    For the past 2 days neither my Epic or my daughters Epic will download and install any programs from the Market. Our phones will also not install updates. I tried 4g, 3g and WiFi. It shows it's starting download on the status bar and then just disappears and nothing gets installed....

    Clear data cache and reboot.

    Settings > Applications > manage Applications, then find market and clear user data and cache.

    Next, locate the file folders named ".android_secure" (it should be near the top of the listings).

    Click on and open up this ". android_secure " folder and look for a file named "smdl2tmp1.asec"

    Delete it! Destroy it! Kick it out of your life! It's what is causing the problems!

    Unplug your phone. Phone will say something like "preparing sd card." It could take a bit but after that you can update all the apps including those on your sd card and angry birds and download Rio hassle free.

    As there a a whole bunch of threads on this issue, please pass the fix on.

    Sent from my Evo - so there!
