Can other accounts use DLC associated with another account in the same console?

I have an xbox live account onto which I downloaded a bunch of maps for Halo 3. I created a new account in the same console. Now my question is, is the DLC acquired on the first account available to this newly created account, or do I have to repurchase even though the DLC is already in the HDD from the same console? Thank you in advance.

well yes. i used the license transfer tool just to make sure i had the licenses on the new console. and when i sign in to the account that the DLC was purchased with, i can use the DLC but i was wondering if i still able to use the DLC mentioned above with a different account on the same console without being signed in to the account that purchased the DLC originally.

I don't believe MS Repair automatically transfers any license. They may transfer content if you get your HDD replaced, but even then I'm not so sure. You can check out our sticky post relating to License Transfers to see if that helps you out.

well its on a new console that i acquired after sending my old one in for repair. the old one was the original recipient of the DLC. but ive been informed that microsoft transfers the licenses from the old console onto the new one when they replace an old console with a new one. and just to be sure i transferred the licenses using the license transfer tool.

If it's on the xbox it was "origionally" downloaded on.
