I've never had an issue with my Original Xbox 360, so never saw the need to upgrade. I still have my 20gb hard drive and just recently wanted to upgrade to a 120gb hard drive. I got the transfer cable and tried transferring everything over and it was a whole ordeal. For a while, it kept saying "No Storage Device Detected" and I had no luck getting it to detect. I got it to detect with it plugged in via the USB transfer cable and the software was auto detected, so I let it transfer everything over to the new hard drive. Everything went fine, so I assumed it was ok. I turned my console off after it was finished, switched my old hard drive for the new one, and turned the system back on. After everything, it still says "No Storage Device Detected", yet I know all of my files and everything is on it. So my question is, what can I do? I've done everything I can and can't think of anything else.
To aid your assistance:
- I bought a used hard drive (Yes, I know, first mistake. If I can't fix this, I'll buy a brand new one)
- This is for the Original Xbox 360 (Not elite, not slim, etc.)
- I formatted the new hard drive using NTFS file system (don't know if that's the right one) on a Windows 7 PC
- I do NOT mind formatting it again for whatever reason you provide (thus losing all of my data)
- The "new" hard drive shows up under System Settings>Storage when plugged in via the Transfer Cable, but not when plugged in the Hard Drive slot (and yes, my old one still works in that slot, so that's not the issue)
Please provide any help that you can and thank you for whatever help you provide. I'm really at my wits end.
