What's wrong with my Xbox 360? I turn it on it looks like it's working then looks like ive never played the game before.. no memory, no avatar, no gamer score?


It may be that you accidentally deleted your gamer tag. try recovering it from Xbox live. if you deleted your tag you may have also accidentally deleted your saves too which you cannot recover.

How do you fix a corrupted profile when you dont know your password to recover your gamer tag? my gamer tag is Asassin661


You should be able to go to www.windowslive.com and use the "Forgot Password" option to recover the password for your Windows Live account. Then, you can just recover your profile using the new password.

I used my gamertag at my mates and now it wonte let me recover it what do i do ?


if you can get a usb (at least 1 gb) and plug it into your friends xbox, you can put your gamertag profile onto the usb and then transfer it manually. this is the safest way. your usb must be configured to Windows FAT32 file system format (devices formatted for use with other file systems might not work). On your console go to my xbox then system settings, then memory. on the storage devices screen select usb storage device. select configure now (note this will erase everything on your usb) then The Xbox console tests your USB storage device to make sure it will work correctly with the console. If your device passes this test, you can use it as a USB memory unit. to get your gamer profile on there go to system settings, memory then the hard drive, select gamer profiles and move your gamer profile to the usb. you shouldnt recover your gamer tag unless you absolutely have to as any achievements or changes you have made since the account last connected to Xbox LIVE will be lost during the recovery process. once again do not recover your gamertag to a friend's console as a convenience, as you could also lose your saved games!

hope this helps

Recently bought a refurbished 360 elite. The system knows a hard drive is present, but it's listed as "unformatted," and won't let me use it to recover my gamer tag. Formatting it does absolutely nothing....


To make the xbox360 hard drive 'formatted' to the console you need to follow these simple steps.
1, Go to the system settings on the dash board.
2, Select memory settings and highlight Xbox360 hard drive option, do not select, but press the yellow or the Y button.
3, From the menu that appears, select 'Format' and the hard drive will then be formatted to the console enabling you to use it as it was meant to be used.
Other than that, you will need a new hard drive as the one they have provided is faulty.
Lesson learnt for buying the cheaper 're-furbished' product. I hope this helps. Good luck.
