    Is anyone else having trouble downloading Tracks 4 Australia? I have had four goes now and each time it downloads 20.1mb out of the total 38.0mb and then finishes. The .exe file is still created but when I try to run it to install it says files are corrupted.

    Is there any other source for this data? :ear

    Cheers

    It took me many tries over several days to get it to download, and I can't recall if I ended up using an alternative site. It's a pain in the bum, but the software has its uses.:evil
    It will eventually download. Actually, I think I started it in the morning 3 days in a row, and on the 3rd day it completed successfully. Wierd.

    An other thing to try is using something like Wget (available on Windows, Mac & Linux - free) to do the download for you. It has a continue function that if your download stops, it can be restarted from that point onwards.

    Wget -c http://blah.blah.blah

    Most ISP use FTP caches. If somebody downloads it and then terminates the download part way thru the FTP server will often deliver a partial file.

    Generally, wait 24 hours and try again
