heh, seems that the system management only got me so far. I got it to initalize the disk and it appeared as a local disk on windows, but it needed to be formatted. I attempted to format but windows locked up and shut down. I've tried everything down to seagate's seatools dos prompt drive recovery software. It failed on every sector upon trying to reformat. I thought the hdd was corrupted, but i found out otherwise
I reinstalled it into my xbox and booted up fine: no problems. Backed up apps, music, and games are still there untouched.
it sounds like when u removed the drive from the xbox, you didn't unlock the drive again, hence the failure messages when tryin to do things to it.
