    i have cable and i have tried like 2 times to download a 600 meg file running at reasonable speed
    but everytime it says it completed the file and i check how big it is, and it only says like 158meg

    how can i get it to finish the WHOLE file instead of just some of it?

    (i can't use download accelerator because it doesn't work with it)

    Hey Pod. I have cable as well and I have downloaded files that are 750megs and have not trouble what so ever. I would speculate that the problem is on the other end of your download, not on your side. See if you can find another source to download from. I do not believe that there is a limit to the size of file that you can download. Let me warn you of something though, dealing with files that large you will find that unless you have a fairly powerful machine with alot of RAM the machine may act like it is locked up or isn't doing anything when you try to open the file. Have patience. It will eventually.
    Hope this helps.
