GTA IV: Can't download, stuck at 1%

I bought the GTA IV through live, they had a deal going on for 22.49$ or something.

Pay via credit card, start the download.  After this point, the game shows up in 'active downloads', but is stuck at 1%. 

After about a minute or so, a notification appears.  Pressing the center button brings up the download screen, says "can't download this item."

I've deleted the incomplete game (only a few KB ends up getting downloaded before it fails), clearing the cache and marketplace data.  Any ideas?

Reseating the harddrive and trying a direct connection to the modem helps (if applicable).

With reseating, take off/out your hard drive, boot up without it, turn off, put harddrive back in and start up.

Since the system update, this has been fixing a lot of odd billing and downloading errors.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
