    I got banned, everyone did, but i know for sure that my gamertag is on my harddrive and i bought a new XBOX, Why cant i just put my harddrive in in and it recognizes my gamertag? Ive seen people do that, just pop their hds in an xbox and play. What gives?

    you have to recover it

    delete the corrupted one and go to recover GT and it will take a while after that

    also any game saves that were loaded/saved too while the 360 was banned are corrupted, there is no way to recover these saves, they are gone

    you must recopy any games that were saved to the HDD also

    So when you get banned it trashes your profile and all your saves, not just bans you from online?

    Unfortunately, and it still tracks the backups played if you continue to play with it connected after the ban. I dont know if this will result in a tag ban. When i had mine recovered it had the last backup i played in order in acheivements even after being banned [​IMG]

    The only game i played as a backup offline was modern warefare 1 not the new one. So basically everything i did while offline got trashed? How long does it take before you can recover the gamertag after you delete it which i did, down side to EVERYTHING is i bought my xbox used and already modded, so i just changed the gamertag name and password and everything, my friend was cool with this, but today while going to recover it i couldnt. and i confirmed with him all the info passwords and login and it just wont log in. This was before i deleted it. should i wait till tomorrow or something? i have so much Purchased information like map packs for gears of war 2 i BOUGHT, i can see all the info on my drive just cant do anything with it... Sucks.

    you should be able to recover it if it was just a console ban. you would receive a message if your tag was banned. if the recover doesn't work the helpline can give you the info as long as you have your personal info.

    it cant be on the same box that was banned, that one is essentially cut off from live

    only game saves that were accessed while they system was banned
    all other saves are fine

    if the corrupted profile still exists on the 360
    it will not recover another one since it sees that one with the same name
    delete it first

    DLC, and everything else should still be the same
    you shouldnt really needed to re download it

    also any achievements gotten after the 360 was banned will not be carried over
    MS made sure achievement whores would not get an advantage
