So I finally bit the bullet and bought a 250GB HDD for my Xbox 360 S. I transferred my content and everything went smoothly. But for some reason, when I booted up the console the next day, this happened:
- 20 minutes of staring at the Xbox ball, mocking me by not doing anything for all that time
- Another 5 minutes of staring at the "loading" circles
- Me realizing I was not signed into Xbox LIVE, and in fact did not have a profile on the HDD
- Or anything
- My HDD was unformatted
So I reformatted it and turned off/on the console. The exact same thing happened.
Now when I don't have the HDD in the console, it works fine. SO either the problem is the HDD or the socket. The socket can actually move around when I nudge it. If this isn't normal, it's probably the socket, but my suspicions lie on the hard drive. If you guys can help me, thanks a bunch.
