Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Moving saved game info from one profile to another

When i first got my xbox, i didnt have xbox live or anything, so i just named it (scott). when i did get xbox live, i wasnt able to use it because its so common, so i created another profile (BoneFishKilla3). eventually i started using my second profile all the time, but i had a lot of stuff on my first one that i wanted to move to my second one. when i was attempting to do this, i accidentally deleted just the name of the profile (scott). so now i have all this data in the memory unit, but its just says unknown profile, and i cant figure out how to move it or copy it or rename it. every time i try to move or copy, it just says this item cannot be transferred between profiles. is this because it doesnt have a name? how do i fix this?

    Before I had Xbox Live on the 360 I used a gamer profile that is "Jr" but then I got Xbox Live and I couldn't use the same one, and I made another one that is called "R3y1sGlnd" and I wanted all the same games and everything that I had in the profile "Jr." Is there any way I can transfer the games to my Second profile?

    It often says, when attempting to move a game save from one file to another, this file cannot be transferred between profiles :(

It's simple. To move items to another profile go to your gamer card and go the name card or whatever it is. Once you name it again it should be able to move items from one profile to another.

I loset my game card or profile of the game xbox 360 live gold


You can go onto the Microsoft Xbox help website and put in your account info and you can usually retrieve the login info or you may need to call Microsoft Xbox Live support to retrieve the login info and just give them your account information.

I conected my hard drive to my friends xbox and recovered my old gamertag .... but im not fully on xbox live .. i have a silver account .. so i downloaded an update . when i put my hard drive in 'my' xbox...


The reason that you are not fully on xbox live after recovering your gamertag is because the gold subscription has ran out. The reason for your xbox not having your offline account is because you probably moved your account to your hard drive along with your saved games. If you cannot connect to xbox live, go buy a cat5 cable and connect it to your modem and it should connect you to xbox live so that you can download the update.

WHAT CAN I DO IF I ACEDANTALLY ERASE HARD DRIVE AND PROFILE ON XBOX 360


If the profile that is deleted was an Xbox live profile, then that profile can recovered through Xbox live.
However there is no way to recover anything else stored on the Xbox console that includes any offline profiles and game saves.

Old (Original) Xbox - Live Account


You will have to purchase a subscription code
I'm not sure if you can get them at retail stores, but they are available on Ebay. Don't get the ones that state theya re for xbox live gold membership.
You can also get the xbox live starter pack which includes 3 months xbox live and a headset (that is if you can still find them, again ebay is a great starting place)
That's how I did it.
Happy gaming

Save device error


What save device are you using? memory card or hard drive?

It sounds like whatever you're using has started to malfunction. Are you able to pull up other save games?

Note that saved games are associated to a unique profile on the device, even if you're not on Xbox Live. That is, if you were logged in as profile "tools" when you saved the game you have to be logged into the same profile to load the game.
