Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

User Profile Default?

Everytime I turn the xbox 360 elite console on, this one profile is always signed in, even though it is signed off previously before shutting down, it is always on, and we have to sign off everytime to put the correct user profile on. There are 5 profiles available for the system to choose from. It always defaults to this one. It is not the first according to the alphabet, but it was the first profile that was made on the system. How do I get rid of this problem? This does not have to do with "live" profiles, as we are not hooked up to the internet. This is just the console profiles for signing in for games. I can't find the answer on the net. Can you help me?

2.Sign in with the profile you want to be the default.
3.Your profile should be highlighted in the dashboard now. Press A while the profile is highlighted.
4.On the bottom of the screen, you should see a tab that says Auto sign-in. Highlight it and press A.
5. Select Enabled and keep pressing B until your back in the dashboard.
6:Restart your XBOX 360 so you can check to see if the process worked.
7: If it did not work, start over and try again.

Hope this helps. :)

How do i transfer a my profile to a different xbox


Consider configuring a USB flash drive to work as a removable storage device for your XBox 360s. Once you've done that, you can find your user profile(s) in Settings/Storage and copy them to the removable drive. Simply insert it into the object XBox 360 after it's copied and you'll be able to sign in with the copied profile.

Save device error


What save device are you using? memory card or hard drive?

It sounds like whatever you're using has started to malfunction. Are you able to pull up other save games?

Note that saved games are associated to a unique profile on the device, even if you're not on Xbox Live. That is, if you were logged in as profile "tools" when you saved the game you have to be logged into the same profile to load the game.
