Hey mate, sounds like you'll want to format the drive. I suggest backing up your files on a USB thumb drive configured for Xbox 360 first, though. Once you've backed up those files, go to 'Memory,' highlight your device, and then press (Y). You should see the option to format the drive.

In that case, I'm afraid the HDD will need to be replaced. Before purchasing, though, it wouldn't hurt to try a friend's HDD on your console, just to see if the issue comes back (which it shouldn't).

@EDG, yes, that would certainly be a sound troubleshooting step in this situation. For some reason I thought the OP said they had tried that--good catch.

When was it purchased, and was it purchased new? All accessories purchased new come with a 90-day warranty (unless they're purchased with a new console, in which case they have a one-year warranty).

You can contact Microsoft about a repair for the HDD by calling 800-4MY-XBOX.
