I've been having a problem with my XBL Gamertag, or Profile as you will. Everyday when I start up my xbox, my Gamerprofile is in 99% of the times corrupted. I usually notice this when one or more of the following things occur:
1. My gamer picture does not show when pressing the guide button
2. My total achievement score is downed to 0 which is unaccurate.
3. My Avatar is "blank" and shows nothing except for a Grey non clothed avatar
4. Games won't play as they tend aquire an update which can't be downloaded.
5. In the Gamer profile part of my Memory, my Profile which is PantherAtNight is marked as a "Corrupted Profile".
This only happens when my Xbox 360 has been off for a couple of hours, mostly when I turn on my Xbox the first time of a day. I've rarely seen this happen multiple times a day (however my Xbox mostly stays on during one day)
I've been having this problem since a very specific moment. That moment is when I first turned on Cloud saving. (However this might be random and may have nothing to do with the corrupted profile, I still think it was worth pointing out). So basically, it's bugging me for about half a year now. I turned Cloud saving off the second I thought it could have something to do with the problem.
Also Battlefield 3 didn't do any good to this problem at all. When my profile got corrupted every once in a week or so before playing battlefield 3, after I started playing BF3, It got worse with now having to Download/Recover my profile Every. Single. Day. However, I've had a peroid of a couple of weeks after playing BF3 when my Profile stayed entirely "clean" the whole time. Though, having a problem with BF3 itself (Unlock windows kept popping up and Loadouts kept getting defaulted as it was my first time playing the game, which I eventually fixed by deleting the Disc Install off of my system), I deleted my profile and the entire problem returned.
Battlefield 3's problem ("Unable to save Player profile data") may have something to do with my Profile, or may cause one another. Anyway they're both really annoying and both happening on my system.
My question in full desperation is: What should I do? I've tried so many things, but this problem keeps haunting my xbox. I've been forgiving Xbox a LOT (this is my 3rd and I've been having problems with all three of them), but this is really pushing my patience.
Any helpful comments or people who are experience something alike, Please do tell. I think this a serious problem that requires some attention.
*After reading a few Posts that sound a like to my problem I stumbled upon this one: http://forums.xbox.com/xbox_forums/xbox_support/f/12/p/3343/50955.aspx#50955 I will try as Mister Gwyther said to use another storage device as soon as I can. However, If my HDD turns be the problem, would that be a part of the Xbox guarantee? Or would I be screwed and have to buy a new HDD? Thanks*
Note: I have not yet contaced MS support by telephone. I think this a very difficult to explain situation, and considering I'm not much of a talker I think I'd end up giving the person on the other end wrong information. Hence the fact I'm posting this in the Forums.
