
    2. There is something wrong with the disc.
    Around 90% of the time this question has been asked on these forums over the years, it's been that the hard drive isn't official. Only the official hard drive contains the correct software configuration to play original Xbox games. Due to the age of the Xbox 360 hardware, sourcing a working original hard drive now may be difficult, with the official working HDD from the original beige Xbox 360 being the most difficult to find.

    You'll need a second hand drive, 'new' drives won't work.

    Don't be fooled by the system settings on the Xbox 360 stating 'Microsoft' next to the hard drive. All drives say this, including the third party drives.
