    Does anyone know what would cause an installation error on apps? Its not on all apps. I've tried clearing cache and redownloading with no success. It gives the error cannot be installed on USB storage or SD card. Some apps are already installed but can't update.

    Could be they aren't supported for SD card storage. Move them back to your phone and see if that helps.

    Turn off your phone then turn it on let everything load then redownload and your problem should be solved.

    Where did you get the apps? Are they downloaded themed apps from the net?

    Did you clear the Market data in applications/ manage applications? Did you recently install a rom and not wipe everything?

    Just guessing trying to help you.

    Today I just had that issue with a game and rebooted and was able to download just fine. If it installs to sd card make sure you have enough free space.

    You could try menu> settings> applications> manage applications> all> market and try clearing cache and if that doesn't work try clearing data.

    Only other thing I could think of is uninstall then reinstall.

    I'd clear the data. It will ask you to accept the markets terms *again , just click accept. It has fixed some of my market issues.

    So I cleared the data and the apps that wouldn't update are working fine on my phone but not showing installed in the market. I also saw that it looks like my market updater and my certificate installer are gone. Is there a way to reinstall those?
