forza 5 won't patch

I bought forza yesterday and the game installs but then goes to " forza 5 needs an update" . It stays on "getting ready" then after 5 mins it stops and says there is a problem. I have uninstalled, I have powered down and removed the power source. I then had all my apps stop working after awhile. So I did a system reboot and wiped the hard drive and everything all works fine again except forza won't patch. Dead rising went fine, same with fifa. I disconnected from the internet and forza will play but cannot update. As soon as i put the wifi back on the game tries to patch and that's it. Any help?

I have exactly the same problem. Annoying the hell out of me. There's only so much you can do without the internet connected

Try and clear the Blue Ray drive cache. Microsoft had me do this on a support call when i was having another issue. Apparently this cache is much more than just a back up of where u left off in your movie.It caches much of the background operations, install attempts, boot failures, etc.

There was a suggestion in the forum that when you are in the screen where the orange car, hold down LT, RT, LB, RB and then press Y. There will be a message appear to ask you whether you want to clear. Beware that after clearing will clear all your progress and start from the beginning. I tried it and it works for me.
