    Last night I tried updating multiple Apps from the new market (angry birds and soul movie among others). The updates all failed with the following error - couldn't install on usb storage or sd card. I don't remember that happening with the old market. Has anyone else had this issue and do you know a way around it?

    Yes, try removing SD card, and installing without it. If that works, may need to format SD card, after backing up info, of course. Do you have any app backup apps on phone? If so, uninstall with SD card out, or use Astro File Manager to remove.

    A bug is now likely the case

    Is your problem fixed? Having update/download/uninstall problems today. It's the Market. I always test with downloading a freebie from Amazon - worked fine.

    I ended up just moving all my Apps back to the phone storage and all the updates worked.

    When you add up Google, Android, Verizon and HTC, it doesn't make sense that the Market works so poorly.

    The problem is back. I can browse and open files on the sd card so I think the issue is with the market app.

    Ok, this happened to me and I was able to fix it. Theres a bug and you have to remove it. first, plug your phone to your computer, go into your sd card using the computer (u have to use a computer), go into the file named Androidsecure, once u open the file called Android_secure you need to delete the file that part of its name is "sm1" in it. I forgot the whole name but part of the name is sm1....in my case it was the only file under the file named Android_secure. This is a bug thats hidden and the only way to see it is by plugging to your computer. Once u delete this file, all your apps will update and work. Believe me, it happened to me. Let me know how it goes.

    I don't know where you found that fix but it worked. The file had tmp1 in it instead of sm1, but sm was in there somewhere.

    Thanks for the tip.
