Can't make more than one profile on my xbox360

What you need to do to ceate a new profile is sign out of all active profiles and press the Xbox button in the centre of the control, which will bring up the menu screen, if you have no active profiles signed in, there will be an option to create a profile.
Good luck.

This is an easy one. All you need to do is delete your Xbox Live profile information from all of your memory units and/or HDD. After that just use the Xbox Live account recovery system. Your account should be up to date and Passcode free.

Why this works:
The Xbox live Passcode is saved on your memory unit/ HDD and not on your actual profile. So If you delete your profile on your memory, then download the profile again.You get your raw profile without passcode.

Hey thea my lil brotha put a password on my xbox360 an he dnt no wot it is cn u help??? plzzzz

I looked on MS site. It says to delete the profile from the memory and then recover it. If it is an off line profile you will lose all acheivments but an online one is fine. Once deleted then recover it. The four digit code is now gone unless you set it up again

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
