I have a 320gb hard drive for my Xbox and when it is inserted it doesn't show on the dashboard for memory devises


In this process your hard drive will be formatted, so back up all files to another hard drive, laptop, or be prepared to lose everything on your hard drive. After you have backed everything up, plug your hard drive into an Xbox 360 then go 'My Xbox/System Settings/Memory.Select 'USB Storage Device/Configure Now' then accept the warning.After the formatting is complete a Performance Warning box will appear, click 'OK.' Now in the 'Storage Devices' screen you should see a new option 'Memory Unit.' This shows that the formatting was successful. Disconnect your hard drive, then connect it to your laptop, load on some media (makes sure the file types are compatible), then reconnect it to your Xbox 360. Your selected media should not appear under 'Portable Device' in the Video/Music/Picture Library.

I have actually had the same problem myself. First you should try removing your Hard drive to see if that is what was causing the problem. If that isn't it then clear the cache by going to: System Settings -> Memory -> Device Options (Press Y while you are highlighting the proper storage device) -> Clear System Cache Try to start the game after that and should it still not work then try to install the game to your Hard Drive by inserting it at the Dashboard, pressing Y to access "Game Details" then "Install Game". If none of this works then you may have a faulty disc drive which you would need to contact Xbox Customer Support about.
