Xbox live for existing profile

I have had my Xbox 360 for over a year with one profile.  Today, I have decided to get Xbox Live so I can access DLC for a game I am more than 50% through.  Can I link the current profile to the new Xbox Live Gamertag/profile so I can access the content?  Do I have to start the game all over again with a new profile?

You can't link one account with another, nor can you move game saves from one account to another.  You should be able to set your existing account up for live access though.  While signed in to your gamertag, just go into manage account and sign up for live access.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Could you send me a link that explains how to do this?  I haven't been able to find this out myself.  Thanks.

I just checked this out with an offline account that I created.  It's very easy.  Press the guide button on your controller and select Join Xbox Live then follow the on screen instructions.
