Do I have to be signed in to Xbox live to play my Xbox originals?

Took my 360 to my dads house, and downloaded the update, it ran fine over there, and when I brought it home it said it can't launch the game

Here's a message I'm so glad I was given: When you fall you gotta jump back on, I'm a fighter, I'm a winner, I'm a macdaddy.

Which game?

It might not be compatible.

Gta San Andreas, I downloaded it from the marketplace

Only if you have switched consoles usually happens via repair.
If the Xbox console serial # linked to your account has changed then you need to do a license transfer to use your DLC offline.

How do I do a license transfer?

Do you have an official HDD installed?

You can't play XBox originals without that HDD because it has the emulator on a hidden partition.

As far as the license transfer, Google it.

For license transfers, while connected to Live: Settings > Account > License Transfer

It takes 1-2 seconds to transfer them once you start it.

Take note, however. Your console will tell you that you need to download all of your DLC, Arcade games, etc. in order to access them while offline. I've never done this before and I'm able to play them offline just fine. But you can do whichever one you want.

Luckily, when downloading something again that's already on your HDD, it takes a whole two seconds to download it again as it's apparently just downloading the license again.
