    Same problem. Tried repeatedly, but it won't download the update. One time, it had the progress bar going as if the update was downloading, but when it finished, it said it was unable to download update.

    When I put a game into my xbox 360 it disconnects me from xbox live and tries to down load an update that is not available. These are older games like Rainbow Six Vegas. Because it cannot find the update it will not allow me to play multiplayer. I can play the game in sigle player but cannot connect to xbox live. I can play the newer games like Army of Two. I have tried deleting the save games and resetting my gateway but nothing helps.
