Do you mean a pre-paid credit card?

If not, Xbox does not accept debit.

IMO, don't attach a debit card with your account if it's possible to do so... I think it's risky. People already have loads of problems with their credit cards linked to their account so if it's your debit card... even worse!

I use my visa debit card and it works good for me, at first I was having problems too but it was because I skipped a question when filling out my information so make sure all your information is correct and you didnt skip past anything and you're all good to go. And also check your credit card statement each month because I heard in some cases they'll keep charging you

I believe you can... I used my visa debit card to activate my account.  Give MS a call and they can tell  you why exactly its not accepting your card.

It should if the debit card has a Visa logo.

Not as far as I know.  I am pretty sure it has to be a Visa or Mastercard.

Debit Cards with the Visa logo should be accepted as long as it is not an International Bank. Again, should. I used mine from start, but then MS did some policy changes and now the bank from Puerto Rico is considered International, even though PR is part of USA, and no longer acceptable. This also happend to a friend who actually has a Visa, not Debit, and it's no good since it's from a Puerto Rico bank. So, as long as it's from a Bank in the 50 states, you should be good.

Yes, one can use a Visa debit card for his Xbox Live account.
