I have been having some problems with MD, and these really started, looking back, with the introduction of max adsl here in the UK.
The problems vary and are not consistent but range from the odd pause to a complete freeze.
I have used a 'net meter' to monitor my connection and have found that the speed is very 'wild'.
It actually shows as huge highs and lows, 6Mb down to 0.3Mb and back etc. All in seconds too.
This is normal for this new type of Broadband.
Could this be the cause of my problems.
Please try the following:
1. Run Mass Downloader, go to menu File | Default Project Properties
2. Set the Threads number to 2 or 3. This is enought for such fast connection
3. Click the OK button, create the new Project and test your download
Please write us about the result. Thank you.
I had it set at 4 threads, so I reduced it to 2.
Seems ok now.
Good. Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions.
