    I have had this same issue. If you select the app in My Apps in the Market, it instantly starts the installing. Kind of annoying but it works

    I have similar issue, I paid for a few apps and now they are not showing on my installed apps, luckily I had a backup of them and was able to reinstall them but they still do not show. I have wipe data, cache on market app several times now.

    I had the same issue with some apps.. Unmounting the sd card seems to have solved this. Annoying but a small price to pay to play angry birds!:)

    Not sure how I'm going to get swype to install since it does download on to the sd card...

    The Solution

    I had this issue several times before, the following will definitely resolve it.

    1. Clear the data/cache for the market app, it will speed everything up(downloads and installs)
    Settings-> Apps -> Manage Apps -> Market -> Clear data, Clear cache

    2. Pay attention to your CPU settings if you use SetCPU. I had my profile set to run a low max speed (400MHz) when the screen is off. Consequently, when updating a lot of apps from the market; they would download, but not install if the screen was off. I guess it wasn't enough processing power to do so. The minute I turn the screen back on, they install with no problem. This was actually my issue more than anything else.

    Hope this helps

    Already tried that and it did not work. My issue was related to how the sd card was formatted by previous roms...

    My issue was resolved by formatting the sd card in recovery mode. I then place my backed up files from PC back on to the sd card and its working fine now.
