Xbox Gamertag issues

So I bought my first xbox 360 today and while doing the setup of the xbox live I enter in the email address that i use for most Microsoft things (Zune, .Net, etc) and i keep getting an error saying the address already has a gamertag associated with it. This is baffling as like i said I've never owned or played an xbox before. Can someone explain this to me?

If it is connected to a zune account you will have to create a new WLID to make a gamertag. It makes you create a zune username which acts like a gamertag. I think you can try recovering with the email and password associated with the zune account. I'm not really sure  if you can do that.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
