It started this month, i start downloading a file and the download stops and fails at X%. Now i have to try to download a file like 4 times or more.

Trying to download 4 times a file of 30MB not big deal, but trying to download a file bigger than 300MB specially when it fails at 70, 80, 90% and right now im on my 7th try, SUCKS!!!!

Anyone else with similar problem?

hey i have had that once before, i actually had to tell a friend to help me with the download. I understand you are not supposed to use any downloads manager as this creates multiple connections and the servers automatically closes the session. you are recommended to download using a web browser.

I just used Google Chrome to download the files but since it was not working i downloaded a Download manager and it also failed.

my internet sometimes becomes very slow so i usually blame it for the downloading issues. maybe try a different browser and see.

I am getting this problem with large file… Download freezes at X%... Modem lights stop flashing… Then eventually it times out with…

“xxxfilename.xxx could not be saved, because the source file could not be read. Try again later, or contact the server administrator.”

I am in a rural area that ony has ADSL 1

Had to get a mirror link the first time this happened.

This is the second time (my second LARGE file) Guess I have no choice but to contact support every time I buy a file over 100MG
