Cannot recover gamertags

My nearly 2 month old Xbox 360 slim with 250GB HD will no longer allow me to recover gamertags. Whenever I do I get the message "The game couldn't start. Try downloading the game again." At first I thought my GT was currupted so i deleted it. Then I thought the latest system update might have did something so I cleared the cashe then I transfered all of my stuff to my old Hard Drive from my first 360 that died, then formated the machine and then transfered everything back and it still will not work. I just bought this on April 2nd, recovered my GT at least 5 times on it before and I haven't actually gamed really hard on it before. Help!

When you go to recover a Gamertag and you have a formatted USB drive inserted, you should have the option to select that as the destination.

I'm having the same problem! But I called support and they told me to delete my profil so now it's not on my xbox console at all. So when I do the "xx LB RB xx" thing... nothing happens. Nothing pops up that I can click yes on?

And as far as the memory stick goes... how do I download my gamertag on that?

Try recovering the gamertag to a flash drive. Make sure it's at least 1G.

If you can download the profile then it means your profile is corrupt. If you can't, try signing into your account at live.com with your Windows Live ID. You might need to verify your e-mail address or reset the password for it,
