My OS is WIN XP(SP2). I use Outlook Express and also have Internet Download Manager (IDM).
I have been unable to download files through the free version of Rapidshare. I wait for the download indicator to appear, type in the requested code then click on the "Download" button. My IDM download box appears and when I click on "Start download" an error box showing: "Requested file does not exist. HTTP/1.1 404 not found."appears.
I was previously able to download files from this source however cannot recall what I might have done (i.e. new utility or program)that now precludes me from doing so now.
Would appreciate any assistance you can provide in this regard.TYI, mchaggis.

Iit may be that Rapidshare does not approve of your downloader application (especially if you are using the "free" download). Try downloading the file without using IDM.

Thankyou jdweed,
That is exactly the case. I cancelled out IDM for Rapidshare downloads and tried a download which took place without problem. I should have read the small print on the Rapidshare site which specifies that only their premium account accepts download accelerators. Thanks for your help and sorry for the inconvenience. mchaggis
