If the expansions are on a disc, then just put the disc in, and the expansions will install as if you were installing an Xbox one game.  If they are digitally owned, then you need to move to fallout 3, press menu on the Xbox controller & select manage game.  Your add-ons should show up ready to be installed.

I de mothballed the old 360 San I went to hat to upload it into the storage cloud so I can download it in to my Xbox one like it was suggested and it won't comply because there's limited cloud space and each of the expansions for the fallout here game are a few gigs more than there is on the cloud to store them so it won't do that for me which is annoying I know, but I can't seem to find a way around it and I can't access more cloud storage (as in buy in any) just stuck where I am and it's £3.40 for each of the expansions on the Xbox and I really don't want to have to buy them over again, anŷ chance for some help getting a little furtehr a long, I have tried one at a time I have and I have tried bulk and I have even be in there and manually done it but to no avail for some reason, thanks for taking time to help with this ongoing hitch.

Hey there Gruffanix Mcnoe!

Just to clarify, are you able to see any of the Fallout 3 DLC after following the steps that StuartATrueRed has posted above?

No I cannot see any of my downloaded expansions for fallout three, I have my save game data which is just my character and how far I have gotten and what I have done ect, it keeps taking me to the page to download them and to do that I have to pay, there is no way there to download them for free, and I'm pretty sure it's going to do the exact same thing when I put my old call of duty and call of duty black ops one, I've already got the map packs and we all know how much the cost it's not right that we should have to buy them again, I was really hoping that everything would be there to download for my fallout 3 game so I could just jump right in from the beginning again.

Thanks for clarifying that.

Is it possible you purchased the expansions with another account on your Xbox 360? That would explain why they aren't showing up on your Xbox One.

Hello there,

Thanks for the reply, no I haven't changed the account at its been the same account I have had since my Xbox then the 360 and onto my Xbox one, I've always had my Xboxes for as far back as I can remember and I still have all the old games for them too :) some favourite games don't carry over or get expanded or remade like the old knight of the old republic, and older Star Wars one, all the years of the conflict series of games and every call of duty and so on I have huge boxes and containers and bookcases full of them, the only thing is with this many games and consoles is deciding what to play lol, I hope you can help with the fallout expansions :)

Can anyone help me?

I'm an avid fallout fan I was wondering whether I can purchase the add-ons and download them directly to my xbox one? The reason I ask is that I've only recently got my xbox having been on ps previously therefore I don't own a 360.

Thanks in advance.
