Re: downloading

Are you just clicking on the attachment or are you right-clicking > Save As?

Re: downloading

Make sure you do a Force Refresh of the page between trying different methods or you may get the same results (since it's cached).

Try using a bittorrent client instead of a download manager.

You're trying to plow a field with an ink cartridge.

Get the right tool, and you'll be all set.

General info is here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BitTorrent_(protocol)

and everything else you'll need is in my sig.

Happy torrenting!
