I’ve been trying to resolve the downloading problem for files that have a large size, ie. Podcasts and Webzines.

Please leave a reply stating the following:

1) Have you ever had a download from CDO not finish? If yes, does this happen on other websites?
2) What City and Country are you connecting from?
2) What Internet Service Provider are you using?

My own answers would be:
1) Yes sometimes, exclusively at CDO.
2) Sudbury, Canada
3) Personna Internet

My host is suggesting that ISPs are the issue, but I find this extremely hard to believe based on the diversity of people connecting from all over the world.  So I am trying to gather more data on this.



Pyro Stick:

The only thing ive been able to download is WoH 1. All other files stop half way through.

It doesnt happen on other websites
Connecting from the Highlands on Scotland
Bt Broadband

Ghrask Dragh:

Yes the WoH3 was particulary hard to download on itunes, kept getting an error (900 something I think)

Edit: WTF am I on about WoH! podcast I mean, on itunes, who’d have thought


I answered, “No, never”, but I’ve only DLed WoH. So:

1) No

2) St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada

I’ve only downloaded WoH, and only from CDO directly, and I haven’t had any problems as far as I can recall. I’m in Calgary, if that helps at all.

    2) Breda, The Netherlands.

    3) Ziggo.

Only when using a BT connection. The other three I make use of work fine.


  1. Yes with WoH 2+3

    2. Essen, Germany

    3. T-Online



  1. Have you ever had a download from CDO not finish? If yes, does this happen on other websites?

    2) What City and Country are you connecting from?

    2) What Internet Service Provider are you using?

    yes at CDO when using my work pc, which is UK - Newcastle (or close enough). I dont know what ISP we use though.

    Dont know if this is relevent, but if I accidently try and upload an attachment that is larger than the 300kb limit (i think thats right), then the site will no longer let me upload any attachments at all from that pc. so far i can no longer use my work pc, my desktop at home, or my ex’s laptop to upload attachments at all, so I have to use photobucket / get Starscream to post them for me.

    hope thats also useful!
