Thread: All I get is a text file :(

  1. #1
    I've just downloaded the .nbz for Lost S03E14 from this forum...
    https://filesharingtalk.com/vb3/tv-nz...vid-fqm-170783

    When I load it up all the files download more or lest instantly and all I've got in my downloads folder are text files of zeroKB where the title is the title of each .rar file

    Same thing with the latest epsiode of Bones.

    anyone any ideas that is going on?? could it be me?

    UPDATE: just tried it with Prison Break... https://filesharingtalk.com/vb3/tv-nz...vid-xor-169953
    and that seams to be working fine.
    odd

    what server you using?

    generally if it just downloads a text file it means the server your downloading it off does not have the file meaning crap retention.

    Which client are you using?

    Generally, if you're using something like Outlook and try to download a binary, it will display it as a text file.

    I'm using the latest version of GrabIt on the PC.

    Was a very strange problem but it has resolved now, just downloaded it fine.
    Thanks for the help

    It takes time before the articles are spread to all the different usenet providers, usually it is just a matter of an hour or two.
