I have used I getter for a few years and have only ever had the odd problem. Now though, it has ceased working as my download client. Whenever I click on a rapidshare file to download, it automatically puts it into I getter. (which I set up)
and then downloads it in a split second and ends up as 0kb in size.
This has been happening for the last three months. I have the free version admittedly but why would I ever want to buy it if this is what I am going to get. It has been completely useless as far as I am concerned.
I have also followed all the advice given to people with the same problems, all to no avail.
I use Safari and my main browser. As I said, I never had a problem before.

First, in iGetter v2.8.7 you should turn on "Save redirected URLs" option at iGetter preferences, Advanced panel. The last user that reported similar problem found that he has turned off "Send cookies from browser" option at iGetter preferences, Integration panel.

Here is a summary of all users suggestions:

1. Turn on "Save redirected URLs" option at iGetter preferences, Advanced panel.
2. Change "HTTP user agent" at iGetter preferences, Advanced panel.
3. Turn on "Send cookies from browser" option at iGetter preferences, Integration panel.
4. Use only your default browser when you download from rapidshare. You can set it at Safari preferences, General Panel -> "Default Web browser". Here you can choose Firefox for example if you use it instead of Safari.
5. In your rapidshare premium area, turn on direct downloads option and turn off SSL option (My RapidShare->File Manager->Download Settings:
Direct Downloads->ON
Secure Downloads (SSL)->OFF

6. If RS downloads start with https, try to remove the "s" from "https://" part of the URL. To do so, turn on "Open save dialog on new download" option at iGetter preferences, General panel. Or if the download is not started, use "Item Settings" command (or double click on the download).
7. Enter the following sites with your user info at iGetter preferences, Site Manager panel (notice the point before rapidshare):

8. When you add a rapidshare link use the "Download with iGetter" contextual menu command or click on the link and wait for iGetter to intercept the download. These two functions support session cookies.
9. Use Firefox as default browser and install the FlashGot add-on ( in Firefox and then just click on a rapidshare link. When the Firefox save dialog appears choose iGetter to download the file with iGetter. You may try also some of the FlashGot contextual menu commands: "FlashGot Link", etc.
