Yeah do it if you are inserting a new HDD , if you are on the latest dashboard then you may have to enter the console serial number which is located at the back of xbox in order to format the HDD :)

How to connect an extenal hard drive to my Xbox?


Get an external hard drive with a USB 2.0 connection. You need this connection to connect the drive to the console. Most recently manufactured hard drives
should have this type of USB adapter included. Format the hard drive to read FAT32 files. Using a Windows PC, create an FAT32 partition on the drive and format the volume. You'll need a program like
Partition Magic to do this. Load all the content you want from your PC onto the external drive. This should consist of photo files, MP3s and any other files that can be read on the Xbox
hard drive. Remove the external hard drive from your PC. Plug it into your Xbox 360 console through the USB port. go to the Media menu on your Xbox screen. Select "Portable Device" from the menu. All the readable files saved on the external drive should be available to
read on your Xbox 360 I am also adding a video//check it out if doubt persists.. vote for me...

When I try to save on my 60gb hard drive it can't save.


This sounds like the hard drive is either permanently damaged or is not seated correctly in the Xbox. Please try the following to see if we can fix your problem.

1. Turn the Xbox off.
2. Remove the hard drive.
3. Turn the Xbox on.
4. Turn the Xbox off
5. Refit the hard drive.
6. Turn the Xbox back on.

See if this fixes it. If it does not then you may need to use the Xbox own format utility to try and recover the drive. If this does not work then it looks like your hard drive may need replacing.

Hope this helps

It has an error e 74


E74 means a hardware malfunction, might be due to a bad memory storage deive attached to the Xbox 360 which is the hard drive (HDD). Steps to do:

• turn of the console and remove the HDD
• restart the console without HDD
• if it works without the E74 error, the HDD is bad and needs replacement
• if still having the same error even without the HDD, it's is an internal hardware failure inside the sytem already

If all else fails, please contact Microsoft Xbox Support for it ti be repaired. Hope this helps.. Cheers!

Can not format xbox 360 console


Well, just to make sure you understand, after you format your Xbox 360 Hard Drive, all your data that was on the hard drive will be lost and cannot be recovered (like Hexic HD, Gamerpics, etc...) make sure that you really would want to do this before you continue, okay?

In formatting your Xbox 360 Hard Drive, follow these steps:
1. Turn on your Xbox 360 console without any disc in the disc tray.
2. In the System section of the Xbox 360 Dashboard, select Memory to view the Storage Devices area.
3. In the Storage Devices area, select Hard Drive then press the Y button on your Xbox 360 controller or on the remote control.
4. In the Device Options area, select Format. You receive the message:
This will delete all content on this device. Do you want to continue?
5. To format your Xbox 360 Hard Drive, select Yes.

If you encounter any problem with this, I would strongly suggest that you contact phone support of xbox for the Hardware department at the following phone numbers:

Toll free: (800) 4MY-XBOX
Direct dial: (425) 635-7180
Hearing impaired (TDD device): (866) 740-9269 or (425) 635-7102

Hours of operation
Phone assistance is available seven days a week.
9:00 A.M. to 1:00 A.M. Eastern Time
6:00 A.M. to 10:00 P.M. Pacific Time


Hope this helps! :)

Mac drive not reading on pc


There is a software called macopener that let's you read mac formatted drives with a PC.
If that fails, and If the hdd is in device manager, than at least you can use carving tools like photorec to pull your files out, even if the filesystem is corrupt. If you want somebody else to do it for you you can check Data Recovery NYC. Otherwise http://hddguru.com/ is a great source for tools and knowledge on how to do it yoruself.
