Hi,

E68: Hard Drive Error - Hard drive not DMA configured: 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. Also this can be caused by a problem with the fans that make them draw too much power, it can also be caused if you have unnecessary accessories attached to the console like an external fan unit. Attempt to remove unnecessary accessories first, and then necessary components such as the hard drive and USB devices. If you have any case mods you may want to investigate those as well.




Regards.

Make sure that all of the pins for the harddrive are lined up properly, and make sure that they aren't bent at all. If that doesn't work, it may just be a faulty drive, in which case you will probably have to replace it(the hard drive).

Maybe you dont't keep ot in a good cooling area. The same thing happened to me. Do this:
Take out your hard drive and let it cool for 5 mins.
Dissconnet all the cables including the controlers.
When your done dissconnet the power cord.
After this is done let the xbox cool for 5-10mins.
Reconnect everything except the hard drive then see if it works. When the xbox is back to normal it is safe to put the hard drive back.

Hello! no need to worry! the E68 error code is one of the more simple things to fix. most of the time it's just simply a hardware fluke. Attached you will find detailed instructions on how to successfully restore your hard drive and eliminate the e68 error code.

How to Fix The E68 Error Code

1 Answer

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.

1 red ring E68


The single red light on the Xbox shows that there is a hardware failure.
The E68 error is linked to a problem with the Xbox 360 Hard drive. Try removing the hard drive from the Xbox and attempt to use the Xbox again.
If the error does not occur when the hard drive is not connected then you will need to replace the hard drive.
If the error still occurs then the console will need to be repaired.
