Either you cpu is over heating or you need a new disk drive, you could fix these problems yourself, but it can be complicated, time consuming, and risky. But if you want to fix it your self just look up how to fix it on google and you should be able to find some reliable instructions. i would recommend calling xbox and seeing if they can help you.

How to fix XBOX 360 error message "A required storage device has been removed." even when NO disk is init


Perhaps only one of the two sticks does not work anymore, Or is not inserted correct. The Box must be missing a storage device. It is not saying I miss a hard drive.

Error 40a3-0000-3080-0502-8007-045d


I got this from the Xbox support site for your error code.

Error Code xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-8007-045D
A storage device (such as a memory unit or hard drive) was not found during the software update. Follow these steps:
  1. Turn off your console.
  2. Remove all console storage devices, including any USB flash drives, external hard drives or the internal hard drive on the Xbox 360 E console or Xbox 360 S console. Learn how to remove the hard drive.
  3. Add your primary storage device, for example, the hard drive.
  4. Turn on the console
  5. Try updating the console again.
Here's the website if you wish to peruse it further.

Error: reinsert memory unit


I notice no one properly read the question.
The user asking the question specifies that it still plays games.
It's not playing DVD therefore it's not a laser issue. I post this because I have the same problem - the same error (which states please reinsert memory device) comes up when attempting to PLAY DVD. however the Xbox will STILL PLAY GAMES.
the Xbox has never been connected to the Internet and still currently has no connection. Anyone have an actual solution?

Storage device not found


Saving a game requires you to have a Hard drive or memory card did you purchase the premium edition xbox 360? you can look on the outside of the xbox 360 box it will give the specs and what came with the system. If the hard drive is not on the list then you will need to buy one the xbox doesn't come with any internal memory like the systems in the past have. you will need to purchase a HD or a memory card. If you have the premium edition let me know ill instruct on how to set it up.
