    DLC must be repurchased after switching hard drive to new Xbox


    When I first got my Xbox 360, I created a different account from my main one (I foolishly didn't realize I could have made my main account an Xbox Live version) and purchased some things on it (Left 4 Dead 2 Level packs, Call of Duty Classic, Portal Still
    Alive, Perfect Dark). Despite purchasing these items on my Different account, I could still use them on my main account.

    My first Xbox 360 broke, so I purchased another of the same model and placed my hard drive in it. However, for some reason, I'm no longer able to access the items I purchased on my different account, while using my main account. It wants me to purchase
    them again. I tried logged into my different account and I could install the items, but still couldn't access them on my main account. I used to be able to.

    Can someone please help me so I won't have to purchase all this stuff again?

    :)

    Update: I got it Fixed!

    I originally only transferred the license from my main account. However, I transferred the license again for both my main account and my different account. The items were still unavailable, but I deleted and reinstalled them, and now they work!

    Thank you so much for your help, regardless. You are much more helpful than Xbox support.

    You would need to perform a license transfer on the original account. https://support.xbox.com/xbox-360/store/download-content

    When you purchase content it's tied to the account that purchased it as well as the console it was purchased on. The console license is what allows you to share the content with your other account. The license transfer will move the console license to your
    new console and you should be able to play as normal.

    Did you redownload the content after performing the license transfer?

    I forgot to mention that I tried that. I'm hesitant to try it again since I can only do it a limited number of times.
