When I'm downloading a game, sometimes it will stop and say "pending"...

Any idea why this is? I'll get a message saying my download has stopped, and then when I check active downloads it says pending. After a few minutes it will start again.

My 360 is new and I got a new 320 gb Halo 4 hard drive off eBay. Could it be the Internet connection, the hard drive, or the network itself having issues?

I've never seen this happen with my PS3 on the same connection so I'm clueless.

It will stop downloading if you are playing an online game, even if its just for leaderboard updates.

If you're streaming video it'll stop downloading. Most games allow downloads in the background while playing single player but not ones like Borderlands because even single player is a private server.

Also, even in single player games it's normal to get that message in between levels as the game quickly connects for whatever reason. Even Portal2 does this.

It's a drop in connection to Live. Nothing surprising there.

It does it when I'm not doing anything else on the console. I'll have it on the active download screen watching the percentage go up while I'm on the computer browsing whatever. I'll hear a beep, look at the TV, and it will say download stopped.

Hmmm....that is interesting. If you're not using a wireless adaptor than I have no clue. My wireless used to do that some days but I finally moved and was able to plug it in.

There ya go. If you're using the computer downloading stuff or just watching a youtube video the xbox will be pausing because there isn't enough MB( or whatever Internet you have) to share between the Console and the computer. I know I get disconnected when I am downloading from my phone. They changed something with the last update. I think the xbox gets last priority when other devices are using the Internet.

Ah, so it's normal. I just wanted to make sure it wasn't a hardware issue since again I never saw this happen with my PS3. Unless it also stops but didn't give a message.
