    I'm sure this has probably been covered, but I searched here and Google and found nothing.

    I just upgraded from an unrooted 2.1 Droid to the Droid X. I was under the impression that I could just restore my paid apps, but the two I had don't seem to realize I paid for them in the past. The two apps are Flight Director and ESPN Radio. I contacted tech support for the ESPN app and they were unable to help. I really don't want to pay for it twice so I'm hoping someone here can lend some insight. I had three Google accounts tied to my Droid 1 and have the same 3 on the new one as well.

    All of my paid recognize me. Have you signed into your Google account? It usually identifies you that way (all of this is assuming that's how you paid for the apps).

    Open the market, hit menu, then downloads. They will be there.

    You did use the same gmail account on the X as the Droid...Right....The apps are tied to the account purchased under.

    I've done the menu / downlads thing. The only apps listed are the downloads I've done on the DX, nothing that shows my old ones. And yes I am signed into the same account.

    Are you using the same Main Google account on your X? If you selected one of the others that could be why it's not showing up on your X.

    You mean Google checkout in the Market? Not exactly sure what you mean. If I go to purchase the app, it brings up the same Google checkout info for the transaction as I had before.

    I'm pretty sure I am, though I may not be. I thought my EDU account was the main one before so that's what I made it this time. Is there a way to recover the apps if I'm not using the same Google account or am I just SOL?

    Well, which Google Account did you have signed up with Google checkout, and is that the one you signed in with? If it isn't that's probably why you're not seeing your apps.

    I only have Google checkout on one account, so I guess I'm logged in with the right one. Just don't understand why the apps wouldn't be showing up then.
