    some apps not installing

    I've been trying to install 9 innings baseball and some other app (i forgot which) on my x. they both download all the way, then fail in the installation phase. the error message i get is "Installation failed. Could not install on SD Card or USB mass storage."

    I've successfully installed a few other apps since seeing te error (though i pulled those apps, the ones in question were pushed from market.android.com).

    any ideas?

    to clarify, the apps your downloading are from the market app on your phone correct?

    initially, i accessed the android market from my laptop's browser and had the apps pushed to my phone. i then tried getting them directly from the market app on my phone, neither worked. I've had apps pushed and pulled that have worked since the failing of this one, this one consistently fails though.

    you are aware that in "mass storage" mode your phone unmounts your SD card making it unrecognizable by your phone. Mass storage mode acts like a USB thumb drive. You could do one of two things:

    Move the file from where it is downloaded on your computer to your SD card by dragging and dropping the file. Once its on your SD card disconnect it from the comp and wait for the SD card to remount. Once that happens find the file on your SD card and manually install it.

    or

    Try putting your phone in PC mode to see if it will transfer that way as PC mode doesn't unmount your SD card.

    Also if you are hooked up to your computer in mass storage mode trying to DL something from the market using your phone you may get the same fail message if it is trying to install something to your SD card.

    yes. I just tried downloading it directly from the market with my phone unplugged. still fails. the error message reads "Installation error: couldn't install on usb storage or SD card."

    Unmount your sd card. Download and install app from market on your phone. Mount your sd card. Problem solved.

    This worked, still confused about the problem though, and i hope it doesn't occur with other apps or when i update the problematic ones. Thanks.
