    Having trouble too.. I just uploaded 3 new sample packs and using the 'download this pack..' button doesn't seem to to work for me. My old sample pack on there 'Hi-Hats Closed' still works though, so makes me think it's a recent upload problem? As far as I can see all the samples will preview and download okay individually, just not as part of the automatic .zip pack.

    Can someone else quickly see if the links work for them?

    Thanks!

    Why do things download faster with flashget(download manager) as opposed to fire foxes regular downloading? So why? All ftp downloads download way faster with my download manager. For example if I download stuff with fire fox from some sites I get like 30-40 kbs... But when i start the same downloads with flash get I download things several times faster. Why the heck is that?

    Multiple thread downloading; accelerators can download multiple parts at once if servers allow to do so (I think it is the "resume" option support). If the download speed of a single thread is limited let say to 100kB, then if you have 4 threads within a file - you get a better speed (if server does not limit the overall speed per IP). There also can be something related to the way how downloader communicates with the server, requesting packages.

    Hmmm... I am 'glad' it is not just me...

    As to it affecting new packs only, maybe this helps:

    This pack works
    Last sample on it dated May 29th
    http://www.freesound.org/packsViewSingle.php?id=7612

    These don't work
    http://www.freesound.org/packsViewSingle.php?id=7590
    (last sample date also 29th May)
    http://www.freesound.org/packsViewSingle.php?id=7591
    (same date)

    All uploaded by the same user (assumed samples were uploaded at more or less the same time)

    Maybe this helps pinpoint when things went wrong.

    hmmmm..... erm..... I forgot...

    Seems to be with a lot of packs:

    You can play the samples but the download link is broken:

    Yeah, is there any chance something can be done about this? I mean, downloading individual files is okay, but I like the .zip files because the samples are pre-grouped together ... and there's documentation included so I don't have to remember where I got each sample.
