Hi,

I have had the same problem but all it was just a faulty connection on the hard drive connector which is inside the hard drives outer casing. You need to pull it apart then remove the internal hard drive, give it a quick clean then reassemble it and it should work fine again.

Thanks

Jason

I took my xbox 360 rounnd to a friends house, ive bought the console home and it seems to have wiped my gamertag it wont let me recover saying theres no storage device, can you help.. thanks, Darren


Remove the hard drive from the Xbox and then reinsert it. It is possible that during the move that something happened.

Go into your system setup and check the memory. It should show your hard drive and any usb memory cards that might be installed.

I conected my hard drive to my friends xbox and recovered my old gamertag .... but im not fully on xbox live .. i have a silver account .. so i downloaded an update . when i put my hard drive in 'my' xbox...


The reason that you are not fully on xbox live after recovering your gamertag is because the gold subscription has ran out. The reason for your xbox not having your offline account is because you probably moved your account to your hard drive along with your saved games. If you cannot connect to xbox live, go buy a cat5 cable and connect it to your modem and it should connect you to xbox live so that you can download the update.

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

I downloaded RE5 extra content on my hard drive and another persons console and when i tried to transfer my hard drive back to my console the extra content wont play. How can i get this to work?


The reason behind this was due to the console's unique encription which is being transmitted back to Microsoft whenever hooked up thru Xbox Live using a particular gamertag/profile was activated to avoid software duplication and/or any sort of software piracy. What you can do is to recover your gamertag into your own Xbox 360 and load the game RE5 and it DLC should work after that.

My friend switched out his hard drive with mine on my s60. Later we switched it back, now the avatars for my live account won't show up. Names will but not the avatars themselves. How can i fix this?


Go into the system settings, then memory, and then the hard disk, then profiles. Delete your profile there then use the 'recover gamertag' option when you press the xbox button on the controller.

I have had my xbox for 1 year now after reading some of the ERROR CODE E68 probs i know my hardrive is broken because my bag split when moving it but how do i transfer whats on my hardrive to another 1...


Because your hard drive is damaged your best bet is to recover your gamertag onto the new one, on your profile page the end one says recover gamertag click on this,enter your gamertag, you will then need your e-mail address that you created your account with, then you need your password, this will recover your gamertag onto your new hard drive, it also transfers any ms points and your gold membership.
Hope this helps.

I want to transfer all my xbox 360 memory (gamertag, xbox live, downloaded content etc.) from my 20GB hard drive to a 60GB hard drive. How do I do this?


When you buy the new hard drive it will most likely come with a transfer cable which will enable you to transfer all of your saved data from one hard drive to another.

if u mean a memory card not hard drive just tell me again i ll sort it out

Profile transfer from old 20gb hard drive to 60gb one


When you turn on your new 360 (the 60 GB one), there will be an option on the dashboard that reads "Recover Gamertag". As long as you are connected to the internet, follow the instructions laid out. Just press A on the recover gamertag option; it will then ask for your gamertag, the e-mail address associated with it, and maybe a few other things. After that is completed, just wait for the switch to occur. It usually takes about 5-15 minutes or so, so just be patient. If you do not have internet access, you will need to purchase a 360 memory card. You can then go to the memory option on the last blade of the xbox 360 dashboard (the purple one to the right) and copy it from there. It will then be on your memory card. Then just do the same process to copy it from the card to the new xbox. You will also need to use the memory card if you plan on copying saved game files.
