    I was wondering if it's possible to recover my friends profile on my hard drive then download an arcade game onto my xbox 360 (that he doesn't already own). Then have him transfer his account back to his hard drive and for us both to be able to play it as a Full Game. Is it possible?

    No. What you are asking is "can everyone in the world share one account and play one game at the same time", and the answer is no.

    If that were possible, everybody would be doing it as we speak.

    Not quite what I meant but I get what you mean. I meant...say I wanted "Toy Soldiers" I don't have the MS Points but my friend does...could he use his points to download it onto my hard drive (after I recover it)...then...he recovers it on his console again. And we can both play it, as Full.

    More or less: I read somewhere that you can play the arcade games on any account on your hard drive, as long as it was downloaded on your hard drive first. But...you can always play it on the account that it was downloaded with, regardless of whether you swap the account to another hard drive or not.

    Dunno, maybe I just mis-interpreted what I read. [​IMG]
    Thanks for your help. [​IMG]

    You can technically do it if your friend doesn't mind not being able to go on LIVE while you play Toy Soldiers. Every time you wanted to play the game, you would have to recover HIS gamertag onto your 360, and logon to his LIVE account. This means he could not be using LIVE while you did this. Then when he wanted to use LIVE he would have to recover his account back every time.

    Actually if one of you owns it and it bought on a different xbox, the non-owner can play it as well. As long as the owner of said game logs in first to start the game. My brother and his friends did this for halo maps before. NVM this only works for DLC. Does not work for arcade games

    You can however transfer your rights to dlc and arcade games once a year to another xbox. I did this the other day after I got my new 360. Whatever 360 your gamertag is recovered on the rights will be transfered to. google it and show u a link to the 360 page for the transfer. Do so should allow your friend to gain excess to anything you have bought with your account. Best of all, you can still use your account on ur own xbox 360 to play the games and use dlc u bought.
