    Default Downloads only a few hundred bytes....

    This isn't a very serious problem, but I've found that when I download with either IE or Firefox, the download tends to 'finish' in a matter of seconds but has really only downloaded a few hundred KB's. After redownloading the chapter a few times, it works.
    Was this what the "corrupt file" thread was about? I'm not sure if that was what you meant or not...

    No download manager, unless the Firefox download popup window thing counts. But then, I tried on IE just in case it was a Firefox problem and the problem persists.
    I've also tried "save target as" on IE, but it seems to not make it any more likely to download fully.

    This happens with mirror 1 and 2, I think. Since it's happened across many series/chapters. Do you really need my OS..?

    I must be stupid or something because I can't figure out how I edited that first post...D:
    So I have to post again, sorry.

    Here's the stuff from the first post put into the format. Just in case that helps people to help me...^^;

    1. One.
    2. Windows XP.
    3. Firefox
    4. Yes, on IE.
    5. Yes.
    6. Does the box window thing that pops up when you download on Firefox count? If not, then no.
    7. Hunter x Hunter and GTO.
    8. I'll go to download the file, it will download as normal, but only a few hundred bytes will download and then the download goes to 'completion'. It will download the file fully when I try a few times.
    9. On IE, yes. Is it "save link as" for Firefox? Hm...I ought to try that, then....

    There are no server related issues. The problem is your connection is timing out for some reason and it is nothing we control.

    Ah. I see, I did think it was likely something wrong on my side but it was just that this happens only with this site. T__T; And, this is probably where I download the most. Bad luck, I guess.
    Thanks for telling me the reason why it's happening, though. ^^;

    If this was happening we would have a lot more complaints. Are you still having problems even at this very moment?

    It happened once last night again when I was downloading a few chapters of GTO. Hm. I guess there's nothing to do about it, though.
