2x Accounts

Hi guys.

When I first set up my xbox 360 account I didnt play for while and forgot my account name and passwords.

I then got another voucher and set up this account but it would not let me use my email address as it was linked to the old xbox 360 account.

So I set up another email account on this account.

But I want to use my old email account with this user name.

I deleted the ZZRPilot account on my xbox as I never really used it.

But am unable to alter the user name on that accout to this user name as it is already in use.

I contacted xbox 360 support who now send mail from Maj Eiswater account to the ZZRPilot account.

But that was not what I wanted to do.

I can still sign into the ZZRPilot account.......I want to delete that account completly or remove the user name ZZRPilot and replace it with Maj Eiswater handle.

Help

Regards

You will have to change your email address on the dummy account, to free it up. Then once that is done, change the email address on your main account to your main email address (as it will become available again). Job done.

I hope that was clear.

Thanks for uer help

No worries.

Alas this was not as simple to do as I thought.

I deleted the ZZRPilot account off the xbox, and I now want to delete that account off the xbox website as I now think this would be the easier route.

Yesterday I had a strange thing happen when I turned on the xbox 360.

The screen kept freezing, and I had to keep turning the machine off and re starting,

I came on here and looked at various advice on how to sole it.

I tried to put them into action on my machine only to fail.

I phoned my son Hunterki11 who has an account on xbox, and he led me through deleting the system casche, deleting Maj Eiswater profile and re installing the profile from xbox on line.

I can now use my machine but all my friends avatars on black ops are greyed out and when trying to launch black ops where you get the back screen and that symbol that spins round in the bottom right of the TV screen, the screen either locks up or just spins forever without completing the launch to online game.

I have tested the network and contacted Sky my service provider and all is well, but I cannot play black ops online.

Now I am thinking I either need another machine or a hard drive.

Cheers for any advice anyone can offer

Sorry about the typo's....lol

I have found I can play other games on the 360 and online, so the fault just lies with launch into multiplayer on Black ops.

Also considering having the machine serviced, dont know if it should be done or not.

That's the thing, you can delete a gamertag from the Xbox, but it will stay on the Xbox LIVE servers, you cannot delete that.

That's why you have to change the email address on the "dummy" account, which will free up your main email address so that you can use it on your new gamertag.

Can I ask you a question ?

Not long after posting this question I am now unable to go online and play Black ops or to see my friends gaming avatars.

My loading screen for for multiplayer on black ops locks up or just spins without loading.

I am able to play other games in multiplayer though.
