    I have recently got my XBOX 360 connected to the internet, but when I go to sign into XBOX live it wants me to create a new profile, is their no way I can get my existing gamer profile signed into XBOX live without it having to create a new profile because I don't want to lose all the achievements/savegames etc that I've already got.

    Advice needed please.

    Thank you

    There is a gamer profile recovery option on the dashboard.

    You should be able to Retrieve the gamertag using your sign in details, its in the settings menu.

    I think he means that he has an offline gamertag that he wants to take online.

    In that case, just sign in to your gamertag and while signed in (this is important, you have to be signed in to that profile) and press the Join Xbox Live button which can be found in several places.
