and it still does not show up?  did you try as I suggest turn off the 360, remove the drive, plug it back in then turn it back on if you still do not see it showing up, I would take the drive back to game stop and exchange.  if it happens again then it is most likely your 360, but it SHOULD still be under the 1 year warranty unless you had it over a year.

Why are we even discussing this?

Take the drive back to GameStop and get a replacement. If you bought a USED drive, don't do that sort of thing. Buy a brand new drive in retail packaging.

did you make sure it is in all the way and I THINK you have to have the system turned off before you can insert it.  or worst case scenario is if you bought it online then it COULD be a fake drive, but if you bought it in a store I just think you have to push it all the way into the system.
