Corrupted profile after taking out hard drive xbox

I took my hard drive out of my x box 360 to play at a friends.
Now that I have replaced hard drive in my x box it lets me sign into live but it shows my rep and game scores and achievements are not there but it is showing the saved games are on the hard drive. There is a message saying 'corrupted profile' - please help

    The solution offered helped us understand what had happened and why but we needed suppport from X Box the tech guys over the phone to know exactly what to do to recover the online profile. Until we had selected system, xbox, 'memory', 'HD', 'gamer profile', 'delete', 'delete only profile' - the system would not connect to Live. Once it did connect, the online profile was downloaded successfully after we selected 'recover gamer target'.it seems to be working ok now with full access to shared games, rep, achievements etc. We won't be taking the hard drive to a friends house again!

Xbox 360 locks up. what causes my xbox game the hobbit to freeze in story mode? when the story completes it locks up and the screen turns black, I shut it down and when restarted it keeps repeating


Is this the only game affected? Do all your other games play through? You can try to play the game under a different profile. Sometimes game saves get corrupted. That is why they were telling you to purge the hard drive. You can just delete the game saves for this game.

Your problem is a corrupted hard drive. Your only option really is to buy a new hard drive. If your gamer profiles are on Xbox Live, you will be able to recover them to your new Hard Drive.

can you still access anything else that was saved on your hard drive?
such as demos or anything else you downloaded, etc? generally that means your hard drive has over heated, or worse, crashed. but! you got lucky that your whole xbox didn't crash with it. there is a chance you can save your hard drive and all your files. there is a how to here: http://ezinearticles.com/?Xbox-360-E68-Error-Fix&id=2549596

Corrupted profile after taking out hard drive xbox


Did you take this out while it was saving something?

Game wont play while hard drive is in.


This might be caused by a profile you have on the hard drive that is corrupted. You could try creating a second profile and logging into it and trying the game that way, if it works, re-download your original profile. Hope that helps!

My xbox 360 profile is corrupt.


IF your profile is not an xbox live account, your xbox profile cannot be recovered, however, if your account is an xbox live account all you need to do is have no one signed in, press the center xbox button, go down to recover account and enter your information

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.
