How do i know my hard drive is working properly?

If you are using an external hard drive you should go into settings then memory to format it because it is the safest way of storing data on your external hard drive and if the games or apps you have on it load you are fine.
If you are using the hard drive built into the xbox 360 it should be the same kind of thing. Games load, profiles load all the kind of stuff. but you don't need to format the internal obviously.
One thing you could check would be to check the dates of saves put on the hard drive or updates. To do this just go into settings then memory and go into your hard drive and open any game in hard drive and check the dates and see if they make sense

Sounds like the hard drive will not initialize . This problem is most likely
your hard drive. Try another hard drive . If the problem persist then you have
time out error that will some times trip the 360 to display 3 red lights . First
try another drive . And post the results and I'll advise accordingly.

Your problem is a corrupted hard drive. Your only option really is to buy a new hard drive. If your gamer profiles are on Xbox Live, you will be able to recover them to your new Hard Drive.

Loading Issues w/ Fable 2 After New Downloads

This could be caused by the save file, have you tried to use the game without your old save on? If you have, you may need to contact microsoft live support for more help.

My extra content won't load

I've had the same problem. Delete from the hard drive and re-download. Should work fine after this.

This game(along with several others) has some issues when trying to access the hard drive. Could be missing data in the download file, a corrupt area in the hard drive, etc. Removable hard drives, although convenient, are not the most reliable. Like I said, I had the same issue and this solved my problem. :-)

Xbox 360 Pauses during gameplay

Your xbox was probably heavily overheated before you purchased it, I repair xboxs and have seen this that after about 6 months of getting a repaired Xbox another error will come up. The temperature sensor in the CPU is probably broken, that is why your fan runs hard. your hard drive is fine. as far as the xbox goes.... probably toast.
