    [RESOLVED] Project Cars DLC won't download

    Hi everyone

    I'm a noob to Project Cars and got a problem downloading any DLC from PSN!!!!
    I've read a few bits on here but nothing concrete.
    I've got it in disc form and have had it loaded to the main screen and still it won't download any content it will just sit there in the download menu and if u click on it it won't do anything.
    Any help from you would be great as I'm enjoying the game but we all like the extra content but I'm at a loss in getting it to load

    I'm not a PS4 expert but you could try this:

    On the PlayStations menu go to settings, go to PSN and select restore license.

    If you made another account just to get the DLC you have to make sure that account is set as primary (regardless if your other account is the systems primary, you can have multiple primary accounts on a single system). If you want to use content thats from another account the above is what you have to do, if its not set as primary you wont be able to use said content on any other account on that system except for the sole account that bought it.

    Hi Bealdor

    Thanks for the reply and I will give that a go but not sure I explained myself properly and now I've read my post again I think it's confusing even to me ha ha

    I've brought project cars in disc form and I want to add all the extra free cars but it would not let me download,
    I've only got one account for the ps4 and it's put as my main device and again I'm a noob to ps4 after spending years on the PS3.
    So far I've got all my games on the hard drive and have had no problems downloading any other in game free or payed for content which is frustrating.
    I've tried to google my problem but nothing I've read so far has helped so is this a system problem and do I need to contact Sony/PSN with my issue.
    As I've already said any stored games and I've brought extras have downloaded no problem

    Many thanks again

    You need to restore your licence , Select [PlayStation™Network/Account Management] > [Restore Licences]. Do that then go back and download the content .

    Thanks ports
    I've just done as Bealdor suggested and so far it still says waiting to download ��

    Can you please confirm I'm doing this right.
    I've loaded the game to the menu screen and then gone into downloads and pressed on them and it's still just waiting to downloa.
    Shall I delete the downloads and start again???

    Many thanks again

    I've even restarted my system and still no joy :-(
    Gone and restored my license again and again no joy.
    I'm not going to worry to much but would have liked the free cars to mess about with.

    Well I've tried everything mention and still nothing absolutely nothing...
    I don't no if anyone else has had problems with downloading content to project cars or is it just me ha ha
    Will leave the downloads in that section and leave my ps4 on standby and see if a miracle happens but I'm not holding out.
    Thanks again for your help guys but at a loss and maybe it could be a PSN problem!!!

    As the others have said - Set the PS4 to primary under Settings>PlayStation Network/Account Management.

    Also go to pCARS on the main screen, scroll down to Related Items, you'll see a section called My Add-Ons, download them again from there.

    Out of curiosity, did you download them through the On Demand section in pCARS? I've had similar issues when adding stuff using this method in other games, so I tend to search the store instead.
