    Just happened to me today. Level 96. 21 Onyx Medals.

    Wasn't able to fix it by recovering my Gamertag.

    Yup. Bull****.
    GT: A sad sad panda.

    I love music. I play the drums when I am not on XBL. Been playing for close to 3 years. I'm easy going, hit me up any time, any day, and I'll more than likely play GoW with you, if not I'll make it a point to invite you later on when I have time.

    If you make a backup, at least then you can get most of your stuff back if it does happen. As for what causes it? An epic failure?

    And Sisko, you might need to change the title back to "Rank resets still occurring!"

    Some battles are won with swords and spears; others with quills and ravens.

    If u can use 2 usb and delete the data on oldest create date every day when launching gears, it is safest most effective way of backing up data

    Yup 2 backups is even better than 1. I would do that if i had another spare USB stick right now but I don't. can't hurt to be extra safe though

    I would love to change the title to say the resets are still occuring, but the mods kept editing the thread title when it said that. They told me I was "scaring people". I think people SHOULD be scared if you ask me.

    Thanks.
    Yes, I think that's safest.

    I have done every possible thing that could get somebody reset. I have even turned my xbox off during a loading screen and I have still never been reset.

    I backed up my data for a second time today. Unlocked Prescott so thought it would be a good idea.

    To be honest this is one of the situations where having access to a 'transfer' device can come in handy.

    You can just move your save over to you PC and keep a backup there.

    Damn, I wish I had a USB Stick for my Xbox now :/

    But this is a great thread, a thousand thanks for making it, since I can at least avoid a lot of the situations that seem to influence rank resetting.

    But yes this thread does put us in the know, and knowing is indeed half the battle. The other half is just backing up the data, then you're pretty much safe if for any reason this problem does occur for you.

    If you are concerned about it, a back up doesn't hurt. It's a rare problem though, so don't feel it's completely necessary , but again it doesn't hurt if you are worried this may happen

    Like I said before, I have done everything on that list of possible reset causes and have never been reset. I just want some consistency.

    Well you know what they say about playing with fire. Not sure why you are actively finding a way to corrupt your own data, to each his/her own I suppose.

    This thread is to help give a guide for people who want to back their data up, not give out tips on how to purposely corrupt it.

    Thanks OP for the useful info, I have just backed up my data on to a separate USB drive.

    However as I am a new dashboard user, will the cloud service be the other alternative to backing up your data? I'm not using it as I'm unsure what it actually entails. Has anybody else used the cloud service?

    I was just wondering the same thing I plan on backing up my data today. The cloud option would be nice....

    I used a 2GB USB stick , so 4GB is fine. Even a 1GB should be enough to become compatible with the 360 as a storage device, but it does need like 500MB to be reserved for some reason or other

    No you have to configure the device through the 360, to become a 360 storage device. If that can't be done the console won't let you store anything on it.

    Plug the usb drive into your xbox 360, then go to System Settings, Memory, and you should see the USB stick come up as well as your HDD. Select it from there and the 360 will go through the steps of making it compatible to become a 360 storage device
