I am getting error for almost all the apps while I am trying to install from web android market (market.android.com), it gives error "This item cannot be installed in your device's country.". But same time If I tries to install same application from my mobile then it installs successfully. So does anybody have any idea why it's giving this error ? (Note : I had installed new market and then uninstalled it. This problem starts after installation of new market only).

Mobile model : Samsung Galaxy 3

Country : India

You could try Market Enabler to fake being in the US and see if that helps, though it doesn't explain why this happens. –  Matthew Read Aug 4 '11 at 23:55
    
Can you check if there are more than one device registered in your market account? –  roxan Dec 3 '11 at 14:52

This is because the device location is detected from the SIM card in use.

I'm not sure how the web market location is detected. Perhaps look at using a proxy.

But if you wish your change your SIM location check this out: https://market.android.com/details?id=ch.racic.android.marketenabler

Such sites have geographic filters so you may need to access those sites in mobile which passes the IP barrier.
