I HATE GT5P downloading!

I live in Canada and have the Japanese version. When it was time to download an update, I would get extremely aggravated, since it would take endless attempts and hours, if not days.

I decided to look it up on the internet and came across a suggestion on a forum ( I believe) that suggested you disable the Media Server option, under "Internet Settings". I gave it a try, and like magic, the update download, was practically immediate.

I haven't had to download any other updates since then, so it could of been a fluke ( but that would be a really big fluke) but I would definetaly give that a try. Hope it works for you, like it did for me.

Good luck!
