Windows live email address isn't associated with gametag ?

7When i try to join xbox live, I sign in with my windows live e-mail address and password. I get 'Windows live ID is associated with a different gametag. Enter another Windows Live ID and password.' ?

I don;t know what previous gametag it is referring to  ?

How can I match my windows live account to a new gamertag ?

I suggest looking on this site about managing your Windows live id.

support.xbox.com/.../manage-live-id

Hopefully the solution you are looking for is in there.

Hello, this means that you are trying to join XBOX Live not download your profile. You will need to go to your XBOX 360 Dashboard > Push the middle button on your XBOX 360 Controller and go to "Download Profile > Follow the on screen instructions to enter in your e-mail and password and it will start to download your profile.

I had this same problem, tried to download and it said "you cannot download profiles at this time"

Anyway, I used my hotmail to play with my gamertag on a friends xbox many years ago. Now I have my own xbox and internet. My profile is the same name. When I do finally get to download my profile, can I combine the one I have now with the old one? I hope this doesn't cause an issue where I have to switch profiles, lose my gamertag, or have 2 'vezmus' profiles etc.
