Hi,

This regards my dad's unit and account, he has a GO620. The problem is that his email address was erased by the provider (due to them not providing a mail service anymore) and thus he can't log on to that mail server. This was also the address used in his MyDrive account, hence he can't log on to MyDrive. We have tried setting up a new account with a new email address, but get the message "We cannot create an account using this email address".

I spoke to support, who told me to reset the device, and that would erase the old MyDrive account so we could create a new one with the correct email address. This didn't work.

Thankful for any urgent help, we need to use it in the morning.

    We fixed it by using another email address without underscore, and that worked. Don't know if that was the problem, but if anybody has the same issue, you could try that. :)

    Hi, thanks for your answer! Yes, I've tried this. I don't get the option to "log in using new email" but rather "create an account", but when I do this with his new email and a password, I get the "We cannot create an account using this email address".

    Only an underscore ( _ ), does that matter?
