Why do downloads 'disappear' sometimes?

This is so frustrating. I had Dead Space bought for a while on demand and deleted it some time ago. I wanted to redownload it and play it again. I left the console on for a little and it got to 50%. I watched a movie on my computer and realized I could turn the Xbox off because I had background downloads on. When I turn it on back on a few hours later I'm about to get into some Dead Space and I realize it's not download. There's nothing in 'active downloads' either. How frustrating!! How can something just disappear like that?

Have you actually turned background downloads on?

its happened to me too. i believe it occurs when the connection is (however briefly) interrupted.
