Hey when I registered for my Xbox LIVE account to use my 1 month free trial of Xbox LIVE Gold, I accidentally registered it under my brother's Xbox 360 user profile. How do I transfer this gamertag over to my own Xbox 360 user profile?

Before signing in go to dashboard then choose recover gamertag, enter the gamer tag and its email and password then wait to upload.

OK, anyone agree with that or is there another way? Or is what I'm trying to do not possible?

Recover gamertag is the way to go - It will recover your achievement points if you are worried about that.

Considering I am not a big fan of Mircosoft, I have to say that they were smart and considerate for having such a feature. Saved me a year of points after upgrading to an elite console.

If you're trying to get it from one 360 to another recover it or use a mem card. The memory card is a lot faster, you just transfer it off his 360 to it then again on to yours. The only thing is if you don't have one its about $40 to buy.

Um are you sure you understand what it is I want? All I want is to transfer my gamertag and Xbox LIVE account from one Xbox 360 user profile to another one on the same console, since I accidentally registered the gametag and Xbox LIVE account to my brother's user profile.

Yeah that's what I thought, you just worded it terrible. Is it to get the one month onto your profile?

No I already activated the month trial. All I want is to transfer the Gamertag over to another user profile on the SAME Xbox 360.

ok so let me get this straight you signed up your free live month on your brothers profile and not your profile, but you want to transfer that free month to your profile. I dont think you can do that, or maybe you can call microsoft? If not you need to get another live card.

I tried that because I have two accounts and I tried to transfer from one to the other because I used a year card on my second by mistake and they told me... "I'm Sorry we don't have the mechanism in order to do that process" I was like wow.. that sucks.. ok then
