Xbox 360 Hard Drive Bollock-o-Rama
« on: November 21, 2014, 02:19:13 PM »
So this morning I received the 120gb HD bought from ebay. Look up on youtube how to transfer data from my old 20gb HD (stop laughing). Seems simple enough.

The thing is the kid on youtube done it wrong. He said connect the new hard disk via the transfer cable to the usb. This is incorrect apparently.

So I do it. No automatic 'would you like to transfer' message. Hmm. I go to storage. Would you like to format this usb storage. Umm, I guess so.

Bang! Mistake. Now my 120 gb hard disk shows up as 31gb usb storage and isn't recognised if I slot it in the top of the 360.

Where do I go from here? Is there some software that can reformat the drive so that I can try the process again?

Help me people, I'm dying out here. I've just bought GTA V too (again, please stop laughing).

My gut instinct would be to try one of those shops that does things like jail breaking iPhones and repairing laptops, mainly because Microsoft will be fuck all use.

Yeah Hank. I've just found this which looks complicated but may be my only hope.

I could of course just spend another £20 on an HD but it's the principle.

I hate to ask the obvious, but have you tried shoving it right up your arse?

That's presently 7(b) on my list of options.

I'm going to get a ps4 at the end of the month.

That's not much help to you, I just like thinking about it.

Go for it.

Unfortunately I'm too busy to justify forking out for a PS4.
