Arcade games.

When I go to play one of my purchased arcade games offline, it says I only have the trial version so I can't get any achievements or anything.

If you downloaded them on a different console, this will be due to the licenses for those games being tied to that console. The same issue will arise if you're playing with arcade games bought on the same 360 but on a different account. In that case, if you need to do a license transfer, refer to the following:

Transfer content licenses

You can transfer content licenses from one console to another once every four months.

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:

    1. On your console, sign in to Xbox LIVE using the gamertag that you used to purchase the content.

    1. Go to the Settings, and then select Account.

    1. Go to Your Billing Options, and then select License Transfer.

    1. Follow the on-screen instructions to transfer the content licenses.

After the licenses are transferred, you need to download the content again to update the local licenses. This way the content can be used by other profiles on your console and when you’re not connected to Xbox LIVE.

For information about how to download previously purchased content, please see Buy and redownload content from Xbox LIVE.

If it is the orignal xbox 360 that you bought the game on just try re-downloading it.

Greetings, slayground. Are you able to successfully play the full version of the games when connected to LIVE? Does this happen to all of your purchased arcade games, or just a few? Thanks for the clarification! Standing by for your response.

I can play the full thing online, but offline, I just have the trial. I'm trying to play them with the same profile that I bought them with. It's all my arcade games, plus most of the tv shows, music videos, movies, and other things I bought of Zune. I'm going to try the license transfer.

Try copy that game to the internal memory of your console (no harddisk drive), or on the USB stick.

If you downloaded the games on a different console, the license transfer is what you'd have to do. Let us know how it works.
