Corrupted Gamer Profile...

Okay, I had been playing Crackdown for the past couple of days and this morning I turn on my Xbox 360, to find that only one of my two gamer profiles is found, the second is my brother's. My main gamer profile which I use isn't there so I cant sign in. Enraged, I decide to investigate. So I go to my Settings, and from there go to my Memory section, and then to my Gamer Profiles, where lo and behold I find my profile along with my my brother's profile. The only difference is is that my "status"(?) is Corrupted Profile where as my brother's profile is Gamer Profile. So it turns out that I can't sign in as my Profile and have lost all my saved games. I am extremely annoyed about this, and was wondering if anybody else has run into the same problem, and if they had how did they restore their profile. O and btw, I do not use Xbox Live. Any help would be much appreciated.

it sounded hopeful until you said that you don't use Xbox Live. Had you, you could download your gamer profile in the condition it was last time you logged in. But for this, I don't think there's much you can do.

your game saves are gone forever, and since you dont use xbox live i dont think you can recover your gamertag. sorry.

SOLUTION YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAY

Aparantly when I just recovered my XBOX Live profile after deleting it because of the corruption thing. It also took the corruption thing away on all my profiles. This is good news for me and it should be good news for you aswell. But this is if you have an XBOX Live profile, at least one.

Ok let me go through the stept.

1:Turn on XBOX 360 wanting to have fun playing games and online with friends or other people from around the world. 2:OMG where have my gamer profiles gone. You look into settings and make your way through memory then gamer profiles. 3:You find that there is a sign saying"CORRUPTED" next to the name of your gamer profile. 4:To your luck you have at least one XBOX Live gamer profile. So you delete that Live profile and then recover it on the XBOX Live Marketplace Tab and then go to recover gamer tag, when you type in all your Windows Live info it should start recovering the XBOX Live profile. 5:When it has recovered you look into your settings again and then into memory and gamer profiles. HORRRRRAAAAA it does not come up with "CORRUPTED" anymore and you can safely use all your pofiles once again. Even if ther are not XBOX Live profiles.

BUT REMEMBER you MUST have at LEAST ONE XBOX Live gamer profile for this to work ok.

Have fun.

Yes that would work but the person said they dont use xbox live so there still kinda screwed right now. Ive never experienced a profile corruption. How the hell would that even happen? Most ive experiences is my Crackdown game save claiming to be corrupted which was fixed with a game update.

cud try deleting the currupt gamertag (it dont wipe the saves if u choose not to) then make a tag with same name exactly and hope the game saves still work with it.

then you = screwed, its always a good idea to connect your 360 to some sort of an internet source to back up your profile, since it is data that can be corrupted over time, that way if this ever happens you just can just recover and be good to go.

Sorry that this happened to you :( *hugs*

This happened to me and I deleted my profile on my xbox and then recovered it, all was good after that. Oh just delete your profile only, and no other files. You will have options of what to delete.

My Profile appeared as corrupt this morning and i got the storage device issue u mentioned. it happens if u have the corrupt profile still on the storage. Cant move same named files to the same directory on Windows and the saem applies to XBOX. I am glad Microsoft made a good way to deal with this profile corruption issue.

At my dad's house, I have xbox live. When I got the RROD, I brought the hard drive on my bro's xbox and I was able to sign in without recovering my profile. However, when I bring the hard drive to my mom's house (with no Xbox Live) the profile is corrupted, and when I bring the hard drive back to my dad's, it signs me in no problem. Why is this?/ is there no way to sign in?
