That may be an error caused by the harddrive not making good contact with the xbox, could be external or internal problem. IF YOU HAVE WARRANTY DO NOT OPEN THE XBOX OR THAT WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY
remove that hard drive and try to play without it to see if that's tha problem. if it works put it back on and try it again. If thats not the problem try this

E79 is a hard drive problem. It could be a problem with the Hard Drive itself or a problem with the internal connection to the hard drive, Try removing the hard drive and playing without it
