License transfer from pre-owned console?

Hello, 

For quite some time I had a console that I bought from another person and it already had many games on it that I was able to play. Now I bought a brand new console, but the problem is, that when I transferred the games to a new console I can no longer play them and i was wondering if a license transfer would solve this problem even if i wasn't the one who bought those games.

If this wouldn't work then I have a follow up question: Is there any way I could play those games on a new console without buying them myself?

Thank you in advance.

In order to play them on the new XBox, you need to have full access to the original purchasing gamertag. If not (and it sounds like the previous owner bought the games), then you will need to buy these games yourself if you wish to play them on the new XBox.
