360s and hard drive issue

Friend of min thought it woudl work fine to plug my 320gb hdd into a usb to sata adaptor and connect it to the console, format it as the 32 GB external storage in hopes of transfering the content to the new drive that way. of course it didnt work. not console will not recognise the drive is there at all when inserted in the proper location in the console.

 

any way of recovering this drive to be used with the console or has it been turned into a hard drive ill have to use in a PC?

Sorry, but you've essentially destroyed your hard drive using it with a USB port like that.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Hi there,

-

I'm afraid, that doing it like this will have transformed your hdd to be recognized as usb device, and there is no way to restore it in a way it can be used again as hdd for the xbox console, the files are likely to be lost.

Sorry
