Have boughten before but now I need to pay again?

Hello, I appreciate you looking at my problem and hope you can solve my issue. I purchased several arcade games a while back. They included: Robotron: 2084, Time Pilot, Geometry Wars Evolved, and Sonic The Hedgehog. I would think I would be able to go into the Arcade Marketplace and download them again free of charge since I have already purchased them. However, the Arcade Marketplace is saying that I need to purchase them again. This doesn't make any sense and I would like to know why this is happening. Any explanation or advice would be much appreciated! Thanks so much!

Okay well I have only one of those games in my downloaded history and the only one I do is Sonic The Hedgehog. When I download Sonic from the history it still gives me the trial even though it says full game download. I have achievement points for the games I listed in my first post and there has to be some record of me purchasing the games. This happened after I sent in my original xbox for repair. I really hope that this can be solved. Thanks for the tip though! I would appreciated more help...

Okay well this solved my Sonic issue! Thanks! However, it didn't solve the issues with Robotron: 2084, Time Pilot, and Geometry Wars Evolved. How do I not have the licenses for them but have bought it in the past and got achievements for it? Its not on my history either....this is strange. I had them on my original Xbox which got sent in. When I received one back, I lost all arcade games or licenses for them.

Did you have any other accounts on your Xbox that could have bought those games?

If they don't show up in your Download History, I'm inclined to believe that they weren't purchased with this account. You can call up phone support in your region to confirm your purchases with them, but I'm betting it's more likely that someone who shared your console at some time (family, friend, roommate, etc) purchases and/or downloaded it there. If it was purchased there, anyone would be able to play it, but they'd still need to be logged in to redownload it.

Yeah this makes sense but I swear I downloaded them. Maybe they were bought on a temporary gamertag or something. Thanks everyone for the information on my problem!

You must be from the Northern US as "boughten" is not a word anywhere else.
