Xbox Internal Storage corrupt

Bought an Xbox 360 Skylanders bundle for Christmas 2012 and the hard drive is so *** up I can't do anything really. It won't connect to Live at all won't even run an update from USB. Tried formatting and get an error that a device has been removed and it can't continue. It won't let me run from USB either as it doesn't give me an option to install apps to there just defaults to the internal storage. Anyone else had similar issues with the 4GB Xbox?

You answered literally nothing and said nothing "above". The hard drive has 2.8 GB left on it so the space is not the problem. If you read what i said above and the title there is obviously something wrong not that it is full. I need to know if anyone has experienced this and figured a way around it. Would love to use USB storage but it won't let me because apps default to the corrupted internal storage.

Yes I have tried to clear the system cache. I have tried reformatting. Talked to MS support and they came to the conclusion that their was a hardware issue which was pretty obvious before I called them but had to spend 3 hours talking with them. I was hoping someone on here knew of a good way to bypass internal storage so I didn't have to buy a new Xbox or pay MS to repair. The hard drive is really pretty unresponsive to anything you try to do it. It says it deletes stuff but it is still there. It errors out when reformatting. Would love to use USB or anything but it keeps wanting to install apps on the internal storage without giving me an option.
