Check your disk space.

When you download anything it creates at temp file with a random name on the disk with the most available space. When the download is complete the file is renamed and transferred to wherever you told the downloaded to put it.

If there is not enough available space then the temp file stays where it is with the same random name created by the downloader.

Windows 7 by default saves to:

C:\users\username\download

Where "username" is the name you're logging on with.

There's a world of difference between downloading "anything" and specifically downloading for itunes.

Our generic responses were geared towards your generic question. Had you posted that eensy little important bit of info at the outset, it would have saved a bit of time and effort.

While I do own an iPod and have iTunes installed on one of my computers, I don't use it all that often. I copied all my mp3's (I burned all my CD's to mp3 format years ago) into iTunes when I initially got the ipod and ran it and basically haven't looked at it since.

However..........if memory serves me, when downloading for iTunes, the downloads will go into a folder within iTunes itself. Not to the download folder where "anything" else goes.

So to sum up. This isn't a network issue. It's not an operating system issue. It is in fact, an iTunes issue. You need to figure out where your iTunes downloads go and then go find them and sadly I can't help you withat. But I can point you in the right direction if you can't figure it out for yourself. iTunes itself will have support people you can contact who's job it is is to give you support and help.

It matters not how straight the gate,

I am the captain of my soul.
