I had the same problem, Fallout 3 gave me an unreadable disc error the first time I tried it, then an E68 error when I rebooted. I called msft, they agreed to replace the hdd since it was under warranty.

Since I was SOL with my savegames anyway, I decided to try a couple solutions I found online. The first, simply unplugging and replugging the hard drive had no effect. Doing the same with all the cables had no effect.

Here was the solution that worked for me (so far, anyway):
1) Power down the 360
2) Insert the HDD.
3) Remove the video cable
4) Power on the 360
5) Insert the video cable after a few seconds.
6) Pray for a proper startup
7) Repeat 3-6 until it finally starts up.

It didn't work the first time I tried it, but it's been rock solid since then. I've since backed up all my savegames and gamer profile (which had become corrupted) onto a memory unit I bought used at a Play 'n' Trade. To clear a corrupt profile, just delete it and recover the gamertag. DON'T delete your savegames, and you should be fine.

I'm playing on the 360 with the drive and memory unit both plugged in at the moment, but I'll probably pack up the HDD and ship it out on Monday morning once the post office opens. It's covered under warranty and MS is willing to replace it, so why I figure I might as well get a new HDD. However, if yours isn't (mine was at the 10 1/2 month point), this might work for you.

Microsoft makes it virtually impossible to fix one of their hard drives and you probably won't find anybody out in the tech world who would touch it with a 10 foot pole. You can purchase a used unit for around $50 on eBay and if the drive your replacing isn't bricked, purchase a cheap 360 file transfer kit and migrate your old files to the new drive. Don't worry about any of your Achievements being lost, those are stored on Microsoft servers

sounds like you need a new hardrive, i would reccomend getting a replacement drive and then hooking up the dead/dying hardrive up as slave to recover what you can, disabling S.M.A.R.T might get you to a situation where you can get what you need and then bin the drive

Sony NW-A1000 will not play,


If you get the spinning disc error on your sony nw a1000 it means the hardrive is knackerd.
The hardrive in the sony NW A1000 is a segate ST1.2 6gb and these can be bought off ebay for around £8. If you can't find a 6gb one you can fit an 8gb hardrive BUT your NW A1000 will only use 6gb of it.

If you search on the internet you can find instructions on how to remove the back cover of your NW A1000 which is very easy to do! You then unplug the hardrive (be very careful!) and replace it with the new seagate hardrive. Turn the NW A1000 on and go to the home menu, select "settings", then select "intialize disc" and it will format your new hardrive so that it can work with NW A1000.

Seagate external hardrive


Try to plug it into more than 1 computer other than your PC. If it works, then the problem is the interface between the hard drive and your computer and if it really doesn't work, you're solution is have it recover by data recovery experts. Here are a few things you need to keep in mind, on taking your first steps in such a situation: Do not open the hard disk and try to repair it on your own. If you're data is really, very valuable, don't use automatic data recovery tools. Before you bring it, wrap the defective units in anti-static envelope if possible, bubble wrap it, and seal package securely. You also had an option to recover it on your own by using known data recovery software but it's risky compared if you bring it to a data recovery experts. If the problem is within the mechanical parts of a hard drive, there's a possibility that you will not attain a 98% chance of recovery if you do it on your own.

My pc won't work!


Assuming you get 2 beeps on boot up, take the side off your pc and see if the whirring sound is coming from your hardrive, if so you may have a damaged sector on your hardrive where the boot sector is. If you have a Windows XP disc come back here, if not you need to take your hardrive to a friends pc and set your hardrive as the slave drive before connecting up. When booted up go to My computer and right click on your hard drive (could be 'D' drive or 'E' or 'F')depending on other pc. Go down to properties then tools tab and click error checking and let the system check for errors and automatically repair them. Your rating is importanat
