Old Premium HDD on a new arcade system problem
I recently purchased an Xbox Arcade console. The main reason I made this purchase was for HDMI support. I had previously owned an xbox premium system complete with 20 gb hard drive. When I put my hard drive into the Xbox Arcade Console I noticed that my gamer profile didn't automatically load with the system (or at start up). The Console told me that it found one gamer profile on the HDD. I selected it and my profile loaded. At this point I noticed that all my downloaded videos and themes would not work. The themes were located on the hard drive but, they would not show up in the system window. Oddly, the game demos worked fine as did my saved games. I then connected my console to xbox live and suddenly all my downloaded themes and videos worked again. My console has never been solidly connected to xbox live as I don't generally game online. I then shut down the console and removed the internet connection. When I restarted the system, I was signed out and all my themes and videos didn't work again. After re-connecting the modem and starting xbox live everything seemed to work normally again (or as I was used to on my old premium console). After disconnecting from the internet once more and re-starting the console, I once again didn't have access to the videos or themes. This is quite upsetting as my system is generally not connected to xbox live. What do I have to do make everything function normally again? Is there a known issue that occurs when one removes their premium HDD and uses it on a new Arcade system? Any information you can give me would help. I e-mailed Xbox customer support and the only answer they would give me is that the problems I am experiencing are by design. When I asked what I could do to fix it they didn't respond. I would like to use my themes and be signed in without having to manually sign into my profile and then sign into live for the material on my hard drive to become unlocked.
