    I went to update some apps today and none would download. Anything I try to download just hangs with an empty bar that says Starting Download. What can I do to fix this? I've logged into talk on my phone, tried force closing the market, clearing the cache, etc. what else can I do?

    Did you try clearing the market data? or it could just be a problem with your rom

    clear market data worked great-thanks

    i had several download and update problems and i joined the forum just to say thanks

    i tried to clear the cache, i downloaded couple of apps suggested on the web

    tried to uninstall

    nothing worked till i went to settings, apps, all, market, clear data
    now works fine
    may have lost my auto search for updates but i imagine my apps will let me know or i can always check on my favs

    thanks forum geeksdancedroid
