Only the latest XBox 360 system update supports the USB drive.

Do you have the latest update on your XBox 360?

I used my gamertag at my mates and now it wonte let me recover it what do i do ?


if you can get a usb (at least 1 gb) and plug it into your friends xbox, you can put your gamertag profile onto the usb and then transfer it manually. this is the safest way. your usb must be configured to Windows FAT32 file system format (devices formatted for use with other file systems might not work). On your console go to my xbox then system settings, then memory. on the storage devices screen select usb storage device. select configure now (note this will erase everything on your usb) then The Xbox console tests your USB storage device to make sure it will work correctly with the console. If your device passes this test, you can use it as a USB memory unit. to get your gamer profile on there go to system settings, memory then the hard drive, select gamer profiles and move your gamer profile to the usb. you shouldnt recover your gamer tag unless you absolutely have to as any achievements or changes you have made since the account last connected to Xbox LIVE will be lost during the recovery process. once again do not recover your gamertag to a friend's console as a convenience, as you could also lose your saved games!

hope this helps

My games arnt saving, and/or I'm not receiving any acheivements. " failed to right gamer profile settings. One possible reason is if you removed your xbox 360 memory unit. Changes to your profile...


this may be caused from copying files over to another gamertag in which you wouldnt get achievements now about not saving the memory may be full or the system itself is not detecting the drive for memory

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.

Once you connect your Xbox 360? video game and entertainment system, you'll be ready to start using it. Initial setup is simple: set your default language, create your gamer profile, and you're off and running. The first time you turn on your Xbox 360 console you'll be prompted to set a default language. Use your controller's left stick and the A button to select a language for your console. Note You can change language and other console settings (including time, audio, display, and automatic shutdown) in the System area of the Xbox Dashboard. Once you've set your language, you're ready to create your gamer profile. To start playing games as quickly as possible, choose Create an Offline Profile.
