Error code 800233e8

220 Replies 50,820 Views Created 28-03-2013

Hi, 

 

Can ANYONE advise me what this error is? I'm trying to download the updat for Dead Space 3, update 1.02 I believe, and the download gets to 75% and I get the above error or it stays at 0% and then hangs when i try to cancel the operation.

 

Ive seen the topic appear on a few forums but there is never a solution as it looks like its a download issue rather than an item specific problem.

 

Any help would be appreciated 

 

Thanks

The download is corrupted. Follow the instructions in this YouTube video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXazz5In4mE - and try downloading again. If the problem still persists, then your HDD is at fault and needs replacing.

Before you get a new hard drive, is this error code happening with just MW2 installing or Is it with all games?

Try taking out the hard drive and re-inserting it.

Re: Error code 800233e8

Can you download patches for other games without issue?
