It sounds like a major Technical defect with the HDD that could happen on old HDD's. How long have you had the HDD for? If it's new, you should be able to take it back to the retailer and request a replacement. If not, check to see if it is still under the Microsoft warrenty. If it is, contact xbox support and they will ask you to send it to them for repair (unfortunately). Make sure you don't move them about too much either - they're traditional HDD's, not SSD's that microsoft use with the 360. However, if it isn't covered at all (i.e. it's a very old drive) you may have to take the plunge and get a new HDD.
I know, it hurts, but at least it isn't the RROD.
