Site Download Request

I've tried downloading .gif files two different ways on http://digital.library.pitt.edu/cgi-bin/t/text/text-idx?;c=nietz;tpl=browse.tpl I only need the large images, so that I can print a book for home use. I have tried capturing the images only, getting the url by clicking view image, and also setting it to just download images ending in .gif with the original url. I can't get either to work, it says it is downloading and queues files but nothing downloads. Your help is appreciated!
Thanks

An easy way is to get the URL of the real page with the images. For example, I went to the first page of the book and right-clicked near the image. I chose Properties and copied the page address:

http://digital.library.pitt.edu/cache/5/8/2/582f0e3dd42aa126955a188a8ce39887/00z333974m.33.s.image.content.html

I created a Project using Wizard with this URL and unlimited level, load only from the starting URL, images - from any site.

Have you ever had your program blocked from operating on a site? I ask, because it is still is not working. I have used your program before, and previous downloads that originally worked are not downloading now. I actually created the exact url for each image file that I wanted to download, 174 urls in the Properties (urls) box. It queued them all - the correct number of pages. It acts like it's going to download, as in "connecting to host" and "delaying 1 second", but no file downloads. It finishes with no files downloaded.

Try to change the "Use alternative download method" box on the Internet tab of the Ribbon. Would this help?
