Rapidshare Download Problem

Post by englishwhistler » Wed Oct 11, 2006 7:41 pm

Anyone help me please?

When I have a direct link to a file in Rapidshare - either a .wmv or a .rar file and copy and paste it into Avant Browser - nothing happens. I just get a blank page. However, when I use Fi**fox - I have no problems whatsoever.

Any ideas on what is causing Avant not to read any of these Rapidshare files?

Thanks

That loads the RS page that asks if you want to load the free or premium download option ..... are you not seeing this?

No, but I think if I add .html to any link it works so kinda answered my own question.

Thanks

Do you have the same issue with the Internet Explorer?

Secondary PC same as primary but with Windows 7 x64 Ultimate as the OS.

Yes, IE does the same thing.

Although, when using the .html method when I click on "Download from Network "ABC"" - nothing happens!!

Bizarre. Any ideas?

All of them - apart from the .html then I get the Free or Premium selection.
