Okay, I tried downloading Halo Reach but it won't let me. I tried deleting it and redownloading it. But it doesn't work. I have enough memory in the Hard Drive. Does anyone know why or how to fix it?

Halo Reach Beta has been having a lot of problems with server overloads and massive amounts of people downloading it at once, Bungie has addressed this and said they are trying to fix the situation as soon as possible.

Also, Microsoft were having problems with the Marketplace downloads last week.
Theres a chance these problems are reoccurring.

I might know what OP means since I think I done it aswell.

When you click to play the Beta, just leave the download box alone, if you close the pop up guide box saying your downloading it, it stops downloading and you need to start again.

This would be beacuse it closes the pop-up box into a game, which stops downloads. - Am I correct?

Partially, sometimes it doesn't stop the download though and it'll just download in the background whilst you are playing. But sometimes it does stop the download, like with the Beta.

I'm trying that right now but I left the download box for 10 minutes and it's still at 1%. Should I leave it or play a game instead of waiting for it to download?

Leave it, I noticed the speedtest in your sig, that's what's making it take ages.
No offence or anything, but .5 Meg is really slow for an internet speed now.
