recently my xbox 360 hasn't been detecting my external had drives plugged into them on freestyle they worked yesterday and I can view them in the xboxes normal settings anyone know whats wrong and how I can get them to appear again ?
Tried everything and still nothing. Works perfectly fine though on my computer though and the xbox still detects it just not FSD should I still try and reformat? Also switching usb ports didnt help either :c
It could be that it's the 360 itself thats acting up.
Do you have it jTAGged or RGH'd and Dualbooted?
Otherwise you could install FSD on your internal drive (it's upgradeable without any problem) and place some games there.
It's way faster then USB + it frees up space near your 360 and lets you use the HDD for other things ;p
But those are my two cents and I can't decide for you.
I having the same issue as well! My external hard drive was working fine 2-3 days ago. Now when i connected it to my xbox yesterday it shown as "Unformatted" inside Storage Devices. And XEX Menu and FSD not detect it either. And it is Formatted in FAT32 its a HGST Touro 500GB.
Ok thank you. You're right I have tried connecting with other Xbox 360 as well and the same happens. My Internal HDD its also a 500GB and is full sadly i'm not sure if i can get bigger one. But only thing i don't get if it is corrupted, the same external HDD is still working totally fine on PC. And how i can restore the MBR.
