    Help with XBOX Live

    Hi, I have just got xbox live today. I have been playing games ok, but I am having trouble with...


    Keeping my profile that I have been playing all the games on and made progress with. Every time I go to create a new account or recover gamertag it creates another account with the same name but starts me off with no gamer points or achievements.

    Not that i'm bothered about how hard I look with my gamerpoints it's just I have to start all my games over again from scratch.

    Any ideas please help.

    Your question confuses me, it sounds like you've had your xbox for a while and been playing on the games but you've come to set up another gammer profile for xbox live, is this the case or have i missed something?

    when you go to the dashboard can you log in as your main account?

    Everytime I create a new account for xbox live trying to recover my profile with all the game I played it just starts me from nothing.

    I can log in to my main account, but you have to be xbox live registered to play any live games. So when I go to make a new account or recover a gametag, i start from scratch.

    My friend had the same problem as well.

    you should not need to create a new account, of you recover your gamertag from live then this should recover it from your hard drive so you can log the achievements to your main gamertag

    In theory I should just be able to put in a game and just connect to Live. Oh no... Test Drive and Fifa 07 have both told me I need to be logged into live, which I can't do in game. I need to go to the dashboard, and then try and log in there. But you need to sign up to online and that where it creates a new gamer tag with the same name, just with no gamerpoints.

    I think i've worked it out, when I installed the adaptor I had to put in my details, it had my live details with another account for some reason and now I've put my membership details on for this other account.

    Now i've deleted this gamertag, and got to find out which one it was!

    Then try and work out how to transfer the 12 month code to my original account.

    Happy Days

    Just one more technical thing in life sent to try us. I just received the email about windows and msn on xbox 360. Cant be bothered with that, its purely for games in my house. Dont want to make my computer redundant.
