Xbox 360 unformatted hard drive problem

Hello, I'm not really sure if I'm permitted to write-up this here, however I wanted to provide it a try. Today I turned on my xbox choose normal and also downloaded the new update for it. I left to execute something else while it downloaded, but when I came back and it was finimelted, it didn't seem to save me signed in. When I looked at the prodocuments for me to sign in, it shelp 0 prodocuments were tbelow. I likewise checked my storage and also my 250GB just says unformatted. I looked it up and world say that if I try to format it, it will certainly wipe amethod everything. Is there a way to solve it without acquiring rid of all my game saves/etc?


This seems to be an insect in the latest software update. The hard drive shows "Unformatted" randomly. I have had actually this difficulty and also tried to rerelocate my difficult drive from it's situation and connect it to my computer system using a SATA to USB bridge. (NOTE: DO NOT TRY THIS, IT DID NOT WORK AND WILL VOID THE DRIVE'S WARRANTY) I had to initialize the drive but I was unable to repair it (the drive is formatted as FAT/EXFAT and home windows did not seem to acknowledge it as having anything on it. It appears that the Xbox (360 S; mid 2012) deleted every little thing on the drive (though the Xbox was only intended to perform a conserve and also pack first-time operation in Dark Souls I). Sadly you will need to format and also redownfill the prorecords (or buy a brand-new one and also hope a resolve is released)

Hope all goes well.

host down "sync" as soon as starting consingle or download latest update, then update xbox using USB. Or throw xbox ameans and obtain a Xbone :)
