    Anyone know of any rapidshare link grabbers? For some reason every I try to download rapidshare .rar files witha download manager they come up as not being compressed or encrypted and I just download empty 8kb .rar files. The files are there though because they can be dowloaded directly from the rapidshare website. Any help please?

    I personally use firefox, and use the "downloadthemall" extension. This works well for me.

    If nobody helps, it's because nobody knows. Sorry.

    I use SpeedDownload. Works perfectly. if it downloads an empty file, chances are that file has been reported and deleted off it's servers.

    This is my problem...the files download directly from the rapidshare site...as in no dead links/removed files. They simply download links however when done with a download manager. Am I putting my password in incorrectly in the preferences panel?

    i use speed download for downloading the files. i go to forumw.org to look for the movies and such and then i paste it into a new window. then i find a mirror and right click and copy link location and then i paste it into my speed download. this is when i'm using firefox. when you use safari, and when u right click, it should give u an option of downloading with speed download. i have a cracked version of speed download if you want... pm me.

    Paste the URLs directly into a txt file, import it, voila. Done.

    You should be sure that you have direct downloads enabled.

    iGetter and Speed Download are known to be rapidshare compatible. You have to set them up correctly, first.

    For iGetter enter http://.rapidshare and http://.rapidshare/files/ plus your login info in the site manager. Note, no 'www'.

    In site manager, of course along with the username and password for each.

    2. Use FlashGot firefox plugin, to pass the links to iGetter correctly

    3. Make sure you choose Direct Download in your RapidShare account settings

    And it will work with you as it just worked for right now.

    Don't know if it was around when this thread was started, but how about jDownloader? It's not the prettiest (or most bug-free) program in the world, nor the easiest to use, and it's Java-based, but it is tremendously powerful and there is even a Mac-specific version. (Though I note that I've actually had more luck running the generic build--the interface looks more like Windows, but it seems to behave better.)

    It supports link grabbing indirectly, via the clipboard (you can set it to just scan the clipboard constantly looking for links), or directly via plugins. Handles Rapidshare queuing and downloads, along with pretty much every other file host there is.

    Kinda reminds me of Azureus of old in style and mentality, and it works for me once I got it set up.

    I can second this. jDownloader is a great application for someone using sites like Rapidshare, Megaupload, Depositfiles, EasyShare, etc.
