Did you get the sector size right when you set the HDD up?

Sounds like its losing info... I had this problem once, the xbox did very strange things until it eventually fell over completely...

Yes, possibly an early symptom of the wrong cluster size having been used for an extended partition. Things start to go missing when you hit that partition cluster size storage limit.

If it is that or a symptom of HDD/hardware failure whilst the Xbox is working get the stuff on the partition(s) backed up on PC ASAP because if it is the partitioning the only way to fix it will be reformatting which will wipe the data.

Unfortunately red/green LED flashing is really just a generic warning for something is wrong unless it reboots itself twice first then goes to red/green flashing. In that case, according to the LED error code guides, it is a more serious BIOS or possibly component failure warning.

In short LED flashing 'codes' are very unreliable indicators of the precise nature of a problem whether it be hardware or software related.
