Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

6 Answers

Gamertag recovering bought the elite today, used live this morning and when I tried to recover my GT to it it comes up with "windows live id cannot associate with that gamertag" I have checked that the windows live id is correct by logging on to the internet with it, and the gamertag I have had for donkeys years, spoke to xbox and they dont have a clue???? The way I read it is that the info is all correct just not linked together. Also when I go on the xbox website and try to log on so that my gamer card etc shows it sends me straight to registration wizard??? But like I said I have had my GT for 3 years now.??? Pleased help as I am dying to play my new xbox..

    when i try to recover my gamertag that i erased yesterday in order to fix another problem it comes up with the error that my windows live id is not associated with my gamertag. i called up support like 10 times and they are telling me to reset my password for the id linked to the gamertag which is nyemidog91@aol.com but i tried doing that and it said the id wasnt existent. idk what i am going to do but i need my gamertag back. i tried creating an id with the same email which windows live let me do and then going on live and trying to recover my gamertag but it still says the id is not associated with my gamertag. i also tried contacting windows live ppl and they gave me answers that did not help at all. can someone please help??!

    I had my gamertag for two years now, and accidentally deleted it, and now when I try to recover it, it says: This windows live ID is not associated with your gamertag.



  • gray9876 Nov 21, 2008

    I have this EXACT problem, I accidentally deleted my Windows MSN account, and now I can't recover my gamertag or log onto the website like you and it's because they are now not associated. When i've phoned Xbox up they ahve told me I can add a new Windows live Id to my Gamertag but for some reason it wont let me and just gives me an error message!!

    Same problem... even have the original email address@yahoo.com but getting bad name/pwd on xbox 360 for live id.

    go to passport.net to RESET pswd and it appears that there is no associated windows live id. so i created one for that email address. now xbox 360 says gamertag and live id not linked.... same problem. xbox.com only lets you use a new gamertag as stated here. Its now 2009... anyone found a fix yet???

HERE IS SOME BAD NEWS.... This is stupid considering it is possible that people change e-mail addresses.

You cannot unlink the primary gamertag to your primary Windows Live ID.

Please note that online primary profiles are attached to the primary Windows Live ID that was created the time you joined Xbox Live. You cannot unlink these. Even if it is no longer used, it will still appear in our database as a history of a certain gamer way back. No one can use it again.

Its simple, if you are dying to play it, create a new account, its short and easy. sorry... when you made your "donkeys year" old GT, did you say "Yes" to the message that popped up saying "I want to link this email address to my GT"? that usually helps... otherwise, idk what to tell you other than you are SOL.

                    Signed up to xbox via online xbox, not console.


                    What you should try and do is set up a "guest" profile. I'm assuming you just bought your Xbox and have turned it on for the first time? Hence you need a gamertag to get your Xbox set up.
                    They simply need to have a profile on there so you can go to the dashboard. (Hence why people usually create their Xbox Live Gold accounts on their actual Xbox 360.
                    Forget for a moment, that you already have a gamertag. Create a new gamertag (you will automatically get a silver account) once you get to the dashboard, you will be able to go to profiles and the very last option and select "recover gamertag" because at the moment, your gamertag isn't on your actual console yet. Put in the details of your gamertag, password, email etc. And accept the terms & use then recover the gamertag.
                    I'm not sure, but you may be able to recover your gamertag the very first time you turn on your Xbox (which is what you may be having trouble with). If you could, let me know some more of the details and I could give you a more specific answer.
                    Otherwise:
                    1. Recover gamertag

                    or

                    1. Create a new gamertag (NOT gold, NOT on Xbox.com)
                    2. Recover gamertag through profiles --> recover gamertag

                    Hope I was of some help.
