Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Refurbished 360 My 360 died and i had to send it in. The new one they sent me works but i can't use any of the downloadable content when i am not connected to live. Ex. i cant use tracks i previously downloaded on my new 360 without being connected to live. This proves troublesome because i am planning on travelling over x-mas and would like to bring it along. Anyone with help/suggestion woul be appreciated. Thankd

    I have had a very similar problem. I have a refurbished console. I called the support line, and they told me to delete the downloaded content and re-download it. When that didn't work, the lady told me to call back in the morning and speak with a supervisor. On a whim, I tried downloading a cheap Arcade game (Galaga). This is not one that I had downloaded before. Then I unhooked my 360 from the modem, turned off the console and restarted it. I was able to play Galaga. So, obviously content that is downloaded for the first time onto the console will work offline, but I'm pretty pissed that I have to be online to have access to my stuff. I don't know if this helps or not. If anyone knows of a solution to getting old downloaded content to work, that would make my life easier. Thanks.

I have seen several people say this about having to be connected to XBOX Live and i dont know why, but it always seems to be ones Microsoft repaired and now they want you to be connected to the internet all the time. I would consider getting a memory card(flash) and just save stuff to that and take it with you...of course if where you are going doesn't have a 360 than you are screwed. I would call xbox help line first though.

How do I repair my xbox 360

You can send it in if you still have it under warranty. Which is the safest option, although i dont recommend sending in your harddrive, unless you can download all of your content first, or off xbox live. If im not mistaken they pretty much take the old and send a new. BUT, you could try the towel trick. Your thermal paste may need to be remelted. Wrap it up in towels, with it on. Wait 20 minutes, then take it out and turn it off for a minute or two. ( Im not saying do this! so. im not responsible. But it worked for me on numerous occassions.)

I bought a new Xbox 360 because the old one died, I have gone through all the procedures to transfer the data from the old console to the new one and now it only allows the main player to use any of the...

Microsoft will not allow you to transfer any online content from on 360 to another. Its part of their anti-sharing efforts. You should be able to transfer all game saves, Gamerscore, and other media however.

Xbox 360 help

well when you go to the site, it will ask you to put in information about yourself and your xbox like serial number and stuff. Based on that serial number the website will tell you if your xbox is under warreny. If it is they will mail you a box for free with a free return label for them. It will not cost you anything to mail it. If its defective they will fix it or send a new one. MY 360 elite died on me and i did all that and it was about a month and they sent me a brand new one because they couldnt fix my old one and they gave me a free month of xbox live.

Downloads won't work without Xboxlive?

Your Elite should of came with a transfer kit. If it didn't call 18004myxbox and they will send you one for free. You should be able to move all of your files from your old HD to the new one, then your DL content should work fine.
