you have a power supply OCP fault. The power supply needs to be replaced or tweaked. There is a variable resistor inside the power supply that needs to be adjusted. Yopu PS3 is tripping the Over Current Protection fault circuit. Common problem
I had the same issue, but with an external HDD. Whenever I booted the Wii with the EHDD in the USB, it would turn on then off. I unplugged the EHDD, worked like it was supposed to. After the Wii went to the main menu, I plugged the EHDD into the USB, and it shut off. Sometimes it would take 20 seconds to shut off, but it did.
By accident, I found the solution. I had a bad power supply. I used a different power supply, and the USB issues went away.
Got any more specifics? like was it a transfer cable or a usb flashdrive? Does it boot up at all? unplug all the cords (wall to box, box to xbox) unplug the hard drive and make sure all the little brass connectors are clean and even spaces apart. Plug it all back in and see if it boots, if still nothing, unplug the hard drive and see if the xbox boots by itself. that's all I can wing at the moment, let me know if that did anything please
You need to create a bootable CD that will delete all of the information on the hard drive permanently. Here's a source for that software: http://www.killdisk.com/downloadfree.htm
It's simple: after you create the bootable disk according to the instructions at the link I provided, load it into your primary optical (CD/DVD) drive and then reboot your computer and when your PC goes through it's Boot sequence it will automatically boot from the CD you created and then you just follow the prompts. NOTE: before you run create the boot disk, you should check your boot sequence in BIOS and make sure that the the primary optical drive is first on the list or else the boot CD won't work.
