    It just hangs and keeps saying "Starting Download..."

    Any ideas on how to fix? Happens every now and then but haven't been able to install anything in days.

    Try this, it may or may not work, go to Menu>Settings>Applications>Manage applications, now select the "All" tab and find "Market" in the list and select it, now press "Force stop" then "Clear cache" and finaly press "Clear data", now go all the way back to the home screen then launch the market.

    Hope this helps!

    Found a solution, seems if you do a "Sync" of your google account in Settings, Accounts & Sync, then it sorts it out. Very annoying though still! Another work around is have Auto-Sync on via a widget

    Well that's an easier solution, glad you got it sorted.
