    I had this problem as well, but it was before I was rooted. There is a solution but you have to use it every time you this problem.

    1) Before you go to install the app, go to phone settings---> SD&Phone Storage--->Unmount SD Card

    2) Go to market and and redownload/install app(s)

    3) Remount SD card after app(s) have installed.

    I hope this helps.

    Edit: I recall another member mentioning a way to fix this problem by deleting some files (have to be rooted to do so for those files), but I wasn't rooted at the time so I never explored it further, so look into that for a permanent fix.
