Problems Downloading

Postby Romyra » Tue Sep 21, 2004 10:56 pm

I'm having the same problem that jinjue has. I downloaded vids normally up until a few hrs ago and then I started seeing them attempt to d/l via the media sidebar window. It's driving me nuts and when I attempt to "save target as" I haven't gotten through as yet. I am quite disheartened at the moment. I was having such a ball downloading.

Is there a limit to how many one can d/l in a day? I got 5 today before this problem started and now I can't get any. I haven't downloaded SP2 so I don't know if that is contributing to my problem, and I keep getting this msg:

Thanks for the link, but I was unable to open the page, it kept saying " page cannot be displayed," but I did some more searching and I found this link which gave some great advice on my problem as well as on some others which members may have.

Thanks again for the quick reply.

Yours,
Romyra.

are you using a download manager? a few of them will mess up downloading
check http://www.animemusicvideos.org/phpBB/v ... hp?t=34102
otherwise if the download fails, there should be a message on the download page that says "The download should have automatically started by now. If it did not, click here." right click the link and click "save as" or "save link as"

Hi.
I was wondering if anyone could help me.
See, each time I try to download a local video, it'll jump between a few pages, then send me back to the index. I'm signed in and everything, but it just won't let me download them.

Thanks,
Variabledx9

Here's a few facts that might be useful:

My Browser is Internet Explorer 5.5
My Connection is Highspeed DSL
My Download Manager is Download Accelerator Plus, but I'm not using it.
My OS is Windows ME

Um, I have a problem. I have now been here for two weeks and i tried to get a video that I have been waiting to. However, I got inturrupted and I had to cancel the download. Then, when I tried it again later with a different video and the same video it said "ERROR: You are attempting to download this video too soon after your last download attempt.". And it did that everytime I tried. I figured I had better wait, so I took a nap for about 4 to 5 hours and came back. Now, it's still doing it!

Help?
