Try this... go to System and select memory. Then press Y on the "HD" symbol, then X, X, left bumper, right bumper, X, X. This preforms maintenance on your HD including cleaning it's cache. Also try removing all peripherals.

I was watching net flicks and my xbox rebooted and flashed a red ring (bottom right) and it said E68. i shut it off and started it up again and works<did that twice<the unit was alittle hot...


The e68 error on your Xbox 360 is caused by a hard drive/HDD problem. It can be caused by an internal connection error with the hard drive, a general failure of the hard drive, or overheating of the hard drive. Basically, there is quite a large range of things that can cause the Xbox 360 e68 problem, which can make troubleshooting the issue slightly difficult.

To fix the e68 code on your Xbox 360 is to remove the internal hard drive and try playing your console without it. If it then works, then you can be sure that you can permanently fix the problem. If not, then you will have more serious issues on your console that will need to be checked over by Microsoft, as the e68 is generally believed to be related only to your console's hard drive/HDD.

Hope this helps.

E 68 error code.


The e68 error on your Xbox 360 is caused by a hard drive/HDD problem, much like all of the problems in the "e6x" family of error codes on the Xbox 360 platform. It can be caused by an internal connection error with the hard drive, a general failure of the hard drive, or overheating of the hard drive. Basically, there is quite a large range of things that can cause the Xbox 360 e68 problem, which can make troubleshooting the issue slightly difficult.
Step one to fix the e68 code on your Xbox 360 is to remove the internal hard drive and try playing your console without it. If it then works, then you can be sure that you can permanently fix the problem. If not, then you will have more serious issues on your console that will need to be checked over by Microsoft

I just got a 120gig external hard drive with a E68 message on it is it possibal to fix it?


Hi Keith, the E68 error is common and basically there are many causes: internal connection problem, overheating, HD general failure. You should try to disconnect the HD and see if your console works properly. If yes then it's luckily related only to the HD and not affecting your 360 :) If you get the same error also after HD removal, please advise me with few more details and we'll try to get rid of it. Now, as you just bought it, i'm assuming you have warranty so i'd bring it right back to the store and ask for a new one or a refund. Regards, Peter

I have a e68 on my xbox 360 what can i do to fix it


e68 is an easy fix, one that shouldn't even be charged for.
ok, so let me tell how it's going to work, the E68 means that your HDD needs to be updated,
so you have to get to http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/system… ,
and then download the update file, and uncompress it ,
then rip it on a disc or a DVD,
then just set your 360 to Boot to disc from System----> console Settings------> Startup
then put the disc in the 360 , then turn it off,
and attach the Hard Drive
then turn it back on and the 360 will apply the update to the Hard Drive,
and if it didn't work your Hard drive may need to be replaced.

I tried to plug in 20 gig HD for xbox 360 and got the E68 error. Can anyone HELP? Thanks, Marty


Try to unplug the HDD and replug it up a few times. If this doesn't work try the HDD on a different console. If it is still not working the HDD will need to be formatted if that doesn't work it's just done for.
