Recovering Gamertag???

So my old xbox was having a problem where it took forever to recover my gamertag and then it started to turn the xbox off by itself, even with my standby mode off. Well today i just bought a 4gb xbox and just used my 250gb from my old one. When i got home i figured that it would only take like 10 mins to recover my gamertag, it now has been 3 hours and it still is trying to download my profile. Why is it taking soo long?

The higher your gamerscore the longer it takes to recover a gamertag.  If you want to move it using a usb stick instead of recovering it.

Did this solve your problem?

Your gamescore is a good indicator of how long it could take, but really its how much history you have associated with the gamertag be it games played, downloaded games, videos, etc
