    A question in regards to transferring my licenses...


    Once I've done the license transfer would I have to download everything that was downloaded on the current Xbox
    as well as the stuff that wasn't (the items that can't be played without offline without the transfer)? Because that's a hell of a lot of stuff and anywhere I can save time, I will.

    Thanks.

    :)

  3. license transfer question

    I got my kids a 360 for their birthday. Over the years I've downloaded several games for them with my account. I hit license transfer and to put them on theirs not thinking it through. Will the others still be licensed to mineif I connect to live? When exactly does Xbox live change it when you select the transfer and the redownload just lets the 360 know, or does the redownload itself change it?

    A question in regards to transferring my licenses...

    To properly transfer the licenses, yes you'll need to redownload the content. However, if you already have the content saved on your hard drive, the system will only be downloading the licenses. So it won't take as long to redownload everything because you're
    not downloading all of the data.

    The fastest way I've done it in the past, is open my download history on the computer while I have my console on and queue everything from there. It'll automatically start downloading on the console and it's a whole lot faster to go through the list on the
    site than on the console.

    Also, when you do start redownloading, you may get a message that the content is assigned to another console. Just start a download, open your active downloads on the console and select the download by pressing A, and then choose Download All Items.

    Question regarding license transfer

    So this mean that after the license transfer to console B, all the games in console A will not be able to played using my sons account. I rather not transfer the license since with current setup, I can still play the download games in my console B while
    my sons play theirs on console A. The only problem is with Forza Horizon which need a license transfer to work on console B. Without the transfer, it will have the disc error error that many forumers have been complaining. It mean that I can never play
    this game as I cannot re-purchase with the same account and license tranfer will mess up my games licenses spread in the two consoles. Any one has a better solution ?

    Question regarding License Transfer.

    Okay, I just transferred license for my current gamertag then. So Does this mean I should delete and can't play any of the extra Games on Demand Games that moved from my old hard drive to my slim?

    Question regarding License Transfer.

    The license transfer only transfers the files for the gamertag that you are signed into at the time of the transfer. Since your other account is banned, you forfeit anything you had left on the account.

    Question regarding license transfer

    I have similar problem. I have been purchasing and downloading all the games under my account to a xbox 360 console (console A) shared by me and my sons. Recently, we run out of HDD space and I go on to buy another console (console B) with bigger storage.


    Is it possible to activate a license transfer just to some of my purchased games I played to console B and keep the rest of the games license in console A ? This is to allow me to have spaces on both consoles and will be able to download games played by
    my sons on console A and also download my games to my console B.

    The answers I got from this forum is confusing. Some said license transfer is for all the game licenses from old console into a new/replacement console which is not what I want to. Some said license transfer only applied to those games that you re-download
    after license transfer. Who is correct ? Can anyone in Microsoft support able to clarity this ?

    I do not to want to wait for 4 month if I do it wrongly.

    Thank you.
