    Anyone else having downloading issues from Rapidshare lately? I used to be able to pull down zips and rars with my Droid with no problems (3G and WiFi), but for the past week or so, all files come though as empty and 47k in size. I've tried this on multiple browsers (stock, Opera, Skyfore, Dolphin), all with the same result. Furthermore, Megaupload seems to work fine.

    I do not use Rapidshare nor have I seen this issue in other threads.

    Have you tried installing and reinstalling to see if that resolves the issue?

    Rapidshare (rapidshare.com) is an online storage site, not an app. Same with Megaupload. I did a search of the forums before posting this, to see if anyone else had had issues, but the only rapidshare mentions were incidental.

    hmm thats strange as I just downloaded the N1 flash apk from rapidshare and it worked flawlessly (albeit it crawled on my work computers horrible T1)

    maybe its a corrupted file? Or possibly a timed out connection?

    Thanks for the clarification re being an online service. It appears that the issue is at their end. Do they provide a feedback or contact service?

    I've tried it with a number of different files, so it's not a corruption issue. Also tried over both 3G and my home (DSL-connected) WiFi; the download speed seems fast enough and doesn't time out, the only problem is that no matter what the actual size of the file is, it downloads as an empty 47k "shell."

    I'd switch to only using Megaupload, except that I find their web interface much clunkier than Rapidshare's.

    I dunno, from what ibebyi said above, I get the distinct feeling the problem might be at my end. I'm running stock and haven't received the 2.2 OTA yet, so there's always the chance that might fix whatever's causing my issue...

    Sounds like it's downloading the link to the download rather than the actual file, and saving the link as the file name. Some sort of file association screwup on the phone. Can't think of any fix at the moment, but this has happened to me now and then. I'm currently using Xscope for my browser and I think it handles downloads better, but maybe research ways to fix file associations...

    Sounds very familiar. And I can't find a "view full site" link at the bottom, as someone described above.

    I don't have a RS link open in front of me but I'm pretty sure there is no mobile version of that site, which is the only reason they'd have a "open full site" or w.e

    Idk are you using stock browser?
