Kind of hard to fallow exactly what you are trying to do, are you trying to move Lego Star Wars 3 to your secondary Xbox 360 S (kid's)? Or just a game that you used to have on the primary (yours)?

.

Xbox DLC (downloadable content) works in a strange way, to protect content and users. If a piece of content was bought on your Xbox, under your profile, ANY profile can play/use that piece of content on THAT Xbox. Once it is moved, only your profile (the profile that purchased/redeemed the download code).

It seems strange, but you can thank software pirates.

Yes what Swift said. DLC's are licensed to your Xbox and account. You can transfer information to a new hard drive but your account must also go with that information. This prevents users from buying it once and either giving it to others or selling it multiple times
