E68 is the error code for a bad hard drive, im sorry but the hard drive may just be bad and cant be fixed. one thing to try is to clean the metal contact on the bottom of the drive with a q tip and cleaning alcohol. try it in a friends system. Ive don't know how you do this but try to find a way to clear the hard drive of all memory and format it, Ive seen this kit for transferring data from one to another but i don't think that will work on a bad hard drive

System error e 68


E 68 is a hard drive error, try removing the hard drive and turning the system on. If that works, turn off your system and reconnect the hard drive, then turn it back on, if it still works YAY!! If not, you may need a new hard drive....

I PUT A HARD DRIVE 20 GB AND THE CONSOLE TELL ME AN ERROR 68 WATH IS THAT


This means someone took another hard drive off of the console while it was updateing. The only way to keep it from saying that is to put the original hard drive back on that was on there when it was updateing. Ive experimented when I was selling them. And I pulled one hard drive off while it was updating and everytime I put a diffrent hard drive on it I would get that message. So I went throw like 4 hard drives before I found the actual one that was getting updated. After it updated I could put any hard drive back on it and it would work. Hope this helps..

One red ring, erra 68.


What you need to do is try using the console without the hard drive or with a different hard drive, one red ring means a hardware failure, and the error code e68 is in relation to the hard drive. If using the console with a different hard drive, or none at all doesnt work, ensure that the fans are working as they often also cause the e68 error and a single flashing red light.
I hope this helps. Good luck.

E 68


E68 means your hard drive is either not connected properly, or it has failed. Try removing the hard drive from the XBox and see if it boots OK.

If it does boot OK, try putting the hard drive back on and see if it boots.

If it does not boot, you need a new hard drive. But the XBox 360 itself should be OK. You can find a new hard drive at the following page:

2o G hard drive is not working. srceen is showing E 68


This is a hard drive error code. It means that either the drive itself or your connection between the 360 and the drive have something wrong. Have you tried a friends hard drive to see if that one works? You may need a professional to look at your drive.

Red ring of death


i called microsoft, and they said that E 68 with one red flashing light means your hard drive is screwed up. Your 360 will work fine, but when u plug your hard drive in it wont work and youll get the E 68 error message. Call XBOX customer support, and they'll tell you to send it to them and they'll repair it for free. In the meanwhile, buy a memory card and keep playing. Your game saves and other stuff will be lost though. The hard drive takes 3-4 weeks to be repaired.


And no, you do not have to send the Hard drive with a reciept. When you call, they will give a reference number and you must include with the hard drive. They will explain everything when you call them.
