    Everytime I try to download something in the browser, it comes up saying that the download is unsucessful. Ive been trying .apk, .zip, and .rar files but none of them work even on different websites.

    My X is NON rooted, ota 2.2.1

    Any ideas? This is really frustrating...

    In your settings do you have your applications set to allow other programs to be downloaded?

    Sometimes some files won't download. If that happens use a computer, download the file and just put it on your SD card. Use the Files program to complete the install or download.

    Download using a different browser like dolphin or skyfire. Or you can do the toggle trick and turn airplane mode on then off. You don't need to check download from unknown sources, this only matters when actually installing an app. But its in settings/applications

    sometimes the download gets interrupted when you receive a text, email or phone call. i've seen it happen, but i've also been able to download a 350mb movie in its entirety

    I have the same issue often. I can retry it and it works fine. But sometimes it stops.

    +1 for Astro, read the other day it will allow you to download any file type from your browser, whether Droid knows what it is or not.
