    Your disk is full? Your connection is unreliable and times out?

    What happens when you can't download? Any error messages?

    my disc isnt full, my connection is relaible, i tried with my other imac, running os 9 and i could download. i also tried with my ibook and i could download(running os x)
    for some reason i cant with this computer.

    i also tried reseting safari, and erasing the cache still doesnt work.

    when i try to download it will either just not do anything, or go as if its about to start downloading then just stop

    I talked to the Apple people and they said that my account had probably become damaged. They said i should create a new user id and transfer all of my data to it. I really dont know how anything could have happened but I tried what they said and it worked. It was just a real pain to have to transfer all of my files, but thats life. Good luck aethier.
