    I've recently discovered www.allofmp3.com and it's really very good. However I'm getting a bit of flakyness and I was wondering if a separate download client that can resume a cut off download will help or would it be a site related problem. Also can anyone recommend a good client in this situation.

    At the moment I'm using firefox to download the files. What happens is that some files come down at a decent speed but some come in real slow. The slow ones often crap out on me. Sometimes I'm nearly at the end of a download and it ends. Firefox won't pick up where it left off and I have to begin again.

    Thanks

    You could try Speed Download 4 http://www.yazsoft.com/ or try downloading the file in Safari. Though i find that if one file has a problem downloading in Firefox, it will have problems in other download clients too.... :(

    Speed Download works really well. I was able to get a whole bunch of files downloaded at top speed, plus it put them into a special playlist for easy sorting. I might have to actually buy this. (unless I can get all the stuff I need in the next 20 days)
