I must have a storage device??

I am trying to recover my gamertag (which keeps getting corrupted for some reason, which is another major issue) and now my xbox is telling me "to create or recover an Xbox Live gamertag, you must have an Xbox 360 storage device."  I do have a storage device...

No I am not using a slim black xbox 360.  I am using the regular black one. And Zen, I realize that I have a storage device, the problem is that the xbox is not recognizing it.

Try deleting your Gamertag and any "ghost accounts" that exist for it. Then clear your cache in your memory and try recovering it again.

The Gamer tag is already deleted and so are any ghost accounts, the problem is I can't recover it because the xbox is telling me "to create or recover an Xbox Live gamertag, you must have an Xbox 360 storage device."

This may be a dumb question but the only thing I can think of is that you dont have enough room on your HDD or it is corrupted somehow :s

Hello! If you're receiving this error, then it is possible that your hard drive may be failing. As a test, can you try removing your hard drive, then configuring a USB Flash Drive as an Xbox Memory Unit? After that's complete, go ahead and try recovering with the USB Drive inserted, but the hard drive removed. Let us know if this is successful!
