View Full Version : Filesonic Corrupt Rar's with Download Studio

03-06-2011, 01:17 AM
When using download studio with Filesonic, rar archives are always corrupt with bad crc errors. However when I download the same rar's just using the standard browser download function, the Rar's extract perfectly.

I have tried many different rar archives and in all cases, the download studio ones are corrupt from Filesonic, yet the standard browser downloads pulling the exact same files extract with no errors.
I have no problem with download studio rar's when pulling files from rapidshare, hotfile and megaupload - all come down and extract perfectly, it ONLY with Filesonic that this happens.

I have a premium account with Filesonic that I just purchased, so surprised I am seeing this when other file sharing sites work without this issue. Would add that both the rars from download studio and normal download process are the exact same size.

Hopefully someone here has experienced this and found a solution!

take a look at this post.
it's not only you, but me and those around me who use download studio have the same problem.
it seems that download studio fails to pickup cookies from filesonic.com

I tried downloading some rar files from FileSonic using Firefox and then DownloadStudio and the files were identical. Could you please provide us with the url of one of the files that is downloading as corrupt?

Update: A new version of DownloadStudio (v6.0.11) has just been released and it includes improved support for Filesonic. You can get the latest update using the "Check For Updates" menu item located under the Help menu in DownloadStudio, or just download the installer from http://www.conceiva.com/downloads and it will upgrade your existing version.
