Xbox 360 Errors 68, 69 or 70 with XL Internal HDDs

Error 68

This error can occur on any Xbox 360 console (modded or retail) and with or without the XL internal HDD patch applied. You may notice the error only happens sometimes and is not consistently reproducible. The patches are not responsible for this error. It seems to happen with some Samsung SSDs. If you are running into this error and are using the XL internal HDD patch, try upgrading to patch version 2 or later. If that does not help, contact FATXplorer support for help.

A temporary workaround is to just reboot the console when the error occurs. The next boot should be successful.

Error 69

Important Note: The below information only applies to modded Xbox 360 consoles that have the XL internal HDD patch applied. If your console is not modded, or you are not using the XL internal HDD patch, please look elsewhere for a solution to your error.

An Xbox 360 console with the XL internal HDD patch applied will boot to E69 if the HDD was not formatted using FATXplorer. This is to prevent non-XL-formatted HDDs from being loaded, and to protect your data from corruption. Please perform a one-time format of the HDD using FATXplorer and the error will go away. After the one-time format in FATXplorer, you can reformat the HDD at any time on the Xbox 360 dashboard if you ever feel the need to start fresh. If your XL-formatted HDD has suddenly started causing E69, there is an easy fix to get things back in working order. Contact FATXplorer support for help.

Error 70

Important Note: The below information only applies to modded Xbox 360 consoles that have the XL internal HDD patch applied. If your console is not modded, or you are not using the XL internal HDD patch, please look elsewhere for a solution to your error.

An Xbox 360 console with the XL internal HDD patch applied will boot to E69 if the HDD is 4K Native. The Xbox 360 does not support 4K Native internal HDDs. You are unlikely to see this because 4K Native drives are uncommon, and FATXplorer will not format a 4K Native HDD. However, it may be possible to convert the HDD to a format that will work. Contact FATXplorer support for help.
