You have a messed up xbox! I actually purchased mine like that when I turned it on it woulodn't reconize the hard drive, I sent it back, then got another after 4 xboxes I got a good one. Xbox been having troubles with this since it released the console, best bet is to send in your xbox drive & all!
If the warranty is still valid you should have no problem getting it exchanged. If its invalid, ring 1-800-4-MY-XBOX

On start up,there is a message that pops up,which says that,THERE IS A DISK READ ERROR.What does this means and how do I solve this?


I understand that you are having DISK READ error on startup. This error message may be due to BAD HARD DRIVE or a DEFECTIVE HARD DRIVE.
To do a work around, you can try to use a new IDE cable on the hard and try to boot the system again.

Format error message


If you are trying to format your hard drive, this error means that the hard drive is bad or dying. If the drive is still under warranty, you may exchange it with the manufacturer. Otherwise, you require a new hard drive.

My xbox 360 has one red ring and i dont know if i need a new on or can i fix it


Solution
An error code will appear on the screen as well, which states what component the 360 thinks is faulty.

E67, E68, E79
These could all have something to do with the hard-drive. Try taking the hard-drive out from the 360 and playing without it. If the error message disappears, then your hard-drive is faulty, and you will need to get a replacement. If the error message still appears, then something else is wrong with your 360, and you will need to send in the 360 for repair.

Any other error message is not user-serviceable. You will need to return your console for repair.

Hard Drive Error during system recovery


You need to run a hard drive diagnostic disk in dos,(before windows starts) First check with HP, You can also use a program called HDD Regenerator 1.51. This will check the drive for bad sectors, and then you can try and repair them. This way you might
be able to see some of the data you want. If the sectors that where
repaired had the operating system on them, you should just get a new drive,(if not under warranty) then after you have a new OS installed on the new drive, you can plug in the old drive and see what you can recover.

Hard drive controller again


I don't think you have a hard drive controller fault as such... more like your hard drive is going "Flakey" meaning it is developing "Bad Sectors" IE the magnetic media going bad, this is common occurance.. I think you had better backup any valuable data and get a new hard drive and transfer your "Old" drives contents to your "New" drive. There are many programs that can do this for you.. Just Google it. One could install the New hard drive as a new "Master" and set the old as "slave" install a new operating system on the "new" one and then transfer the data from the "old" drive to the "New" and then ditch the "old" ya be good to go.
