Console can't detect hard drive

Hello.  My name is Brad.  I have a xbox 360 with a hard drive attached to it.  The problem is that my console can't detect the hard drive attached to it.   I have the old 1st generation 360 with a 20GB hard drive that just says HDD on it.  The console itself is working.  I can see the dashboard on the screen and I could navigate through the different menus.  Its just the hard drive thats giving me the problem.  What do u think is wrong?  Is it the console or the hard drive itself?  Please help.

Hey OP, the easiest way to narrow down the issue would be to try the drive on a different console. Does a friend have one you can test the HDD on?

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
