  1. Microsoft Account is associated with a different Xbox Live Profile


    I have two sons and I am trying to set up Live accounts for both. The first went through without any problem. the second is giving me error messages. If I go to download the profile I set up in the computer via a game it tells me I have too many profiles
    on this storage device. When I am trying through the Xbox main menu, I am getting an error that the Microsoft account is associated with a different Xbox Live profile, what am I doing wrong? How do I fix it?

    :)

    Help with changing Microsoft account associated with Xbox Live account

    I currently have a Microsoft account that is linked with my Xbox Live profile. I wish to change the Microsoft account associated with my Xbox Live profile to a different Microsoft account, but my current Microsoft account has a subscription to Office 365,
    therefore it does not meet the criteria to change the associated account. Is there any way that I can bypass this criteria and switch the account associated with my Xbox Live profile?

    Many Thanks

    Have trouble using my gamertag on xbox 360

    A little bit more info.

    When I try to join live, it says:

    Setup a Microsoft account for xbox live

    Get your unique gamertag

    Choose your membership level

    After that, I enter my Microsoft account info but then I get:

    This Microsoft account is associated with a different xbox live profile. Try different account.

    I am confused. What xbox live profile am I associated with? There is another user in this box but he uses different email account and gamertag,

    Thanks,

    Sankar
