The only thing i can think of is that you may have inputted another credit details in old account. try thinking, maybe something in the card's details has changed since then, and now it doesnt fit the old definitons.

Cannot use console until subscription payments are udated


Hello! Your Xbox is simply telling you that in order for you to access any of the online content available for the Xbox 360, you will have to update your subscription payments by adding a valid credit card to the account credentials so that Microsoft is able to charge you for your usage of their online service, Xbox Live. Until you update your subscription payment option, you cannot access the online content. To update your information on the account, go to Xbox.com, log into your account and then head on over to account details and then "Payment Options" and then update your information by entering your valid credit card information. Hope this helps! Good luck! :)

How to set up Xbox LIVE for beginners.


First of all, you need either a valid credit card, or a prepaid Xbox LIVE card.

Alright, now you need high speed internet that uses an Ethernet cord to bridge your connection. Plug into the back of your console. (There is a gray Ethernet cord supplied with most Xbox's.)

Plug it into where the "Ethernet cable" arrow is pointing, the bottom port. The top one is an USB port.

Now, go to your dashboard and go to your setting. (All the way to the right on your main dashboard channel) Run a connection test to verify that you have a connection to Xbox LIVE. If everything good, then let's move on.

Press the center guide button on your controller and choose "Join Xbox LIVE". Have your valid credit card and/or your prepaid Xbox LIVE card ready. Put in all of your personal details. Once you have all of your personal details and preferences filled out, then you're done!

!!!IMPORTANT!!! IF YOU DON'T WANT YOUR CHILD OR WHOEVER IS USING THIS TO CHARGE A LOT OF MONEY TO YOUR CREDIT CARD BUYING MICROSOFT POINTS, WHICH IS MICROSOFT CURRENCY ON THE XBOX FOR THE MARKETPLACE, THEN DON'T INSERT YOUR CREDIT CARD NUMBER, JUST USE A PREPAID CARD!

I keep getting erros when im trying to redeem my 3 month card what do i do?


You receive this error when a secondary account in a Gold Family Pack subscription tries to add a credit card or buy Microsoft Points. Secondary accounts cannot add credit cards to or make purchases with cards over Xbox LIVE. The primary account can add a credit card and transfer points to the secondary account. For more information, read Questions about billing and Microsoft Points for the Xbox LIVE Gold Family Pack.
