Hi, I started playing costum songs a year ago with an old xbox 360 and I had no problems playing DLC songs and costum songs with TU4. The problem came when I bought a new xbox 360 slim and transfered my costum songs to the new xbox hard drive with an USB and downloaded my DLC songs in the new xbox. 

 

The playlist shows both DLC and costum songs with TU4, but when I try to play a DLC song appears a message that says something like "Failed to load theme". If I install TU5 I can play DLC songs but if I try to play a costum song appears a message that says something like "unable to read disc" and I have to reset the game.

You have the customs on a flash drive, not on the HDD, right?

It's a licensing problem with the DLC for xbox. I've had problems with it for years. If you attempt to play dlc on an xbox that is not the one you purchased it from, it follows your gamertag so you can still play, but you have to be connected to xbox live to verify it's really you. So, since you cannot be on xbox live and run tu4, there is no way to play an old xbox's dlc along with customs.

 

Sucks for me, my original xbox died somewhere between the 2 alice in chains song packs so half are playable, half are not. Some other favorites, pearl jam 10, cars album, boston pack all on the wrong xbox license. It also sucks, if you switch back and forth between TU4 and TU5 on xbox live, alot of your scores may not hold over if you revert and it takes about a year to load all the "new" dlc stuff iff you have over a thousand songs.

 

I was actually wondering if you could copy the song files of the dlc on the hard drive to the usb stick to play as a custom,  but it seems like the file extension wouldn't be compatible.

No, you just need to redownload the license for those files. This is not a customs or Rock Band issue, any DLC for any game needs relicensing when you switch consoles. I think this has been asked and answered more than 10 times though.

Oh thanks. I hadn't looked in years. Microsoft was saying there wasn't a solution during all the red ring of death days. LOL
