Having trouble downloading or purchasing the Export Pack?

This code has already been redeemed by another player: You can’t purchase the Export Pack with a used copy of Dance Central if someone else already used the export code. Each game has a code valid for one use. If someone already has used the code, you'll need to purchase a new Dance Central game in order to purchase the Export Pack.

Invalid code error: Make sure you correctly entered the code in Options (see step 4 above).

You aren’t prompted to purchase the Dance Central Export Pack: You may have entered the code from the Dance Central 2 manual. Repeat step 4 above, making sure to enter the code from the original Dance Central game (Dance Central 1).

Problems downloading the Export Pack: If you have problems downloading the Export Pack, please see Troubleshoot Xbox Live download problems.

Lost manual or redeem code card: If you’ve lost the Dance Central 1 manual or the redeem code card that came inside the game box, contact Xbox Support using the Assistance information at the bottom of this screen.
