PLEASE HELP: Xbox 360 Slim Internal Hard Drive (250g) Unformatted?

Hello

So Christmas was yesterday and I got an internal HD for my xbox 360 slim. It worked fine all day! I downloaded so much to it in one day. Woke up this morning, works fine, go for a jog, come back, and all the sudden my xbox is SUPER slow! The logo screen animates forever and then it would have problems signing me in. I noticed all of the DLC for games that i had bought was just gone. I went into storage and it took like a full 30 seconds till it unfroze and showed me my storage devices. All was fine but the HD. It still had MICROSOFT on the bottom corner like usual but at the top it said UNFORMATTED. I figured it was a simple fix but after doing a hell of a lot of research nothing I tried seemed to fix it. I already attempted turning it off for 10 minutes, I already attempted turning it off and unplugging it, and my last resource is you guys! I have already heard that I could send it in to get it repaired but I would rather an alternative. "Buying a new one" is not something I want to do, and formatting it will erase everything on it. WHAT IS GOING ON? PLEASE HELP ME! GRRR!

Thank you and PLEASE help me with this.

I don't understand. What network? its all in the hard drive. I figured everything i bought would be free after deleting it (which it was) so i formatted it. It was fine for the whole day then all of the sudden it's UNFORMATTED again!!?? What network is associated with a hard drive?
