Well in a stroke of luck, after pulling the hard drive to wipe it I found it would not work in my external enclosure yet my standard 3.5 inch drive does no problem and after reinserting the hard drive into my console and telling it to play some music off the hard drive it crashed less than 1 minute later.

As a result I'm going to order a new 2.5 inch drive for the console and see if that fixes the problem which sucks for me as I will still lose everything on the hard drive although after a scare a couple of days ago with Blur I had taken steps and at least backed up all my game saves and deactivated my console. The only debate I'm having is whether to order a 320GB drive or a 500GB drive as the extra 180GB does cost $10 more plus taxes.
