    How to download “Xbox One & Xbox 360” games using your PC, from “Microsoft” direct links with “Internet Download Manager”.
    Instead of downloading them through your Xbox One,S,X, and transfer them back to your Xbox One,S,X.

    Tutorial by: Eng. Ahmed Elsaid

    ** The video is in Arabic, English comments are on the video.
    ** English PDF file for this tutorial is attached.
    ** I will update this topic later with pictures besides the video and text.


    **This is a faster way to download your games.

    **This method is completely 100% legal.

    **There is no violation or modification done here.

    **You have to own the game on your account.

    What we need to proceed:

    01 - External USB 3.0 HDD 256GB or a bigger size.

    02 - XBOX One Drive Converter v1.1 program.

    03 - PC & Xbox.


    Follow these steps carefully:

    01. Connect your external HDD to Xbox and make it the default install location.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    02. Choose the game you want and start downloading it, for example “Heavy Weapon”.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    03. When your download shows up in "Queue" tab, pause it after downloading some megabytes, "1mb" for example, to give it a chance to put the game data on external HDD.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    04. Now remove the external HDD and connect it to your PC.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    05. Open “Xbox one drive converter” program, press “Scan” to check for connected HDD, Right click over the HDD and select “Xbox mode”.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    06. Remove the external HDD from PC and re-connect it again.

    ** Important: you must remove and reconnect the HDD every time you convert from Xbox mode to PC mode and vice versa. **

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    07. You will find four files on your HDD:

    The first file:

    276492D2-4350-44DF-AD18-57C66F93106F

    (The biggest one) is the game file and its name on HDD.



    The second file:

    276492d2-4350-44df-ad18-57c66f93106f.22c21d21-1f1b-46b5-916a-a0d690ae61e1

    It contains two download links; I will explain two ways to extract the links successfully:

    a. Open with notepad you will notice that there is a space between letters like below:


    [ X B L : ] \ h t t p : / / a s s e t s 1 . xb …………… 1 k a 0 [ X B L : ] \ h t t p : / / a s s e t s 2 . x b………….1 k a 0


    Copy one of these spaces, go to Edit menu, Replace, in “Find what” field paste the space, leave the “Replace with” field blank, mark “Match cases” square & press “Replace all”

    Copy the download link: http://assets1.xboxlive.com/3/63ee3...410810-GAM0_1.0.1708.42921_x64__7cn57wbjj1ka0

    b. Open the file with notepad++ and copy the first download link: http://assets1.xboxlive.com/3/63ee3...410810-GAM0_1.0.1708.42921_x64__7cn57wbjj1ka0

    or the second link: http://assets2.xboxlive.com/3/63ee3...410810-GAM0_1.0.1708.42921_x64__7cn57wbjj1ka0

    Add URL from Internet download manager and hit start to begin downloading the game.

    The downloaded file has a name: HeavyWeapon58410810-GAM0_1.0.1708.42921_x64__7cn57wbjj1ka0

    You must rename it to 276492D2-4350-44DF-AD18-57C66F93106F as the first file.

    Alternatively, as this file’s name before the dot (.):

    276492d2-4350-44df-ad18-57c66f93106f.22c21d21-1f1b

    ** PS: The letters case is not sensitive. **



    The third file:

    276492d2-4350-44df-ad18-57c66f93106f.de37e6d6-559b-40b0-b1ad-ba2779fbebc4

    It is useless; it contains unimportant text.

    The fourth file:

    276492D2-4350-44DF-AD18-57C66F93106F.xvi

    This file indicates the downloading status on Xbox; the game will not open if “xvi” file is not completed.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    08. Switch the HDD mode from Xbox to PC mode and remove it from PC, and connect it to your console, and delete or uninstall the paused download of the game, to let the Xbox know that there is no pending download for this game and we are clean.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    09. Remove HDD from Xbox, connect it to your PC and switch the HDD mode.

    ** Do not forget each time you do this you have to remove and reconnect it again to PC to work fine. **

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    10. Copy only the big size file that we have downloaded with download manager and renamed it to match the file name from data on HDD before, to the root of external HDD.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    11. Switch the HDD mode back to Xbox, remove it from PC and connect it to your Xbox.

    ** We are done with PC. **

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    12. THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP:

    *Now if you try to play the game directly from external HDD, it will not work.

    *Also if you try to copy or move the game to internal HDD and play it from internal HDD while the external HDD connected to Xbox, it will not work also.



    Here is the trick:

    You must copy or move game from external HDD to internal HDD
    and remove the external HDD from console, it will work only then.


    ***Xbox only know that download is complete when the “xvi” file on Xbox says so, for us we have download the game with PC, so no completed “xvi” file generated on Xbox, that’s why we copied the game to internal and removed external HDD, to make the Xbox generate that “xvi” file for us.

    I hope you find this tutorial helpful, best regards.

    Make sure to make this settings for internet download manager to guarantee that the file's hash is the same.
