Re: Xbox 360 deleting profiles and has no storage device
This sound like your hard drive took a ****. But before we count out the Hard drive your BIOS battery may have just died. If your warrenty is still vallid then maybe XBOX can help but if it is out then try replaceing the BIOS battery first. This would be the cheapest way. If you are uncertain what the bios battery looks like it is a flat battery that is about the size of a quarter. After you have replaced the battery and there is still no change then the next thing I would recomend is replaceing you hard drive.

Try to clear your system of the most recent patch:
"Solution 6: Delete and then re-download system updates
To delete and then re-download the system updates, follow these steps. Note These steps delete system updates that are installed on your Xbox console.
Press the Guide button and then select Xbox Home.
Select settings and then System.
Highlight your storage device (but do not press A to select it).
Press the following buttons in the following order:
On the Delete System Update screen, select Yes.
After your Xbox console restarts, select OK to download and install the system update.
After the system update is installed, re-download your Xbox Live profile and try to sign in to Xbox Live."
You may also be out of hard drive space if you're using a 4gb internal model Xbox 360. If you haven't already, find yourself a compatible USB thumb drive to insert, format and use as added memory.
1) Turn off your Xbox 360 and physically disconnect it from the internet by either unplugging the ethernet cable or disconnecting the wireless adapter.
2) Turn on your Xbox 360 and sign into your account. You should NOT be connected to Xbox Live.
3) Navigate to the "System" blade and choose the "Memory" option, then select your storage device.
4) Now search. Look through all the system folders then find and delete ALL incomplete content files. You can spot an incomplete file by the yellow exclamation point icon. Remember to delete ALL incomplete files
5) Once all the incomplete content files have been deleted, turn off your Xbox 360.
6) Reconnect your Xbox 360 to the internet by plugging back in the ethernet cable or wireless adapter.
7) Turn on your Xbox 360, connect to Xbox Live and hopefully your problem is solved.
this also happens when you recover you gamer tag too many times, its a safety thing, go to live.com sign in an you will have a message follow the steps to re activate your account, sill i know but it worked for me...
Just use the "Recover Profile" option on the dashboard.
This only works if your connected to Xbox Live and the profile has been
recently Synced with The Xbox live Servers So No Live=No Profile
Recovery. The Recover Gamertag function is on the same side bar where you login to a profile..
After your Xbox starts hit the Xbox button on your controller and
'Recover Gamertag from Xbox Live' should be right under 'Create New
Once you select 'Recover Gamertag from Xbox Live' it will walk you through the steps required.. or I would suggest you to visit the forum and discuss your problem http://forums.xbox.com/
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.
Hey that sucks. You could try to call 18004MYXBOX if you had LIVE and they may be able to recover your profile also go to the system blade and pick memory Press Y on the hard drive symbol and then press X,X,Left Bumper, Right Bumper, X,X. Once you do this a messsage will appear saying: Do you want to perform maintenance on your Xbox 360 storage devices? Hit yes If no sometimes things will actually say corrupted data
IF your profile is not an xbox live account, your xbox profile cannot be recovered, however, if your account is an xbox live account all you need to do is have no one signed in, press the center xbox button, go down to recover account and enter your information
I have heared that if you just delete the profile, just the profile, everything will be just fine (note: This only works if your profile is on xbox live). Just go to memor, then go into the saving device the corrupted profile is on. Then "click" on the botton that says profile and delete the corrupted profile. Remember; the profile will be a small save and not taking up most of your harddrive, look for something with MB size, not GB size. When you have done this, go to "recover gamertag" and do so for the profile you just deleted. After all this, your game saves and achivements should be present and working.
