I have encountered this in the past but the Market tends to let me download after a couple of attempts. I have read in another forum:

I am not sure if this will help. I have seen Market issues resolved with clearing the market:
Settings> Applications>Manage Applications > All (Scroll to Market and select it. Clear the cache. If that does not help go back to the market and Clear Data.

Same location as the clear cache.. Hmmm There should be a button to Clear Data under the market Menu.. Settings> Applications>Manage Applications > All.

Should be right above the Clear Cache button. If it is not lit you have not data to clear. You can reboot the phone and see if that allows the market to download.

I figured it out

Apparently, google talk is required to be running for the market to function porperly. I had recently froze Talk, Google talk service, and google talk storage and thats what caused the market to stop working. Thanks for your help.
