    The only quick fix I know of where you don't need to smother your 360 in a towel is unplug the power, pop the HDD, plug it back up, turn it on, if there's no RRoD, try playing a game without saving it, then unplug it, put the HDD back on run it again, if it continues you now know its something with your HDD.

    That sucks you need to reformat it in the Dashboard, at least I think you can still do that. It erases Everything though.
