Why do I get "Status code: 8007048F when I try to edit my account settings?


Your gamertag is always linked to your account, they are one-in-the-same. You can change the email associated with the account from xbox.com or the gamertag for a price, but otherwise you can't change accounts without the gamertag changing too.

We place the wrong user Id and cannot change it how do we change it and create another


To change your Xbox Live Gamertag select your user on the Main Menu. Head to My Xbox and select change gamertag. It costs 800 MS ($10) to change. You can also opt to just create another Xbox Live gamertag both while playing the Xbox or on xbox.com

(I would recommend the 800 MS option if that gamertag is registered as a gold as opposed to silver account).

My xbox 360 died and i bought a 2nd hand one. I purchased many arcade games from xbox live and they are saved on the memory pack. i have transfered this over and no it keeps telling me to unlock the games!...


You have to recover your gamertag for these arcade games to be played again, it's like an anti - piracy feature of the Xbox 360System not to allow data transfer wihtout prior notice. On your new Xbox 360 System:

• press the xbox guide button
• if your are signed in to your profile, you have to sign out first
• after signing out, press the Xbox guide button again and select recover gamertag
• on the next page, confirm on the prompt and follow the onscreen prompt to recover your gamertag

This should allow you to manage and play your downloaded Xbox Live Arcade Games.

Signed up to xbox via online xbox, not console.


What you should try and do is set up a "guest" profile. I'm assuming you just bought your Xbox and have turned it on for the first time? Hence you need a gamertag to get your Xbox set up.
They simply need to have a profile on there so you can go to the dashboard. (Hence why people usually create their Xbox Live Gold accounts on their actual Xbox 360.
Forget for a moment, that you already have a gamertag. Create a new gamertag (you will automatically get a silver account) once you get to the dashboard, you will be able to go to profiles and the very last option and select "recover gamertag" because at the moment, your gamertag isn't on your actual console yet. Put in the details of your gamertag, password, email etc. And accept the terms & use then recover the gamertag.
I'm not sure, but you may be able to recover your gamertag the very first time you turn on your Xbox (which is what you may be having trouble with). If you could, let me know some more of the details and I could give you a more specific answer.
Otherwise:
1. Recover gamertag

or

1. Create a new gamertag (NOT gold, NOT on Xbox.com)
2. Recover gamertag through profiles --> recover gamertag

Hope I was of some help.

Recovring gamertag problem


Corrupt File (microsoft cant let you recover gamertag due to mods hacks and such) that is possibly what has happened. You downloaded a corrupt file and now microsoft has found something wrong. You can no only make a new gamertag and ask for free xbox live for compensation. (you might get it)
