E68: Hard Drive Error... It could be a problem with the Hard Drive itself or a problem with the internal connection to the hard drive, Try removing the hard drive and playing without it, This can also be caused by a Hard Drive Eprom Error. Some also believe this might be caused by a problem with the fans.

If this doesnt solve the problem, then contact xbox customer support.

E68


The e68 error can mean a bunch of different things on an Xbox 360.

I have personally had this error and I had to turn the unit off, unplug it, disconnect the HDD, reconnect the HDD, plug it back in and power it on.

Fixed it like a champ.

Here's some useful websites that contain information on the e68 error:

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.

The xbox360elite the red light flashes and e68 comes up on the screen with different language on the tv screen is also showing.


E68 means that you have a bad hard drive. Take out your hard drive and turn the unit on to confirm. Once this is done just buy a new hard drive and your good to go! Or now Microsoft just released where you can use a Flash drive :]

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.

My x-box 360 keeps saying e68 whenever i turn it on, What is e68 and how can i fix it


This is a hard drive error, take off your hard drive and see if you can play a game without it,turn your console off re-attatch the unit and see how you get on, if this does not work it is either a problem with the hard drive or the port it plugs into.
Let me know if this helps.

E68: Hard Drive Error... It could be a problem with the Hard Drive itself or a problem with the internal connection to the hard drive, Try removing the hard drive and playing without it, This can also be caused by a Hard Drive Eprom Error. Some also believe this might be caused by a problem with the fans. This error will normally require you to send the unit in for repair, due to the fact that, this is a basic internal connection breakdown.(cold solder break).The only know remedy to this issue, if you are not considering sending it in, is to locate all the solder breaks on the main board and hard drive connections bay,a nd re-solder all the bad connections you can find. Check the fans for there operational value as well.

Sorry to say you got a bad hard  drive. Call MS or take the system back to walmart for a new 1 because I dont think they will give you a new hard drive. Who knows they might, call and ask!
