Hi,
I find something strange, and perhaps u can help to explain ...
days ago, I visit a site and download its files using mass downloader v3.1.607, its download map show multiple sessions proceed concurrently. However lately, the download map show only one download session in the map ?? Why is it so ?? Is there any setting that might allow mass download ??
Is there any trick to circumvent this problem and resume use of multiple download session ??

thank

Dear Matthew,

Thank you for writing us.

Mass Downloader tries to use multiple connections for the resume even if it remembers that server did not allow them in past. Just in case if now the server name resolves to the other physical server and this new one supports resume.

In your case it seems that the new physical server does not support resume.
Could you please make the download log file to check this?

To make the downloading log please open "logging.reg" file from the
http://www.metaproducts.com/download/logging.zip archive.
Download Express will create the log file in the downloading folder. It will
have the same name as the downloaded file and the .LOG extension. When this problem repeats,
please find the corresponding log file, pack it using WinZip or similar application and
email it to support@metaproducts.com with a short problem description.
Then you can use "Nologging.reg" file to switch off the logging feature.

Thank you for your help.
