    Xbox 360 Hard Drive suddenly vanished


    I ordered a 320 GB Hard Drive to get extra memory for my 4GB Xbox 360 S and it worked great with no problem. After a system update I checked the Sleeping Dogs download and it told me I had no memory to download it. I thought that was very strange so I went
    to check what memory units I had. I only had the flash drive in the Xbox and cloud storage. I tried turning off the Xbox and putting the hard back in and out and that didn't work after several tries. I received no system errors or anything similar to that.
    I currently unable to play any of my favorite games and have probably lost all progress in them.(GTA V, Payday 2, Splinter Cell Blacklist).

    :)

  5. Hey there

    Welcome to the forums

    .

    As stared, allot of people are having this issue, however I would like to try something that worked with a friend last night with a similar problem.

    .

    I want you to try and Clear the system Coach. You can do this by going into your storage and selecting or hovering above the storage devices, then press Y. This will bring up some options, from them options you should see Clear Systen Coach. This will de
    bug the storages.

    .

    I know that this could be a long shot, but this worked with the problem people had with security proofs. After you have cleard system coach. If it prompts you with the update. Try againand see what your results are.

    .

    I hope this works, please post back your results

    Regards,

  7. Might I ask where you ordered this drive from? Most online marketplaces are inundated with counterfeit HDDs. If you paid less than $130 USD for the drive it is most likely a fake. The cheaper the drive the more likely it being fake is.

  9. Since it cost less than half the MSRP yeah I'd say it's more than likely a fake. The fake HDDs tend to react the way you're describing after every system update.
