Heres how it was:
A) I own a Xbox Arcade Edition (Not the S version) and a 20 GB HDD
B) I Purchased a brand new 250 GB and transfer cable. Which worked perfectly when I loaded it into the primary loading dock at the top of the xbox. The machine recognized it and allowed me to save data and games on it.
C) When I plugged the transfer cable into my new hard drive I was prompted to format the HDD in order to make it xbox ready. Like an idiot I pressed OK.
D) When the process was complete I was left with a 250 GB HDD which was only reading at 16 GB and was unreadable. If the HDD is placed in the primary loading dock at the top of the xbox it won't even show up on the console. If its plugged into the usb ports via the transfer cable it only comes up as USB storage device.
Is there anyone out there who can help me:
A) Make my new 250 GB HDD readable again?
B) Tell me if this is a software issue or a hard ware issue? It seems like a software one.
Please help me out!
