This happened to me whilst formatting spare h,d,d,s
When you complete a format of a hard drive the console,s unique serial code will
change,I formatted one h,d,d then put in another and used the old xbox console
serial number without realising it had changed as a result it bricked the h,d,d
i had in the unit.E68 Error 1010.

I have found a short under southbridge. I resolved with reballing Southbridge.

Another know fix is it short out the pins you can see with some tin foil. There
are 4 showing with it plugged in short the two nearest the plug with tin foil ot
a clip. This worked for me so it might work for you. can enter your comment...

It can also be missing SMD components near the southbridge or HDD connector.
Check the top and bottom side of the board.

Why a "southbridge x-clamp fix" fix a harddrive error?? And a
"reflow the southbridge"??
There's no other method?
