    From what i understand you cannot use M$ points from another country on an 360 from different country.

    (e.g. If i were to buy Mexican M$ points , i could not use them on my 360 in America.)

    So maybe you should look into trading/selling the points you have for points compatible with your country.

    Hope that helps. :thumbup:

    You could also create an account for what ever country it is and use the points. I had to do that when someone sent me a point card from canada.

    It should. When i recover my friends accounts to get achievements for them on rockband and guitar hero i can still play the DLC i got on my profile. I believe as long as the content was purchased and downloaded by sum one on your 360 it will be signed to your console and any profile can play it.

    As long as the profile that bought it is signed into live will you be able to use it. Or as long as the 360 it was bought/downloaded is being used you will be able to use it. both your console and profile will be licensed to use it.
