I have recently gotten the RED RINGS OF DEATH (no thank you xbox) and my HDD has survived the tragedy.
I bought a new xbox from a friend. (The xbox being a classic white one just like my last) I then put in my HDD
I seen that there were no accounts so I thought the connection from the HDD to the console was wrong so I checked memory.
I had seen all of my profiles there (12 all from family & friends) all corrupted. The gamesaves were "damaged" (doubt it)
I recovered my xbox account and it worked. But my gamesaves were still "damaged" so that means I have been reset on every game I have played
Just Cause 2 (Total time played Approx. over 100 hours)
Red Dead Redemption (Total time played Approx. over 200 hours)
Guitar Hero 3 (Total time played Approx. over 48 hours)
I cannot play these games because I loved them to death and when I switched everything was corrupted.
I asked my current xbox know it all. He said the new patch that made your accounts get corrupted was to patch Gamertag Modding.
ARE YOU SERIOUS XBOX? GAMERTAG MODDING? HOW SAD CAN YOU GET WHEN YOU HAVE TO WRECK EVERYTHING TO PATCH A STUPID GAMERTAG MOD
I WILL NEVER BUY ANYTHING FROM YOU GUYS AGAIN BECAUSE OF YOUR SAD ATTEMPT AT PATCHING THINGS.
DID YOU GUYS EVER THINK SOMEONE WOULD GET PISSED THEIR GAMESAVES ARE GONE?
YOU XBOX PATCHING PEOPLE ARE BY FAR THE WORST AT PATCHNG THINGS I MEAN REALLY? GAMERTAG MODS?
You guys are just sad that you had to actually screwed with peoples accounts when transferred to another console via HDD
