    (360) Some games loop or get corrupted at 80% download


    Bought Red Dead Redemption directly through the Xbox 360's marketplace and now I can't download it past 80%. Apparently according to some people this could be a region lock issue, but I bought the game from my country's store using my currency, didn't change
    my console's locale in many years (my country was not supported back when I got the 360). Tried buying Just Cause 1 and to 2 (each cost 1 dollar) just to see if all new purchases have the same issue. Just Cause 1 downloaded fine while 2 got the same download
    loop as RDR. Tried DLing games I purchased years ago and some of them show the same problem - Darkness, Far Cry 2, Crackdown 2, Just Cause 2. Tried many things - clearing cache, rolling back system updates, deleting unfinished download files, deleting marketplace
    data and also changing IP when it reaches 79% download. I also tried letting it loop through the whole night only to find out it stopped downloading with a corrupted file. I dunno what to do anymore. I can't even buy those games from a different region as
    it says that I already own the game.

    I thought maybe changing the console's locale to something else (maybe the first location I had set when I got the 360), I have no idea what to do, I can't even repurchase the game...

    :)

    (360) Some games loop or get corrupted at 80% download

    Thank you for your reply, I tried unplugging everything, leaving it off for half an hour and it didn't help, I am also certain I have enough space on my HDD. I actually chatted with microsoft support but their response was "Do a hard reset, if it doesn't
    work then, the problem is with your network", then he instructed me how to do the reset (hold the sync and eject button on the console) but nothing happened, no option to do a reset, I have an Xbox 360 Elite. All this makes me really sad, as I paid for something
    that doesn't work :-( and this problem happens to other people as well, not just me.

    EDIT: found a reply by somebody, which might be the cause of the problem, but doesn't offer a solution for me:

    "That's very significative. I had this same problem, that Microsoft couldn't resolve, I had to bypass it by myself. It was an issue with my ISP. I tell you what I did, then I tell you why.

    When I was at 78%, I stopped the download (not cancel) then I shared my mobile internet connection to my Xbox and let it pass the 79% point until the end. Then you can go back to your home WiFi connection.

    The problem was caused because my IP address was seen as if it was from another country by Microsoft, that caused the issues. I used my mobile connection to avoid that, but I only had a 1GB plan so I couldn't download the whole game with it, and I
    had to do the first 78% by the usual way.

    This is caused because of the lack of IP4 addresses, ISPs are buying or using IP formerly owned by other companies or assigned to other countries. Well I suppose that's not a very good explanation but you can google for it.

    Edit: you can try to connect to go to someone's else wifi (different ISP if possible), that's how I verified I could download the game."

    I don't have a wifi adapter, so this doesn't help me.

    Sorry to hear about the issue you are having. If you haven't already, completely shut down your Xbox. While it is off, reset your internet router (power down/turn back on). Turn everything back on. Check you have sufficient storage for the new download
    and restart your download. I'm also linking a support page with information on download stop errors and how to contact Microsoft Xbox Support if you continue to have issues.

    https://beta.support.xbox.com/help/xbox-360/store/download-stopped-error-on-Xbox-360

    I hope something here helps.

    Best wishes,

    Hi There,

    Some games seem to give users this error and it seemed to be caused by region lock error. It might not be your case, but there is some more information in this thread if you would like some more information.

    Jade Empire don't download fully

    I try to download Jade Empire game for xbox 360, the download stop at 80% the conssula couldn't continue the download even though I try,
    I get a message that the game is corrupted, I clear the cache and return on the process with the same results.

    Please help!
    I have had this happen before. If the game file is corrupted, you will need to reinstall the game. As stated by someone else, you should also try downloading another game to make sure you system is working properly.
