Black Ops DLC and region errors

Hi guys n gals.

 

I have been attempting to download the DLC map packs for Black ops for a couple of days now to no avail, with Live stating that the download is not available in my region.

 

Ok here is the specs on my account etc.

 

Account region is UK

Actual region is Ireland

My ISP is Talktalk/Digiweb

 

I have tried clearing my HD Cache, deleting my Marketplace data, rebooting the console, redownloading, no luck.

I have tried changing my account information to match my Physical location now, i can change all information except the country!

 

Im really finding this frustrating, something which should probably be very simple appears to either be impossible or extremely difficult.

 

Can anyone throw me a bone please?

The below is your issue. The Black Ops content is REGION LOCKED. That means in order to access it your ACCOUNT, GAME DISC and PHYSICAL LIVE IN region ALL must match. Since your account region is UK and your physical live in region is IRELAND you will not be able to get the content with your current setup.

In order to get it you would need to create an IRISH account, add IRISH ms points and download the content. The IRISH account does not need to be Gold. So long as you don't change consoles your other account will be able to use the content.

So if i create an irish account will i still be able to use my existing profile or do i have to start from scratch again?

Oh, and perhaps i had a blonde moment, but are you saying that the 4200 points i purchased in the UK are worthless in Ireland, even though Microsoft allowed me to add them to my account.

No you can use 4200 ms points on any non region locked content on the uk account

All dlc is sharable on any profile as long as it is the purchasing console

But you will have to purchase the correct ms points for the Ireland account

Ok, thanks for that, but can i continue to use my existing profile and still have all my gamerscore?

Can it all be migrated to the new account?

nope nothing can be transfered between profiles only dlc when used on the same purchasing console can be shared

however your UK profile can use the content but cannot purchase it
