I've got a bizzare problem

#1 Posted by tmontana1004 (376 posts) -

Okay, I just bought Gears 2 and was given the Golden Hammerburst for free. I go home to enter the code and was sucessful, so I clicked download now. I had my Mirror's Edge demo still downloading so I had to click cancel all and redownload the hammerburst. My problem is that now I cannot redeem the code because it says it is invalid and there seems to be no other means of downloading it. Anyone know if there is a solution to my problem?

I have the same problem with my golden lancer code. It sucks.

Go to your account, then find Download history - the golden hammerburst should be the most recent item.  Download it again.

Maybe if you go into the Gears 2 section in the Memory bit of system settings. If it's listed as incomplete DLC then I think you can restart it...

Disregard that, topic was lying in tab and was old.

Dude, if that works, you will be my best friend!

EDIT------

That didn't work either. I get the same error message.
Apparently a ton of guys over on the EPIC forums are having the same problem. Link

Yah I've got the same problem. I think we just have to wait for them to fix it.

I tried re-downloading it five times and then it finally worked. I'm happy. :-)

This works: 

Take the disc out of the tray and close the tray.

Go to the System Blade ---> Select Memory

Press Y for Device Options

Enter this code:    X  X  LB RB X  X

This will refresh your devices.
