  1. Have to re-download Minecraft each time I want to play


    Hello, I'm looking for help on this. I purchased Minecraft and played, but each time I want to play again it asks me to re-download. I am using a USB drive to store the game, since I don't have storage in my unit.

    Is this normal or is there something I can do to keep the game stored locally and play when I want?

    I just bouth a Gold Membership and tried to use the cloud storage, but Xbox asks for additional memory in order to use it, so cloud storage apparently is not an option to solve this.

    thanks

    Luis

    :)

    Having to re-download my profile each time I want to play Live....

    I'd suggest getting a USB flash drive and preparing it for use as a Memory Unit.

    support.xbox.com/.../usb-flash-drive

    Then, power down, remove the hard drive, power up. and redownload the profile to the Memory Unit. If the same problems occur, then you have a connectivity issue. If the problem goes away, the hard drive needs to be reformatted after you have moved all offline
    game saves to the USB flash drive.

    Having to re-download my profile each time I want to play Live....

    I have tried to research this the best I can so sorry if it has been answered. The first time when I downloaded my profile it worked (after numerous attempts) I was able to play online again fine. Now when I sign on I will go into the game and say "disconnected
    from live" each time. Doesn't seem like I should have to download my profile EVERY time I go to play a game...It is too time consuming since downloading my profile never works on the first time.....usually takes about 6-8 tries before the download will work.

    I have cleared my cache, etc, tried about everything I could find listed on line to do.......

    HELP PLEASE?!

    Having to re-download my profile each time I want to play Live....

    Hi did have a similar issue as you, just like Vibroplex has mentioned try and put it onto a USB memory unit, I do this now. It's much easier anyways this way, as I can use my own gamertag when around family and friends homes! without waiting 30 minutes to
    recover my gamertag!

    Also I do tend to remove the USB every day just incase my console ever got stolen so my debit card details are attatched via my gamertag secured on my USB drive! oh and I always put my saved games on it to! worth doing also, the only downside I guess is
    if the pen corrupts but I do create a backup to my PC! Hope this has helped

    On the other hand it could be your Internet or console, have you tried to download your gamertag at a friends or something? if it works then it must something to do with your end of things.........process of elimination!

    Hope this has been some sort of help

    Recovered and can't get all (Paid) DLC

    If any of the content was purchased on another account, for example your brothers, then you will not be able to re-download it for that account unless you have his account on the console and it is logged into XBL on that console
    each time you want to play that content.
