Default Download link broken

Not that it's the end of the world, but the

Big Fish R&B Funk Loops link on the download page of my Avid account is broken. Once I press either the Downlaod Manager option OR the direct link is states:

File not found."

Avid, could you fix this when get to it. Should be an easy fix, yes?

This should be fixed now.

If you are still having trouble, please reply with the complete file name (right click on "click here" to copy it).

Hey Jeffro,
Hi, I'm just downloading my upgrade to PT10, and the Big Fish loops seem to be broken for me, too. Here are the links that aren't working. Is it because they have "digidesign" in the name? I tried substituting "avid", but no dice.

Here are the broken links:
Big Fish Dance DJ Loops

Big Fish Hip Hop Loops

Big Fish Jazz Loops

Big Fish Pop Rock Loops

Big Fish R&B Funk Loops

Big Fish Rock Hard Loops

Big Fish World Loops

Thanks for your help!

Default Re: Download link broken

I tested your Avid account, and all of the Big Fish loops downloaded, using both the Download Manager and the alternate download link, where it says:
Should the Download Manager fail to start, or if you do not accept the security certificate, you can click here to download the file without using the download manager.
If you want to use the Download Manager (the larger "Download" link in that separate window with newer versions of Mac OS X, you would need to install Java from www.java.com since Mac OS X automatically removes/disables Oracle Java for the last few years.

If you could give more details about what you are seeing when you click on the downloads in your account, that would help figure out the problem.

Does the smaller download window open?
If not, then we need to figure out why. It's like a popup window, but really it is just opening a new smaller window. It doesn't make a difference whether popups are blocked or not when I try it on Firefox on Mac OS, but maybe try different settings or a different web browser.

Are you trying to download by right-clicking on the download links in your account and doing "Save As..."? That won't work. These are secure downloads that need to open that separate download window.

If you are on Mac OS X, and you had no problem downloading the disk image (.dmg) installers, then maybe it is only the .zip files for the loops that are a problem on your system. Maybe your web browser settings for zip files are causing an issue. Again, best way to tell is to try on a different web browser, or even a different computer as a last resort.
