As others here on the site have also experienced when i started playing this morning i ran in to a problem. Every time i started a game i got disconnected from XBL. Everything was fine while on the dash. I looked around some posts here on the forum and they recommended starting the game signed out and downloading your profile while in the game menu.
I tried this, however, i got an error message saying "Sorry, can't download profiles from xbox live right now" and my profile now does not appear on my HDD either!
Anyone got any insights as to when my profile has gone, and if this disconnect problem is being addressed? It seems too wide spread for Microsoft to be happy with just letting people implement a quick fix from a forum member rather than an actual patch/fix.
