    You can try cleaning out the female connection on the xbox with caned air, and making sure it's seated correctly. Was the drive used or new?

    It sounds like you figured out your own problem, you said "I just use the old one as a usb". If you connect it to your console via usb, and save data to it while connected that way it makes sense that it reads it at a usb. You may want to try transferring the data off it, and then formatting it while connected to the dock so it will be recognized properly. I can only surmise the recent update that allows up to a 32gb flash drive to be used could cause a similar issue.

    what im saying is it only reads it as a usb and not in the dock. i need it in the dock to play xbox games since my 250 gb was a third party hdd that doesnt allow playing halo 2

    Try to transfer everything to the 250 and delete the Xbox storage off it. Then try to connect it to the dock.
