    Fix

    Fix:
    Step 1: Connect the drive to a powered on computer.
    Step 2 NV*: Get a recovery program.
    Step 2 V**: Drive not recognized: Stop reading this, and get help with the drive. We will now assume no problems came into play.
    Step 3: Run the recovery program.
    Step 4 NV: Recover the files.
    Step 4 V: Files aren't there: Stop reading this, and get help with the drive. We will now assume no problems came into play.
    Step 5: Reconnect the drive to the 360.
    Step 6 NV: Use the drive.
    Step 6 V: It doesn't work: Stop reading this, and get help with the drive.
    * NV= No Variable.
    ** V= Variable.
    A variable is something that can go wrong.
    Hope this helps.
