Getting Downloads onto second console

Ok....so I received the answer to my last question and realize now that I should have recovered my account onto my kids xbox and then purchased/downloaded the new COD Black Ops map pack which would give them access to them on that console and then once I recovered my account back onto my console upstairs I also would have access to the maps.

 

Since I did not do that I was simply going to purchase the maps a second time under my kids gamertag but his gamertag does not have authorization for purchases so I am stuck again.  If I log in under my gamertag it will allow me to download the map pack again to the console but I have already copied the maps to the console and they won't work when my son is logged in under his account.

 

Not sure what else to do here....I am trying to download them now as maybe that will be different than copying them with the flash drive but any additional help or guidance is appreciated.

 

Thanks!

Question Info


Last updated July 4, 2018 Views 1 Applies to:

So recovering my account onto the second console and downloading them to that console still does not allow my son to log in with his gamertag and play the new maps.

Is my only solution to this problem to give my sons account the ability to make purchases and buy the maps AGAIN so he can play them on his console?????

I have to believe that there is another solution because if I had simply recovered my account on his console when I originally bought them I wouldn't be having this problem due to the fact that once I recovered my account back to my console we would both be able to play the new maps.

HELP!!!

no what you need to do is change the parental settings on your kid's account to allow for premium content

this is done in the family center

no copying the dlc to a usb drive will still require yoiur gamertag to be logined on the 2nd console

editing time sorry scratch the previous post

there is another method but its not really worth the time as it does take hours depending on your connection

a drm transfer can only be done once a year and all the dlc is transfered to the new console not just 1 dlc

http://www.xbox.com/drm

you must sign in on your son's console and follow the instructions on that site

this can only be done once a year and all licenses are transfered to the new console so on your console only your gamertag will have access to the dlc and must be signed in at all times so whoever else uses your own console will not be able to use the content

you will need to redownload all the licenses on the new console so it could an hour or more depending how many dlc you have

make sure you follow the instructions to the letter because it can only be done once  a year and the console id must be the one you are transfering to

xbox support will not do early transfers
