Can anyone say whether Ill need the original discs for this? I still have the code that came with my game, but the disc is not in my possession now.

I'm just assuming it will be a download, no original disc required if you have the Code and/or the MS points?

Basing it only on Rock Band/Rock Band 2, I'd assume you'll need the disc. Unless you were able to import the tracks without having the disc, but I was under the impression you needed it.

Thanks for your reply, oh well, 400 xtra ms points isn't too bad consolation.

Do you have confirmation that if you don't have the DC disc, you can pay 400MSP to get all of the DC songs on DC2? Or is there an export cost?

I get this from Amazon where I preordered:
"Pre-order Dance Central 2 and get 400 free Microsoft Points to import songs from the original Dance Central."

Then at Xbox dotcom they say this:
"How do I import my Dance Central songs into Dance Central 2?

Launch Dance Central 2 game on your Xbox console.
Make sure you are signed into an Xbox LIVE enabled game profile.
From the main game menu, select OPTIONS.
Select REDEEM CODE.
Enter the 16 digit code printed on the back of your original Dance Central game manual. If you pre-ordered Dance Central 2 at a participating retailer, enter the token number printed on the digital receipt you received with the game (you might have this, you might not! If not, move on!)
Follow the on screen instructions to purchase the Dance Central Import Pack.
If you have a 25-digit pre-order code, follow the instructions you received to redeem that code for the 400 point value.
Song files will begin downloading automatically and will be added to your song library upon completion."


The bold part is why I thought I could just purchase the pack and not need the disc, but will have to wait and see. Hopefully this helps someone posting this here :)

From what I believe, and previous experience using Rock Band titles, you do not need the old disc, only the code and MS Points.

Any know where I can find a DC1 import code, without buying the game?

you don't need to have the DC1 dvd
just use the code writed in the DC1 manual and it will download a 200 mega pack with all dc1 song

Okay
- Dance Central 1 manual (16 digits) > Import DC1 songs into DC2
- Dance Central 2 manual (25 digits) > Import DC2 to DC3 (in the future)

Confirm that only the manual/code is needed, no need to switch discs.

I spoke to XBOX about this and if you bought it used then you're basically screwed. They said to buy a new one as they can't give out the code if you didn't get the manual. Kind of annoying as I liked a lot of the songs from DC 1..

I wonder if I could find an import code at GameStop.... Is that evil? Maybe.... But I have no plans to buy the old game because from what I've seen they're basically the same, I saw very little difference. I don't care too much about having all the achievements. But I suppose if I get all 1000G for Dance Central 2 I'd think about getting DC1 but I doubt that's gonna happen.

Do you just want the extra songs? If so, either find someone you know (or on your friends list) who has the first and isn't buying the second one. The code is inside the case, so if you bought it at Gamestop you wouldn't be able to return it for full price, since you have to open it. Not sure how cheap used copies of Dance Central are, but if it's under $30 then that's less than $1 per song, which is a good deal. If you haven't played the first one, just know that a lot of the songs feel like a step down from the second, in terms of difficulty and sheer involvement in the dance moves.

If yuo import the original songs do they have the original routine from the first game or are they different in some way?

Although you've probably figured this out by now you need a working code (if you buy it used you might end up with a used code which won't work). So long as you have the manual it'll be fine, you don't need a working disc. It also costs 400 Microsoft Points and you need a code. ;)
