Ensure there are no corrupt or half-downloaded files in your memory device. All corrupt/incomplete files will have a yellow circle with black exclamation mark in the middle. If you see this when you access your memory device, delete them. Clear the device cache by returning to the main storage page, highlight your device and press Y to begin. After this is complete, turn your console off for 30 seconds, power back on and attempt the download once more.

There are no corrupted files or anything. Cannot explain why it won't work. Even tried a system restore and went through initial set up again. Is there a way to permanently reset the xbox to factory defaults?

Have you had a new xbox and already downloaded the optional media update using a previous xbox?

If so then then you might need to do a license transfer to get it to work.

I remember having a similar problem getting the media update to download years ago. It only downloaded after a license transfer.

Now though you don't really have to download it manually as the xbox should download it automatically when needed.

There is an option to do a license transfer on the xbox dashboard.

I think it's in the accounts section although i'm not near my xbox at the moment so can't say exactly where.
