This problem is a little complicated as im not entirely sure what happened myself.
I decided to try the new Mass Effect 2 Arrival DLC (on Steam) so I went to the Cerberus network and logged in with what I thought was always my EA account. Somehow I ended up either creating a new account/created a new account sometime in the past without remembering, which the old DLC is connected to. I ended up buying Arrival without realising that I didnt have any of the other DLC, meaning when I open up ME2 it lists all the old DLC which is not available. I can't remember what my old account is.
So to play the new Arrival DLC I will have to buy another online pass which is a pain, but one of my questions is if the downloadable characters play any part in it? If I cant properly play it im not too bothered by it, even though I just wasted money.
The most important question I need answering is what happens when I want to use my ME2 save file in ME3 when it hits stores. Will i be able to transfer it even if I dont remember the associated EA/bioware account? I know Steam stores the save files, but it seems like there are so many angles to this situation that i just can't fathom.
Finally, is the Arrival DLC actually worth playing, and regardless, are there any important choices in it that could affect ME3? Would you say it would be ok to just watch the story on youtube?
My thoughts are all jumbled up at the moment so sorry for this incoherent mess of a post. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Cerberus is/was such a mess. I remember when I first bought DLC like a year ago it charged me 4 times for it, causing my bank to lock out my debit card.
Will ME3 use Cerberus?

Steam has the cerberus key tied to it. Right click MAss Effect 2 "view game key"
Sounds like a pain I do own ME2 but never played it I have however registered ME1 and ME2 to my Origin account.

The best thing to do is to try to find out your old account details, as it would be cheaper to re-purchase Arrival than to buy another online pass. To help with this, you could try - on the Bioware Social site - requesting a new password for each of the past e-mails you might have used for the game. If you haven't used any of the e-mails you request a password for, it will just deny the request. A process of elimination.
As for your saved game, I can't say for certain.
Is Arrival worth playing? If you really enjoy the ME universe, I would say yes, because it has a nice introduction to what is about to happen in ME3, although I am sure you already know. There is a decision, and I can see how it could be implemented into ME3, but whether or not it will be - I don't know. The DLC is short, however, which might make purchasing it twice even more frustrating.
Thanks guys ive found my old login. I guess ill just download Arrival again.[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]
