Can I transfer downloaded games from my old xbox360 to my new xbox360

If your console was recently repaired or if you've purchased a new console, use the license transfer option on your console to transfer content licenses. Here's how:
  • On your console, sign in to Xbox Live using the gamertag that you used to purchase the content.Don't know your gamertag? See Download, move, or delete your Xbox Live profile.
  • Need to find your Microsoft account? See Find your Microsoft account.
  • Can't remember the password for your Microsoft account? See Recover your Microsoft account password.

  1. Go to Settings and select Account.
  2. Under Your Billing Options, select License Transfer.
  3. Follow the instructions to transfer the content licenses.
  4. After the licenses are transferred, you need to download the content again to update the local licenses. For information about how to do this, see Download content you've previously purchased.
After you follow these steps, content can be used by other profiles on your console and when you're not connected to Xbox Live.

I've got a uplay account so does this mean that my friends that play with me must also get one or what?

This means you don't have xbox live gold membership , you will need xbox live gold membership in order to play online

or if you have any free xbox live trials like 48 hours or 14 day , use it you can access online features in those limited time

hope this helps :)

How do i put my xbox live gold membership on

make sure your xbox connects to internet. then set up an xbox live account. you can use a free trial but will need to either go to a game store and buy gold membership card or buy one with a credit card. until then you will remain a "silver" which doesnt let you do anything really.

How do you set up xbox live?

Here is a relatively simple guide that will assist you in getting your Xbox connected to Xbox LIVE:

There are currently two options, Xbox LIVE Free and Xbox LIVE Gold. If you wish to play multiplayer games, you'll need a Gold account. Xbox 360 consoles come with a time-limited trial of Xbox LIVE Gold.

Xbox live will not connect to network. Would it tell me if my subscription has expired? I bought new HDD in Dec and received a free 3 month subscription.

yes it would tell you if live had expired !
did you buy the xbox new or used ??
if used it is possible it has been banned from live access ??
if it has been banned buying a new harddrive wont get it back on !
if you bought it new & have never had a live account before then take the free month trial befor you use the 3 month u got ! just go thru the process of signing up to 'silver' membership ! what eva it asks (as it does a few times) refuse 'Gold' membership ! and select 'Silver' !! if it hasnt already had the free 1 month trial it will say at the end of signing for try gold for a month to see what ur missing ! :-)
after the month is up...use the 3 month you got !

hope this helps

I am not certain as to what promotion you stumbled upon. I am 90% certain you are talking about the promotion ran through best buy that gives you free Xbox Live after Halo 3 is released. If you did not purchase from best buy I would put money that this is the same type of promotion.

Unfortunately you will need to have your console set up for Live to take part in this, but the good news is all you need is an ethernet cable or wireless set up. Here is the link on how to set up for Live:

I would take advantage of this free trial to see if you actually enjoy the Live experience. I personally do, but a couple of my friends prefer to play those they can actually see in the room. If you want to take full advantage you might want to try the free one month promotion which is talked about in a right column ad placement on the above mentioned links.
