XBOX360 20g Hard Drive not working?

OK, so i start up my XBOX360 and my profile is not there.
So i got to my system settings, Memory, and my 20g hard drive isn't showing up, its plugged in and everything.
I've tried taking it out and playing the 360 without it. it works fine. Then when i plug my Hard drive back in it still doesn't show up!?
Does anyone know what the problem is?
Or a solution to solve it or fix it?

How do i know my hard drive is working properly?


If you are using an external hard drive you should go into settings then memory to format it because it is the safest way of storing data on your external hard drive and if the games or apps you have on it load you are fine.
If you are using the hard drive built into the xbox 360 it should be the same kind of thing. Games load, profiles load all the kind of stuff. but you don't need to format the internal obviously.
One thing you could check would be to check the dates of saves put on the hard drive or updates. To do this just go into settings then memory and go into your hard drive and open any game in hard drive and check the dates and see if they make sense

My ps3 is saying the hard discs file system is corrupted and will be restored i press x for ok and it says its restoring it restores turns off then comes on and says the same thing can u please help me or...


if it cant restore the drive then you will have to format the hard drive.. you will need the console serial number as it will ask you to enter it to format. You can find the serial number in system settings and to format it go to memory in system settings. Be warned you will lose everything on the hard drive by doping this. Any downloadable content will have to be redownloaded and your profile can be retrieved from xbox live

There isn't a paper jam there is ink in the cartridges, i have selected the printer. when it prints the paper comes out blank


Make sure that the computer has available hard drive space

Printing requires the computer to have a certain amount of available hard drive space to process print jobs and to send them to the printer. Step one: Check the virtual memory settings Virtual memory is the temporary disk space on the hard drive that processes print jobs. It usually requires at least 200 MB of disk space but might require more or less depending on the printer. Insufficient virtual memory might cause the issue. Follow these steps to check and modify the amount of the virtual memory available.
Click Start , right-click My Computer , and then click Properties . Click the Advanced tab. In the Performance section, click Settings . Click the Advanced tab. In the Virtual memory section, click Change . For correct configuration, the Initial size and Maximum size settings must be less than the Space available on the hard drive. If the Space available on the hard drive is less than 200 MB , skip to the next step. Follow the instructions to clear space on the hard drive, and then start these steps over. The Initial size setting is the amount of space reserved for virtual memory on the hard drive. The Initial size setting should be about 200 MB, and greater than or equal to the recommended paging file size shown in the lower section of the dialog box. The Maximum size setting can be any number greater than the Initial size setting, but it should be at least twice the Initial size setting. Change the settings as necessary to conform to the information in this step. Click Set , and then click OK . Try printing again. If these steps resolved the issue , there is no need to continue troubleshooting. If the issue persists , see the next step
Step two: Run Disk Cleanup to remove temporary files Follow these steps to run Disk Cleanup. Click Start , click Programs , click Accessories , click System Tools , and then click Disk Cleanup . Disk Cleanup prompts you to select a drive to clean. Select the hard drive, and then click OK . Disk Cleanup analyzes the hard drive and presents a report. Select the following items from the report: Temporary Internet Files Downloaded Program Files Recycle Bin Temporary Files Click OK . If these steps resolved the issue , there is no need to continue troubleshooting. If the issue persists , see the next step. Step three: Remove unnecessary software programs Follow these steps to remove unnecessary software programs. Click Start , click Settings , click Control Panel , and then click Add/Remove Programs . Select a software program to remove, and then click Add/Remove . Repeat these steps for all software programs you want to remove. If you remove large software programs, run Scan Disk and Defrag on the hard disk drive. Look for these options in the System Tools section of Accessories

Virtual memory


Your hard drive is getting to full for it to be used as virtual memory
When normal memory gets used up windows uses the hard drive as memory ans if insufficient room on hard drive is not available you get this message.
Solution.
1) delete programs from hard drive to create more space
2) Install new hard drive and transfer programs to it. creating more room on C drive
3) If hard drive is already partitioned and 2nd partition has a lot of free space transfer Virtual over to it.

Go to Start / Control panel Open The System folder go to "Advanced" "performance settings"
Then to "Advanced " Click on change and set Virtual memory to new disk.
Set maximum and minimum the same at 3 times the amount of normal memory you ave
