Storage device not found

My xbox 360 elite was knocked over while running, now the memory is gone.
If I try to create a new profile I get: "storage device not found"
I've tried turning it off and then back on, same thing. Now what do I do?

    Thanks, but I just tried it and still get the same thing.
    "no profiles found"
    "xbox 360 needs a storage device to create profile"
    And I could feel that the HDD connected. Any other ideas?
    When our xbox tipped over it was on soft carpet, but it was running.

    Thanks!

    I bought a brand new xbox 360 and the first time I am starting it, it gives me that I need to create a games profile for it.

    I have the same problem. Just running around in Halo 3, all of a sudden frozen. I turn it off and turn it back on to solve it, but low and behold, it can't find my HDD. What sucks even more is that I have a 120GB HDD.

    No other ideas on how to fix the HDD but you could buy a memory card. I just checked ebay and you can get a new one for 12.99 on the buy it now auctions.

SOURCE: Xbox 360 deleting profiles and has no storage device

This sound like your hard drive took a ****. But before we count out the Hard drive your BIOS battery may have just died. If your warrenty is still vallid then maybe XBOX can help but if it is out then try replaceing the BIOS battery first. This would be the cheapest way. If you are uncertain what the bios battery looks like it is a flat battery that is about the size of a quarter. After you have replaced the battery and there is still no change then the next thing I would recomend is replaceing you hard drive.

Try to clear your system of the most recent patch:
"Solution 6: Delete and then re-download system updates
To delete and then re-download the system updates, follow these steps.
Note These steps delete system updates that are installed on your Xbox console.
  1. Press the Guide button and then select Xbox Home.
  2. Select settings and then System.
  3. Select Storage.
  4. Highlight your storage device (but do not press A to select it).
  5. Press the following buttons in the following order:
    1. Left bumper
    2. Right bumper
    3. X button
    4. Left bumper
    5. Right bumper
    6. X button
  6. On the Delete System Update screen, select Yes.
  7. After your Xbox console restarts, select OK to download and install the system update.
  8. After the system update is installed, re-download your Xbox Live profile and try to sign in to Xbox Live."

You may also be out of hard drive space if you're using a 4gb internal model Xbox 360. If you haven't already, find yourself a compatible USB thumb drive to insert, format and use as added memory.

New Xbox 360 Arcade, Memory Problem


Hi,

go into system settings, memory, and see if it detects the device/storage. the drive may need Formatting.
alternatively try a Memory Card Unit.
On ocassions the 360 may have to update from the gamedisk.
Follow any onscreen Prompts.

Wierd problem


With the 360 turned off try disconnecting the Hard Drive and your memory card, then re-connect them and reboot.
If it is still not loading try booting to the dashboard and go to the far right blade and click on "Memory", then "Gamer Profiles". If any are labeled "Corrupt Profile", delete it. Then run the recovery tool "Recover Gamertag".
