    I am on windows xp. I have downloaded several files for the 3.0 software and cant seem to locate any ispw files within them. Any idea why.

    Make sure you are using FireFox. If you download with IE, it will show up as a .zip file and you will not be able to use it.

    You can change the extension from zip to ispw and you'll be all set. :)

    Yes, that is true, but you have to make sure you have the annoying default "Hide extensions for known file types" setting unchecked in the Folder Options. I couldn't find it initially on Vista so isntead I just opened up the site in FireFox and it solved the problem.

    when you download it change it to ipsw from zip.
    Its not ispw, its the wrong extension so it wont work.

    Well you should avoid IE and not just for that reason.

    I don't have any issues with IE. I'm not going to lie, I'm a Microsoft guy because I'm a developer using Microsoft technologies and I have to make sure our software is compatible with IE because that is what all of our clients use. The majority of the world uses Microsoft because that is what our businesses and governments use. I don't like getting into this topic because it always turns into a flame war, but don't hate on Microsoft because it's the "hip" things to do.
