Cannot download music from a blog

February 16, 2009 at 18:11:18
Specs: Windows XP
I used to be able to download music from a music blog, rollogrady.com. The music is stored at rollogrady.org. Something on my computer is blocking that site, as I cannot view photos stored there either. I cannot access it either on Internet Explorer or Safari. I can access the content using a proxy server. I've tried everything and cannot get to it anymore. Suggestions?

Fred Red, sounds to me like 'firewall blocking'. Look at your 'security settings' in IE. Anything higher than 'medium' will block downloads.

Fred Red, I just tried a download (right click and save as). No problem, with security at high medium, firewall on and cookies enabled. You might try going in the back door by typing the site in google and selecting from there. That's how I did it. Wouldn't work by pasting url in address bar.

Check your hosts file for an entry that looks like this

127.0.0.1 url you want

and delete the entry.

hosts is in your etc folder.

Thanks for the suggestion to go in through the "back door" of Google, but that did not work. Also, thanks for the suggestion of deleting the entry in the hosts file, but unfortunately that did not work either. Any other suggestions?? Thanks. Rob
