360 slim 250gb hdd being prompted to format

I have a 360 slim 4gb xbox, I just bought a second hand 250gb hdd that looks original and shows the Microsoft label on the screen under storage devices. It doesn't show the size of the hdd and "format" is the only option for that device. It goes through the formatting process after entering the console serial number however once complete it goes straight back to the storage devices screen showing the device is unformatted.

Have you tried to remove and then re install the hard drive?  Did you buy the HDD from a store? It may be bad, maybe not.  Check this link for further info: support.xbox.com/.../hard-drive

Hope it helps
