Download Express and Rapidshare.com

Hi, I'm a very satisfied user of DE, the only thing I miss is the code recognition to Rapidshare.com (like Rapget).
If I download a file from the web page (I have a premium account) it works fine, but if I want to put many files in the Project list of DE and let it download in sequence, all the files I get are of 5Kb size.
Is there any possibility to avoid the problem or to put one option in next versions?
I would like this bacause DE perform better than Rapget...

I use Win Xp and Firefox

Thank you for the attention

Roberto Venturi,

Thank you for writing us.
Do you mean you want to see the code autorecognition in Download Express?

I think it would be a good thing, in this way I think is possible to download multiple RAR ecc. without be forced to start manually the download for each file.
In other words I would like to have the possibility to download many files from Rapidshare.com using the project list like I do from other free sites.
Please excuse me if I'm wrong, I'm not a programmer.

Thank you for your attention

We tested Download Express with the Premium Rapidshare account. It works just fine.
Do you have problems with Premium account?

Thanks,
Alexander

I'm in the same situation, couldn't realize how to make DE works with my RS premiun account to download a list of files in sequence.

I've installed DE 1.9.0.341 and DE plugin 1.1.13 for firefox.

By the moment the only alternative is to start the download of each file manually (go to the RS file address, press premiun and select the RS server, all this each time I want to download a file)

For example, could you please explain me what should I do to download in sequence 20 RS links using DE?
Where do I add those links? I already tried using DE project list but like Roberto said doesn't work with RS premiun accounts, I only gets 5KB files.

Thanks in advance for any help and best regards.

Could you please use Internet Explorer to login to your RS account? Then test your download list.

Thanks,
AlexanderBa.

I did it but doesn''t works neither, I still getting 5KB files.
Anyway I really don''t want to back to IE while I''ve firefox.
I think that the firefox plugin needs some improvements in order to works fine with RS premiun , and the project list should be able to import list of links in a txt instead have to load 1 by 1.
AlexanderBa 05/13/2008 03:33 am
Download Express is the simple freeware application. It doesn''''t have this feature (import from txt). You may try Mass Downloader to do this.

Regarding FireFox - could you please test the updated plug-in? You can download it from: http://www.metaproducts.com/download/mpint.xpi

Hi,

I currently am having problems with downloading from rapidshare(Premium) using DE. It used to work OK a couple of minutes ago until all of a sudden my downloads start completing themselves in a frenzy. I checked my DE projects list and I noticed that all of my downloads forced complete at roughly 5KB each.

Please advise. Thanks!

Regards,

Bill

Bill,

Thank you for writing us.
What integration method do you use?
Please try to switch to the Alternative Integration Method in the Download Express Options dialog, Integration tab.
Please write me about the result. Thank you!

Hi,

Thanks for the response. I''ve always been using DE with Alternative Integration Method switched on. I tried to switch it on and off and I still get the same result. The only workaround I have right now is to copy each of the rapidshare URLs and setting them up again for download. Its quite tedious if you need to fix hundreds of links.

Thanks,

Bill

By the way, the same goes with the Meta Products Mass downloader. I keep getting premature downloads at a max of 8KB. There must some kind of virus or something. IT doesn''t happen with normal download though, just with your products. Is there some grace period for purchasing DE/MD after which, it will not function as advertised? Its okay with me to purchase this really good product, but do let me know if this is the case, because it was working perfectly well a few days ago when i first installed it.

No, there is no any difference in functioning of our products before and after purchasing.

Could you please test the recent build of Mass Downloader?
You can download it from: http://www.metaproducts.com/download/mdbsetup.exe
This is a beta version, we plan to publish the release version in day or two.

Please write me about the result. Thank you.

I tested the new plugin for FF and also Mass Downloader, and I still getting 8kb files :(
TGB 10/13/2008 10:58 pm
If I queue 10 files just the 1st and 2nd file are downloaded fine the remaining 8 links just retrieves 17KB files. Looks like if the links expire after a couple of minutes or something like that and instead get the correct files it downloads a 17KB file.
Alexander 10/14/2008 03:20 am
Could you please send these links to us? We need them for a test.
You can publish them here or send to support@metaproducts.com with the "Mass Downloader" subject line.

If you paste and copy in the rapidshare checker, mus remove the space after each link, after this the links are working
AlexanderBa 10/15/2008 09:27 am
What way do you use to add the list of links to the Projects list?

Could you please convert these links to the following form:
http://USERNAME:PASSWORD@rapidshare.com/files/ ...
Where USERNAME and PASSWORD are your Rapidshare Premium login information. Then please repeat your download. Please write me about the result.
Thank you.

I though that you ask for the links cos you had a premiun account to test them. Sorry but if I need to add my login data in each link I want to download (what is pretty weird) I prefer don''t use DE with RS. Thanks anyway.
Alexander 10/17/2008 03:42 am
TGB,

We ask you to make one single test only.
It works well in our Rapidshare tests, we need to find the difference.

Thanks,
Alexander

People its working fine , but not with the intergrated addon.

You actually need to load the Download Express Project List , add the links manually , press play and presto!

It worked for me on Rapidshare Premium
