Re: Two players on xbox live
Ok well if the back of the game says xbox live compatable(the orange boxes on the back of the case) it should say somewhere that it is up to 1 player or 2 or 3 and so on. you may have to use a guest account for the game but for some games, guest accounts and 2 normal live accounts are disabled from playing on the same xbox. for instance, call of duty 4. but a game like gears of war lets you play with 2 accounts on the same xbox and with one account and a guest.

The xbox live gold membership is paid for when you buy it. It never runs out until you have used all of the time you bought. Like say you bought a 12 month subscription it will last you the whole year until the day you bought the last one and activated it. Only time you use money is when you want to buy something from xbox live. All you need is the internet wifi or direct cable works. You can actually use your xbox live account on any xbox. Say if his friend has an xbox and has xbox live he can then use his account on his friends xbox to play online with his friend. You dont have to worry though every time he goes to an xbox he has to recover his xbox live account info so no one else can use it while he is using it. There is also a few new updates to keep his account safe as well when he does want to do something like that. also you can go into family settings and make it so he cant buy anything with out a pass code even put a timer on it with a pass code to limit time of play. So inclosing no you dont have to buy GB it just uses your internet connection and it does cover the cost of play for as long as you bought the subscription. Hope this helps :)
To play ONLINE Call of Duty then you will need a Gold account. I am assuming that you had bought a 3 month membership to Gold and that is why it has run out?
If the Xbox 360 is used then you still might have a few free trial periods free for 1 month Xbox Live. If I recall previously you could load up to 4 trial accounts. So try just creating a new user profile and see if it doesn't give you one month free for that account? If not then the previous owner has used all the trial accounts.
Make sure you don't use a credit card when signing up to Xbox Live though... it will automatically be set to charge you for renewal when your Gold Account runs out.
If you have to get a Gold account then I recommend you purchase the Live cards at your local store. Some people go onto Ebay and find cheap deals... but I have heard of a few people complain when getting cards that don't work.
Form your Xbox 360 you need to be connected to the Internet by a straight LAN line or wirelessly. You can test you connection by going to the setting screen on your Xbox 360.
Once connected to the Internet for your Xbox 360 go to your main account screen and find the tab that says "Join Xbox LIVE" click on that link then follow the simple instructions that the Xbox LIVE will provide. At this point you should have a name in mind for your gamer tag.
Xbox 360 LIVE has several different options available for memberships. They are a monthly, 3-month and 12-month membership accounts. I would recommend a simple one month account if you just wanted to check out the features offered on XBOX 360 LIVE. If your an avid gamer and love to play games online with friends, the 12-month Gold membership is the way to go.
Once you've completed the process of joining Xbox 360 LIVE, they will send you a confirmation email confirming your membership. Now you can log on to Xbox 360 LIVE and start doing this like customizing your avatar and playing online multi-player games.
Possible banishment from xbox live. I have seen this before and am looking into to help others.
check account management to see if you are out of xbox live. Sometimes you can enter a code and it will not allow you to play on live from personal experience. Check that and if everthing checks out. Get on the comp and go to xbox.com sign in and if you still have your subscription card if you use one. Renter the code and make sure it says code has already been used. Then if it does or doesn't call the xbox support line they can help you.
The problem is that you have created 2 different accounts, you have to use the account you used to complete the game to join xbox live to maintain the achievements - you can't send game data to another account. Play the original account (the one you completed the game with) and use it with Live. If you haven't discovered this yet or the other account expired get more Xbox Live and go from there.
Do you mean play together on the same Xbox, or play online together from different locations? If you're trying to play on the same Xbox online, you can't because he can't login because he doesn't have an Xbox LIVE account on your machine, he's just a guest. It's also possible that the 48 hr card might have expired.
The only people who are allowed to talk on xbox live (in most games including halo) is someone who has an xbox live account. Guests can't use microphones.
However I believe if you recover a gamertag, and two players who both have xbox live accounts are playing on xbox live (on the same xbox), they can both use microphones. But whenever you see for instance Gskellig(1) on halo, they won't be able to use a mic.
