My downloads are corrupted for some reason.

    Title says it all. I have downloaded MW3, cod 4 mw and rdr 1 (twice) but it shows up as corrupted. Why is that? No error codes or no'in. I have 109gb left on my hdd so it's not a space concern.

    EDIT: I watched as the game downloaded, when it was done it showed me THIS for a split second. (Not the exact one, i made a mockup, but still the same message it gave me.)

    Delete them and redownload them.
    Do not turn off your 360 whilst they're downloading.
    If the network falls away, the 360 will just turn off, ceasing the downloads, hence they show up corrupted.

    Then try again.
    The only reason why downloads would show up corrupted is if the network drops during transfer.
    Unless your HDD is about to die but then you'd notice different problems as well.

    Keeping the 360 on whilst it's downloading is a good idea.

    It is on. All i've done is that i've let the screen dim down and turned off my controller. Otherwise it's ON.

    Good luck with it.
    Hope it downloads properly this time.

    I've had it happen meself as well, quickly figured out that if the 360 is in sleepmode downloading titles and the network suddenly drops, the 360 would shut off and corrupt the download.

    Try downloading something large on your computer, I remember my old adsl connection would cause corruption when I tried to max the connection.

    If you have a spare usb drive, you could also try using that (if its possible, its been a while since I tried anything like that on a 360).

    Try deleting the cache on the HDD.
    Try it on a wired connection.
    Try downloading the game to a USB drive.
    Try it at a friend of yours place.

    Other then that, there's not much you can really do.
    I highly doubt it's the hardware of the 360.

    It still won't download...
    I'm running Ethernet, I've restarted 65,000 times, I've tried downloading on a usb drive, And how would the game possibly be regionlocked if the account is norwegian and i'm swedish??
    i'm losing my damn mind...

    Tried it at a friends house maybe?

    Otherwise you'll have to contact MS with the problem.
    They can offer more insight then I.

    MS doesn't care about the problem.

    Ask for their superiors.
    Very small number of games are region locked, very small..

    Yes.
    Just tell them a game won't install you purchased on the marketplace, give them the details they need.
    If they give you a standard response, tell them you tried everything and if they try to hang up, ask for their superior.

    Did you get the games on the Marketplace in your country?
    I had that issue trying to download a Japanese game on my console
    and had to trick my 360 into believing i was logging in from Japan to finish the download

    Norway is right beside sweden and both contries are PAL based. NOTHING should be region locked in my case.

    Of course they do, but WHAT can they do? Give me a refund? Give me a free game?
