                    I have a corrupt file problem I have 2 xbox 360's and one is modded/banned from live and the other I diddnt mod so I can play online. Now I've been playing both for about a year but now I get corrupted...

                    um dont have the modded xbox hooked to the internet online bro, they see what that one tag does when you go online to gain ur achevements. so my point is to have ur Acheicement points show up on ur gamertag or your profile for instance, it has to be legit, that other xbox must have some file thats not allowing to use it cause that other xbox still has its internet hooked up
                    i think

                    I don't have xbox live but i have a corrupted profile

                    I have never seen a fix for it without the Xbox Live.

                    1.Either backup your profile (GT) over at a friends house who has an xbox live connection.
                    2. You can always back up the Gamertag to your Pc...
                    3. Call Microsoft they always have a solution.

                    My xbox 360 profile is corrupt.

                    IF your profile is not an xbox live account, your xbox profile cannot be recovered, however, if your account is an xbox live account all you need to do is have no one signed in, press the center xbox button, go down to recover account and enter your information

                    Corrupted profile on XBox 360

                    I have heared that if you just delete the profile, just the profile, everything will be just fine (note: This only works if your profile is on xbox live).
                    Just go to memor, then go into the saving device the corrupted profile is on. Then "click" on the botton that says profile and delete the corrupted profile. Remember; the profile will be a small save and not taking up most of your harddrive, look for something with MB size, not GB size. When you have done this, go to "recover gamertag" and do so for the profile you just deleted. After all this, your game saves and achivements should be present and working.
