Hard drive, unformatted

HARD DRIVE READS 'UNFORMATTED'!? The only thing it'll allow me to do is format it. As I do so, it comes up 'there was a problem performing that action' therefor not allowing me to format it. What can I possibly do? 250G Microsoft HD. PLEASE HELP

Try removing the hard drive and then reinserting it.  If it still will not format then the drive has possibly died and you'll need to purchase a new one.

To confirm that it is something wrong with the hard drive see if a friend has one that they can insert into your console to see if theirs works fine.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
