    Can someone reccomend me a good external hard drive?

    Do not get Seagate they are Garbage. Had a few die this year. Get a WD Portable (not the elements).

    Hard Drive Reliability Update - Sep 2014

    For hard drives, using a tool likeiometerorHD Tune(both with free versions) can help perform a burn-in test. Use one of these to root-out any rapidly-failing drives before committing important data to them.

    Clicking sound in hard drive.

    That sound usually means a hard drive is starting to fail and is having to do retries.

  6. Are you set to save games to the cloud storage?

    If not, try the steps below and let me know how you get on.

    1) First of try removing the hard drive to make sure there is no damage to the unit, when fitting the hard drive back ensure the connection is solid. Check the link if your unsure on how to do this:

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

    2) Then perform a format, if there is any data left on the drive make sure to back it up first so you can restore it after the format. Check this link and scroll down to "Format a storage device" for the correct way to do this:

    support.xbox.com/.../storage

    Failing Hard Drive?

    Hey mate,

    3hrs is quite normal for an install mate, its long but they can sometimes take ages depending on the size of the game. This is being looked into, so hopefully will get fixed in an update in the future.

    When installing from disc, i've been told that if you disconnect from live, it can go through quicker. Go into settings, then into network and hit "Go offline". Once its offline, install the game. It should go WAY faster :)

    Cheers

    Xbox 360 slim corrupting files?

    Hi,

    Simple answer, your hard drive is failing. Fix? Buy a new hard drive or use an external hard drive. The Xbox 360 supports external hard drives up to 2 TB.

    Hard drives die and before they do, they generally exhibit, disk read errors, corrupted files none working games. Hard disk drives are mechanical with moving parts, its it not if they fail its a matter of when.
