    Guys, just brought a used xbox x and it's got a load of games and downloads on it that my son wants.
    So my son used his 2tb hard drive copied the games onto it, downloaded them onto his xbox, but he can't play them,
    Any ideas? Can this be done?
    Many thanks

    He would need to prove he owns them either by inserting the disc or having a record of purchasing them against his Microsoft account.

    Or have a friend who owns them who is prepared to game share.

    Those games are actually tied to the original Xbox owners account & this X.

    The only reason they work in the X you purchased is because they are tied to that console for use without the original Xbox purchaser logged in.

    This status could change anytime btw, if the original Xbox owner buys another console it could revoke the digital licence from your console for his games.

    So to answer your question, no you can’t.

    Consider yourself lucky you can play these games in the first place.
