A few months ago, Microsoft had disabled hard drive functionality on banned Xbox 360 consoles and corrupted its data (profiles, savegames, achievements) through an Xbox 360 system update. Now, it seems that Microsoft has finally realized that move was both inappropriate and illegal. We have just confirmed that April's Xbox 360 system update re-enables hard drive functionality on banned Xbox 360 consoles.


To restore your Xbox 360 hard drive functionality without losing your data, just follow the steps below:

1. Download Xbox 360 April 2010 System Update.
2. Extract it to a root directory of an empty USB flash drive (FAT32) or burn it onto an optical media device (CD/DVD).
3. Place the USB flash drive/optical media in the Xbox 360.
4. Power cycle the Xbox 360.
5. The update program will start automatically. Select Yes, update now and press A.
6. Wait for the update to complete.
7. When the console reboots, you're done.

Update: It appears that avatars were missing in original update. We have updated the system update link above and included the proper one. If your avatars are missing, just re-download and re-apply the update above.

Hope not because you deserved it. Should be considered a mercy "thank you" and not looked at as an "about time"

Well for your information My console was not banned I don't play on line and I don't pirate games. I'm against pirating but IMHO Ms went to far with this disabling hard drives. There's quit a few people out that had there console ban for no reason.

Anybody who supports this console is supporting vertical markets.
You should be slapped repeatedly for owning the 360, and your ipod.
Burn in hell you sadistic bastards.

You have support for a hard drive again do you? Wow. How impressive. Hey, have they fixed that issue between the 360 and the television that was being sold with it way back in 2007? How about the failure rate, is it below 30% yet? How about those hard drives... do you appreciate being charged an exorbitant fee for a plastic casing? I think it's great that all peripherals for the 360 have to be Microsoft approved.
I think it's wonderful that they offer the 360 without a hard drive, especially when it messes with developers ability to offer content to their market. How about that Live service... nice to know that with a little bit of marketing, anybody can be convinced of a lie.
So nice to know Microsoft will ban a 360 for pirating, or being chipped, but those mouthbreathing racists that proliferate are abundant and accepted aren't they now?
Keep it up people, maybe with your support, the 360 will stick it out for another few years before it's steam rolled under a wave of new and truly innovative technology.

You people are disgusting sheep.

If I ever buy a 360, and I probably wont, I will mod it, and I will pirate every game for it simply out of principle and there is nothing they can do to stop me. I don't consider console online something fun anyway with all the kids yelling in your ears. Consoles are for single player games. At least that's what I would use it for.
