    When in the Market app, press Menu and it will give you the option to choose the account.

    Get your password reset? Best I got. I didn't even know there was an @youtube.com email address.

    Unless I'm reading your post wrong...

    Well tried that my google account is linked to youtube. I go back to the screen that comes up when I click on android market and put the password in any password for that matter brings up one of those crooked lettered verification codes. I put the code in and that takes me back to the "incorrect password or your account changed" screen

    try settings>applications>manage apps>market then clear cache and data. that usually sorts out any misbehaving apps

    Or simply remove the stupid youtube account from accounts and add a google one.

    Saved my butt.

    You used to not be able to do this in the old market as far as I could tell, and so I had joined the ranks previously of those who had switched to a different google account and couldn't do anything about it on their phone without a data reset or without contacting developers about refunds and repurchases. This time it randomly switched on me for some reason and now it's back. So glad. Because I have *THIS* many apps on my proper google account, and only *this* many apps on the wrong one. lol.

    Well I opened a app that you can upgrade. The market opened and asked a yes or no austin pushed yes and now it's using the correct google account.

    Does your Market look like the pix in the article link below? If not, that article has a download link. If you're uncertain on how to manually install an app, reply back and one of us can help:
