    try force stopping the android market, and then clear the cache for the market. It should then download correctly for you. Both of those actions can be performed under settings - applications - manage applications - all applications tab.

    Here you go:

    1. From the home screen Open settings
    2. click applications
    3. click manage applications
    4. Click "all" at the top of the window
    5. Scroll through the list and click on "market"
    6. Then click force stop
    7. Then click clear cache if it's not greyed out
    8. Back all the way out and go back into the market and it should install correctly.

    Yea the market kind of stinks on honeycomb to be honest. I sometimes have to reboot once or twice to get things to update correctly. What version of the market are you running though? I seem to remember the last update to it fixed a lot of my issues with it.

    Hi there
    I did a factory reset
    I was just worried that i would not be able to re install my Volume + app
    I had a direct link to the .apk file
    But it worked just fine
    I am re installing all the apps through the market
    Hopefully zinio will re install now!~!!!
    And the angry birds seasons that i wanted
    What do you mean what version of the market?
    My tablet in canada is only 3.0
