Hi darkmoon,

Unfortunately, any games (on demand, arcade, indie) and any media (Movies, TV) you download from Xbox live are only accessible if your profile is connected to Xbox Live.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

@ darkmoon hey first its really not a good idea to give out your e-mail or personal info on the forums. That being said we can get back to the issue at hand. it sounds as if the licences for the games may be out of date and require you to do a licence transfer, so you can get back to playing them offline. check out these steps:

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

Go to Settings and select Account.

Go to Your Billing Options and select License Transfer.

Follow the instructions to transfer the content licenses.

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

A link to this page for you to learn more is as follows:

It might have something to do with the fact that you are no longer Gold.

The following is quoted from the 'Limits On Use' section, for all downloadable media:

"The item you are trying to download is subject to usage restrictions. You can use this item on the first Xbox360 console you downloaded it to. Access to this item will also be granted to all users on this first console. If you transfer the item using a memory unit or other storage device, you will also be able to use it on other Xbox360 consoles, but you'll need to sign in to Xbox Live with your Xbox Live account on that console before accessing the item"

The bold text sounds consistent with what you're describing darkmoon.

Are you playing on your original Xbox360 console?
