Is it just me? When I try to use the download function on any of the podcasts now, a 0 kB file with the correct name is instantly created on my computer, but the file doesn’t download. Running Windows 7 with Internet Explorer 11. This didn’t used to be a problem on the old website.

I cannot duplicate what you describe. I see a change of page to one with darker text (but otherwise the same) that opens a window that shows the byte count. I just downloaded two more.

Is anyone else experiencing trouble with downloads?

What browser are you using?

I see another window open, but just for a split second. Then it disappears and the usual IE download dialog box opens at the bottom of the original window.

Windows 10 and IE 11. No giggles.

I’ve seen the flash of a page you mentioned. Nothing happens and I have to do the link again.

I am also experiencing exactly the same problem. Also running Windows 7 & Internet Explorer 11 but same issue with Firefox 57.

I see it eventually worked for you so I guess I need to keep trying.

I wish I could tell you that I changed some specific setting, but all I did was try again after a few days. Maybe try rebooting your computer?

Good suggestion but didn’t work. I will try coming back again another day and hope for better luck. Thanks.

Interesting. I tried again the day after my first attempt and it still did not work but now it is working fine. So my experience very closely mirrors yours. Perhaps some of the site’s functions only become available a few days after registering?
