    Try following this tutorial here: https://digiex.net/guides-reviews/c...box-360-how-flash-your-hddss-bin-windows.html and using the 120gb security sector found here: https://digiex.net/downloads/downlo...ector-download-hddss-bin-hddss_120gb-bin.html

    I cant guarantee it will work, ive seen mixed results with people fixing a hard drive configured for use as a usb storage device.

    I have heard people say format it to NTFS then connect it back to the 360 and it will show up as unformatted, something you could try too.

    Give it try you have nothing to loose really, just be sure you accept that you could totally ruin the drive if you mess up when following the above tutorial.

    The one i linked to is the correct one, you can even open it in a Hexeditor or Notepad++ and see the drive its for.

    if that didn't work my only suggestion would be format the HDD to FAT32 then use HDDHACKR and create a bootable device with a flash drive with msdos, after put your bin file there make sure if its hddss120bin to change it to just hddss and include the hddhackr on it probably the latest version if not use 1.2.2 and follow the tutorial on hddhackr on how to go from there

    You can format it to ntfs. Plug the drive in and go to my computer and right click it,select format & choose ntfs, this may or may not work for the xbox to recognize the drive. There isn't a tutorial that i know of to fix drives formatted like this. The hard drive can always be used for storing files or you can use it in a laptop or desktop after you dissemble the xbox hard drive enclosure.

    I don't think there is anything you can do.
