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

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

    Vocês não entenderam. Existe uma coisa chamada compatibilidade de driver USB. A forma como o EFA grava os jogos não é como a memória flash. É uma memória que simula uma memória de um cartucho com alguns endereços onde a cada endereço é alocado um jogo. Na verdade, é um processo muito semelhante à gravação de uma eprom. É por isso que a versão da unidade USB 2.0 deve ser compatível porque é o sistema operacional que faz a gravação. Usei uma VM windows xp no meu notebook Samsung Essentials e não consegui gravar o driver que reconhece o cartucho, aparece uma mensagem de erro.

    @Jonnathann_2022,
    Please translate this into English pls.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    It's okay.
  • Jonnathann_2022 @ Jonnathann_2022:
    You guys didn't understand. There is a thing called usb driver compatibility. The way EFA records games is not like flash memory. It is a memory that simulates a memory of a cartridge with some addresses where each address is allocated a game. It's actually a process very similar to burning an eprom. That's why the version of the USB 2.0 drive has to be compatible because it's the OS that does the recording. I used a windows xp VM on my Samsung Essentials notebook and I couldn't write the driver that recognizes the cartridge, an error message appears.
  • Shape @ Shape:
    The way a software operates the USB is independent of the drivers you are using for USB.

    @Jonnathann_2022, I don't even understand a single word from this. A typical USB device communicates via drivers.

    If it was flash memory, yes, but we are saying that there is software that is recorded via the OS on the cartridge that makes the OS recognize this cartridge, understand? Do the following, take a new machine of yours with a VM and try to do this test to get the EFA working. I would greatly appreciate it.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    The operating system detects the type of device via the hardware ID embedded into the microcontroller of the device.
  • Shape @ Shape:
    He's trying to explain that the EFA linker program "burns" to flash ROM instead of communicating with a flash drive. Which, again, has very little to do with the USB drivers.
