  1. Xbox 360 game download reaches 79%, then restarts at 0%


    Hello

    I recently purchased the 360 game Risen through the marketplace, and the download was progressing along as it does. Once the download reached 79%, the progress reset itself back to 0%, and started over, and continued to do this multiple times. I've tried
    the usual methods of fixing Xbox 360 issues, (cleared cache, re-download profile, etc), and still I have the same issue. I have more than enough hard drive space, so that isn't the issue, and my internet connection is fast and stable.

    I've been reading similar threads on several sites regarding the same issue, and the general consensus is that this some type of region-based issue. I've never messed around with regional settings, and everything pertaining to my xbox and account is, and
    has always been, based in the USA.

    At this point, I'm not sure what else I could do to get things moving along, so any help that anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    :)

    Xbox 360 game download reaches 79%, then restarts at 0%

    EDIT: I'm not quite sure what happened, but after the last failed attempt downloading (which was shortly before my recent post), I just let the download keep going, starting from 0%. It got back up to 79%, and then, out of the blue, POP! Risen downloaded.
    It hadn't done that with previous attempts, but thankfully it managed to resolve itself. Again, thanks M3tal for your reply.

    I'm not sure if there's a way to close the thread or not, but if there is, please feel free to do so :)

    Hello M3tal Daz3, thank you for your reply.

    The link you posted was one of the many pages I had come across while looking for a solution. Thing is, I'm not getting any error messages during my download, it simply goes from 79% complete to 0% complete, and starts over as if I had just began the download.
    While the download is active, I'm not doing anything else on my console, or my laptop, so nothing should be interfering with the download.

    As far as the possible solutions mentioned in that link, my console has the latest version update, my internet connection is, as I mentioned, fast and stable, and I've restarted the download, at this point, at least a dozen times, getting the same result
    each time.

    I appreciate the help, but sadly I'm no closer to figuring out what in the world is going on :(

    Thank you

    Glad the game got downloaded. Xbox 360 is an old console so there are tons of bugs unfortunately.

    I get the same problem. Download reaches 79%, goes back down to 0%. Then will re-download back up to between 70%-80%, then drop to 0%. Then it won't download at all.

    Fable 3 !

    Same problem here: the download keeps restarting when reaching 79%. I already wasted 45GB of data and I still don't have it!

    I tried:

    -canceling the download, then restarting it by browsing to FableIII on Xbox Marketplace and select "Download again"

    -canceling the download, then restarting it by browsing to FableIII on Xbox.com and select "Download to Xbox 360"

    -canceling the download, then restarting it by browsing to "Download history" on the Xbox 360 and download again.

    -canceling download, deleting the partial download on the hard drive and try again

    -deleted the partial download on the hard disk without canceling the ongoing download

    -cleared the system cache

    -deleted everything under "System" (which includes marketplace-cache etc.)

    -deleted my account on the Xbox 360 and downloaded it again

    -using a different wireless network

    -connecting the Xbox 360 directly to the modem by cable

    -Pulled the Xbox 360's plug for 20 seconds

    The problem remains, I'm out of options... please help!
