View Full Version : Filesonic Downloads

I have still some problems with DownloadStudio while trying to download from FileSonic.
Since the problem is slightly different with the one in my previous post,
I'd rather to start a new thread.

Here's a file that I try to download from Filesonic.

If I open Downloadstudio, create a new job and paste the link in the url textbox, the file downloads smoothly and fine.

But If I paste the link in Firefox's addressbar and press Enter key and select DownloadStudio in Firefox's download window,
( Or simply click the link above in any browser )
DownloadStudio shows the hash (the image bellow) as the file name and the downloaded file is a 7K file.
When I open this downloaded file with notepad, it contains Bad Hash only.



Firefox 4
Windows 7
Any kind of advice is much appreciated.

It looks like FlashGot is not passing the fileSonic cookie to allow DownloadStudio to download the file, we will investigate this to see what is happening.

It is not about Flashgot. I dont have it and have the same result as vip_shadow. Filesonic just dont work with DownloadStudio. Neither with Firefox, nor with IE.

Are you clicking on a link that is being caught by DownloadStudio's click monitoring or are you pasting a link into DownloadStudio? Do you check the 'Remember Me' box when you login to FileSonic?

I tried click with monitor as well as pasting a link directly to DownloadStudio. Still getting the same result.

Do you have 'Tools->Options->Connection->HTTP->Use cookies to assist downloading files from web servers' checked? From the image it looks like the login cookie is not being sent with the url so it is not resolving to the correct type.

Yes, I have.

I finally worked it out. I deleted cookies for filesonic and made again a new one. When I click on file with middle click to open on another page, result is as I posted above. But when I left click on the file as select Download with Flashgot, everything works fine.
But thank you for your quick respond a support.
Pro user.

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.
