    Okay so I'm having this weird problem where things aren't showing up that I've downloaded from the marketplace.

    Lemme just start with the whole story.

    Okay, so I got some microsoft points hoping that i would be able to go home and use them to change my gamertag and get who knows what else.

    But to my surprise when i got home there was this dumb status code because of some misfortunes with my whole email information (password) so apparently i called MS before about this issue and they locked my account. Which then meant that i couldn't redeem the code for MSpoints, Gold Cards, etc.

    So from there i finally figured out just to make a new account and use the MSpoints on there.

    Okay, So this now meant i couldn't change my gamertag, but oh wells.

    So I went on this huge shopping spree downloading mostly gamerpictures:thumbdown:frown:i know)

    So I went back on my other profile to see if the pics showed up, they did.


    But then my friend had this wonderful idea that we could go into the marketplace and click "download again" on all the arcade games he had bought, gamerpictures too.
    And to our surprise it worked! I got all the gamerpictures he had, and arcade games.

    Okay, so here's my problem, about a month later i notice that all the gamerpictures i had downloaded from my account weren't showing up on my original account.

    But the gay thing is, that when I go looking through my hard drive under "Gamer Pictures" I can see all the gamerpictures I have.

    Now, what i'm asking is, Is there any way to download something from another profile onto your hard drive and use it on your Original Profile?

    E.G. My friend wants to give me 800 MSpoints for my b-day, but the only ones he has are the ones that are already on his profile. Will it work on my original account if i download the stuff i want from his profile onto my hard drive?

    P.S. Is there any way to like copy or move the gamerpictures so that they ALL show up when i look through my list of Gamer pictures on my original account?

    If anyone can help me that would be outstanding!:thumbup::thumbup:

    Lets explain how some content works, if it belongs to your console, anyone on that console can use it, but if it doesn't you have to sign into Live on that account to use it. There is more information under usage restrictions under the "Confirm" button.

    "Downloading" something from another profile onto your hard drive may or may not work depending on the licence. If it belongs to your console, it will work, but if it doesn't nope.

    For gamerpics check out this:

    Well, I think that might be the case.
    Try logging on one controller with futtbucker
    and try playing the games on blazed.
