My story is a bit of a long one, hopefully with some sort of a semi-happy ending.
I started playing Dragon Age: Origins on my friend's xbox 360 Elite, on my own Offline profile that I set up there, with avatar, etc. I enjoyed the game SO much that about 50% through I decided to not only buy the game and all expansions (hardcopy version) but also buy myself an xbox 360 S. So I get all this in the mail, and I sign up for my live account, etc. Everything is working fine.
I go to my friend's house and copy all my saved game files from Dragon Age to a USB drive and take it back to my own home, where I assume I'll just be able to transfer them to my new harddrive and continue playing my game.
But sadly, I get an error message that says that I cannot transfer my saved games to a new profile. So I read up on it and discover that for achievements and whatnot MS doesn't want people transfering saved games to live accounts, okay. So I try and make an Offline profile to transfer the saved games to (since I don't care a hoot whether I get achievements for this, I just want to play the game from where I have left off). But that doesn't work either.
Is there anything at all I can do? Is it possible to transfer an offline profile from one xbox to another, if you never intend to make it LIVE? I don't mind if I have one profile just to finish this game, and another one for all my future games with xbox live.
I don't particularly want to have to finish this game at my friend's house. Since the deciding factor that pushed me to purchase the xbox right now, was that I would be able to play this game in my own home.
