You should be able to either call xbox or email them the problem and they will be able to help you, you just bought the 3 month subscription I believe and if it isn't working, then it is there problem, that you need them to fix, maybe give you a different code

The xbox live cards for the 360 are backwards compatible. They will work for regular xboxes but the one for regular xboxes are not compatible with the 360. So if you buy a xboxlive card for the 360 it will work. You should call 1-800-4my-xbox and confirm that they are still backwards compatible.

You can get a free subscription for 1 month all the way up to 13 months using this guide. It's no joke it worked for me. I have an xbox live gold subscription that I didn't have to pay for because I did what this website told me to.

Hey I just called the 1-800-4my-xbox and they said that the xbox 360 subscription codes aren't compatible with regular (a.k.a. version 1--which is what the guy on the phone called it) xbox. I'm pretty sure he understood me correctly and everything, but if you don't think so, give them a call.

How do i set up live

In order to set up an xbox live account you need a few things. First is an internet connection to the Xbox itself. Secondly is an email account, as you need this to set up the live account. Third is an Xbox live subscription for gold if you intend to play games online. When you set up your account, you will be allotted 1 month free of gold subscription, after that, you can buy gold subscription cards at walmart, or kmart, or radio shack. An Xbox live silver subscription is free and allows you to download game content and movies and such, but not play games online. When you connect your box to the internet, you sign in with your profile and your then already on an xbox live silver subscription. You can upgrade to gold again buy either buying a gold card, and entering the code, by redeeming your code through, there is a tab after you push the dashboard button. Or you can choose to put in your credit card information, and have it charge you monthly, three months, or even yearly!

On xbox live but game will not laod up halo 2 regular xbox connection is good.

A few months, near the beginning of the year, Microsoft stopped providing services via Live to the original Xbox and all of it's games. As such, Halo 2 can no longer be played online. Sorry.

Old (Original) Xbox - Live Account

You will have to purchase a subscription code
I'm not sure if you can get them at retail stores, but they are available on Ebay. Don't get the ones that state theya re for xbox live gold membership.
You can also get the xbox live starter pack which includes 3 months xbox live and a headset (that is if you can still find them, again ebay is a great starting place)
That's how I did it.
Happy gaming

Xbox live trouble

You should be able to enter your credit card number and pay the $50 yearly straight through the xbox. Check it out in the dahboard and look for live on there.
