resetting HDD


Active Member
hello all.

is there any way to reset the HDD? its looking more and more like the reason for my xbox occassionally crashing is due to the HDD as without it everything, so far, has been fine.
other then resetting it, its looking like a trip to HMV to have it replaced.:(

Hi mate to do a hdd maintenance

• Go to the Xbox Dashboard, select the System Blade, and select Memory.
• Highlight the HD symbol and press Y.
• Press X, X, Left Bumper, Right Bumper, X, X
after you have done this you have to download all the updates for the games you have.
auto updates when you insert the game.
ps dont wory you dont lose any game scores hope this helps

cheers for that matey.
found out today after trying a different game with the HDD attached that it no longer crashes.
had a good look at the disc of the game it was crashing with and low and behold theres a couple of scratches on it.

gonna get the game exchanged tomorrow.
