    Okay so I'm getting a lot of failed downloads when downloading from both the internet browser and when updating my apps from the market. Anyone know why that is I have like 100mb on the phone's internal memory and I have 14 gb on my sd card.

    Apparently this issue is not important for anyone to comment on. I've posted twice on XDA with no responses, and now I see here that no one has bothered to reply. I wonder if the issue is that rare? Even though this post is a century old, I wanted to state that I too cannot download anything from the internet. I always get a "download Unsuccessful".

    I'm not sure about the app issue but if you can download and install an app called download all files, you should be able to download anything from the browser.

    Thanks for your response! So then is this just an issue with the browser itself? because other browsers fail as well.

    Well, I just know that the stock android operating system prevents users from downloading everything off the browser and I didn't know about this until I tried downloading a rom and had this problem. After another member recommended this, it worked great and I have used it ever since.

    I completely forgot about this thread... Since I'm on a droid x I went to battery and data manager and turned off data saver.... Or get on a wifi connection... And that's hows I solved my issue

    Is there a memory card in your phone... Make sure that the card is firmly snugly inside the holder

    I had the "cannot install on . . ." problem, too. This page Fixing The "Couldn't Install On USB Storage Or SD Card" Problem On Android

    helped me. It talks about deleting some stuck invisible files like smdl2tmp1.asec.

    The article says you can delete the files using astro, but that's not what I found out. Astro couldn't see them, so I used a USB connection to a PC to find and delete the files.
