Question: DLC is not showing up in-game on the PS3 after it has been successfully downloaded. What can I do?
Answer: Here are some things to check if DLC (downloadable content packages) is not showing up in-game on your PS3 after it has been successfully downloaded:
1. Check to verify that the DLC has been installed to the PS3, and not just downloaded in the background. To do this, scroll to the Game Data tab in the PS3 XMB (System Software) and then select "Game Data Utility". Then select Red Dead Redemption. Look for any RDR content that needs to be installed, and then select it and choose to install.
2. Check to verify that the region of the disc matches the region of the DLC. If your game's product code begins with BLUS, you have a Region 1 disk (US/North America). If the product code begins with BLES, you have a Region 2 (Europe) disc. If your product code starts with BLAS, you have a region 3 (Asian) disc. Downloadable Content is region-locked, meaning that it will only show up in-game if it matches the region of the disc. If your PSN account is registered in a different region (based on the address you provide when signing up) from your disc, you will not be able to use the DLC with that disc.
Note: Rockstar Games does not have access to administer Playstation(R)Network refunds or credit transfers in the event of accidental wrong-region purchases. We recommend contacting Sony Customer Service directly.
For free DLC packs such as Myths & Mavericks / Hunting and Trading Pack for Red Dead Redemption, note that you would be able to download the content using a new, free, PSN ID registered to the correct region. That content would still be accessible when logged into your original PSN ID.
