    for the past 2 days my tablet fails to download from the android market.
    i can assess and click to download application's, but
    all that happens is that they appear to download and look like they are downloading
    but fail do do anything.

    i have googled and have found amonst others


    1. Press the Menu button and navigate to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications
    2. Select Gmail and then press the “Clear Data” button
    3. Go back and choose Gmail Storage, and then press Clear Data
    4. Go back and choose Google Apps, and then press Clear Cache
    but to no avail

    anyone else have problems

    first i have a zenithink zt-180. i ended up finding the instructions to update firmware to 1020 so i could get android market. since then i've downloaded a couple of dozen apps from the android market.
    the only issues i had was that i took out my sd card without doing the unmount and then i could no longer download anything because the card was not recognized. after removing and pushing it did finally recognize the sd card again and i continued my downloading from the android market

    i have only just received my sd card today.
    i did think that a card may be required.

    no problems downloading (except ones that wont install )
    only started 2 days ago.

    will try my sd card out see if that makes a difference

    there were other postings in the forum about checking to make sure your date and time was setup properly and that you had specific ports on the wifi setup correctly

    well then as a last resort do you have "reset" switch it will not erase anything on your tablet but will reset to factory standards.

    maybe a small hole next to my sd card slot is a reset button ?

    found out thats the microphone :)

    back to square one i think.

    i know its to do with market only .
    so i may make another google account and try again.

    i assume the market password in stored on my pad so i will look into deleting and
    enter the new password.

    i run 2.1. o/system.
    i could download and with my second tablet can still down load from the market !!
    next option is to remove every apk
    that i have on my tablet until it is the same as my second tablet, so they are the same to see if one of the apk's is blocking me.

    if anyone else has this problem post your apks to see if they compare .
