Profile Problems, "Unknown Profile" game saves

Well, somehow my profile got corrupted, unfortunately I did not realize the need or benefits of having an online profile (b/c you can recover it).  So, I did the only thing I knew to do and deleted my profile (this was after I tried copying and moving the files).  The thing that sucks is you cannot move game saves between profiles, even offline ones, or so it appears.  All my game save say "Unknown Profile" as the owner.  I am not sure if you have heard of this problem, or know how to fix it.  The worst thing is I can still see all of my game saves, they are still on my HD, however they do not show up when I am NCAA 08.  Any suggests?  Anything might help.   Thanks, Ben Long

As far as I'm concerned there is no way to recover those files. I have the same problem and need help.

How do i recover a corrupt profile that is not xbox live

Unfortunately, there really isn't a way to do such a thing. In order to "uncorrupt" a profile, you really need to Recover it on XBL. If you know what you modified to corrupt the profile, you can attempt to open your profile in a hex editor and manually correct the issue, then rehash and resign (Wouldn't recommend, kinda techy and doesn't work all the time.

Corrupted profile on XBox 360

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.
