OK so I bought a prepaid minecraft card from wal-mart today and I went to minecraft.net to redeem it. It told me to make a mojang.com account and redeem it there. So, I did. Now it wont let me log on to minecraft.net with my mojang.com account, even though I am using my password. Minecraft also is saying it cant log me in. I dont have a .minecraft folder in my AppData, and I dont know what to do. Anyone help? I will post pics if you need me to but I am going to bed and it just says "Login Failed (Not Downloaded)" when I launch minecraft and "unknown username or password. if you are using a mojang account, use your email" at minecraft.net.
Generally, if it says that it is not downloaded, there may have been an error on installation.
When you get the login error where it says that it is not downloaded, I recommend that you restart Minecraft and go to the Options button before logging in, you will see a button that says Force Update.
After clicking it, hit done and try logging in. It should start installing all of the things you need to play correctly.
If any further problems occur, quote this post with the problems and I will help.
Why won't my minecraft let me log in on my Mojang account? I have the latest version downloaded. But when I enter my email and password into the boxes it says login failed. When I get on my friends account it works perfectly fine. What can I do to fix this?
Same issue here. I have migrated my Minecraft account to my Mojang.com account, it's all worked fine until today. I can login perfectly fine on mojang.com, but it gives me a "login failed" error on the client, and on minecraft.net it says invalid username/password.
Yup me too,
Logging in to Mojang.com Perfectly fine!
Changing Password - Perfectly fine!
Recieving Emails - Perfectly fine!
Logging into the client - Wrong details !?
Dangit. I thought that would've solved things
