Your hard drive has died. You must replace it. Get any size SATA 2.5" notebook hard drive replacement and install it. I have seen this issue plenty of times. Usually on the old 40GB systems.

Hello i have problem, i install my ffxi to HDD xbox360


Hi! Basically, not all Xbox 360 games are support by this "install" feature. This install feature has started around mid 2009 and thus games developed during that time and so on were theonly games capable of being installed into the Xbox 360 Console's harddrive.

Iturn on it says cannot start the correct Hard disk was not found


Open up your ps3 on the right site with a small flat screw driver.
Turn out the blue screw with a small cross screw driver, slide the hard drive to the left and pull it to warts of you, note it is a 2'5 inch sata notebook harddrive.
Hook it up to a pc or mac to run a diagnostic check on it to see if it is crashed, by the way you're able to tell by the sound it makes if it crashed.

Red light blinking on front of xbox 360


How many red lights flashed? One, or three?

One means that your harddrive isn't seated correctly.
Three means that your console is more or less screwed, and needs to be repaired by Microsoft.

Bought a new hard drive for the xbox 360 ,and after running the upgrade all I get when I turn it on is a system error and a red light flashing on the console


Take a look at the screen you should find a number for the error code there like E80 or E79.
If it is E80 this means that the update went wrong and that the consoles kernel wasnt flashed completely.
This can often be fixed with an NXE update recovery disc, search for it on Google, you can download it from Xbox.com.

If you are getting an error like E67, E68 ,E69, E79 or something similar it will be harddrive related very likely, disconnect the harddrive and try to power the console if the problem is gone get a harddrive replacement, call Xbox Support they will take care of that...

If you should be getting a different error code take a look at this error code list this will tell you whats causing this certain error and how it can be fixed: http://xbox-experts.com/e/errorcodes.php

I hope this helps.

Kind Regards,

"can not start. correct hard disk not found" screen message


well you may have a bad connection at the SATA port. this happens alot cuz of the heat generated by the CELL CPU (adjacent to the SATA PORT) . either this or your harddrive has failed
