You need the purchasing gamertag on the console so are you 100% using the same console and the same gamertag you purchased the DLC with?.

If not then you need to have that account on your HDD or it will not work.

If so go into memory> games> Fallout and delete the DLC files.
Then go to your account management page on your console, the DLC will be listed there and you can re-download it for free.

You could also try clearing your cache. (Try this before deleting the DLC and see if it has helped, if not try the first suggestion).
Go to memory> highlight the HDD> press Y> select yes.

I think not having your console connected to Xbox Live 'may' be the problem. I've found from my own experience, that to use DLC associated with games, having the console connected online enables a sort of 'software check' somewhat akin to the server connection for games like Mass Effect 1/2 and Dragon Age: Origins/II etc.

I had Fallout 3, and trying to play it without being connected to Xbox Live, told me I had no DLC available (Exact same thing happened with Saints Row 2 as well), so if you can somehow connect your console to Xbox Live that 'should' fix your problem MicxCheck.

Perhaps try deleting the DLC from your harddrive and then re-download them.
