i was playing backgammon on our xbox 360 for 2.5 years on my gamertag with no problem. my wife has a different gamertag on the same 360 and she was always able to play backgammon with out any problems.

the xbox 360 died and i had to buy a new one. i bought the xbox 360 arcade (doesn't come with a harddrive).

i put the harddrive on the new xbox.

i can play backgammon without any problem.

my wifes gamertag sees backgammon as a trial game.

i purchased this game, both gamertags use to be able to play backgammon but since the unit switch, her gamertag sees the game as a trial version.

any idea what is wrong??

there is a way to transfer your xbox licenses to a new xbox.

you have to sign into xbox live with the account it was downloaded from, go through system blades to system then account management, and then select the games you downloaded and then select DOWNLOAD AGAIN. it will not charge you. you have to do this for each thing you downloaded.

it is described here.

sign into xbox live on your pc go to account management do a license transfer (this will transfer all your game linceses to ur new xbox all at once;no need to redown all your games or content you bought;MUST BE THE ACCOUNT ALL YOUR STUFF WAS BOUGHT UNDER)you can only do this once a year,though..
