DLC through family sharing?
Hi there, according to this http://gyazo.com/1ba6de112f2df923727096cb904db789 , I downloaded all the dlc that my friend has, yet when I try to play the dlc, it says I don't actually have it. I'm curious because it made me download all of the dlc, but it won't let me play it. Any help/suggestions? Am I doing something wrong?

Obviously I know that, http://gyazo.com/10afb12bad11340e1f8e544826454a06

It still doesn't work.

Any insight at all would be helpful.. Also, for the person that helps me and fixes my problem, I will be rewarding them with a game, either a payday 2 dlc or Serious sam 2, their choice.

Unless something has changed, if you own a game, and someone shares that same game, you still can only access your version. Since your profile says you own Borderlands 2, that means with this account, you can only use DLC that you own.

I played it 1-2 months ago, but for some reason it doesn't anymore. I guess Steam made another bad update.

Ragan gave you the answer; you can't access a friend's DLC if you already own the game. As it says in the Steam Family Sharing FAQ:

A guest will have access to the lender's DLC, but only if the guest doesn't also own the base game.

I see... Will it work if I'm on a different account?

It will if that account doesn't have the game.
