    Hi, i'm experiencing some difficulties with my safari download manager. I got my ipad a few days ago and first thing i did was installing that torrent plugin for safari which was very slow and lurking via 'save to' tab i accidentally deleted one or two files/folders.then i installed the download manager for safari which automatically disabled the previously installed torrent plugin. The thing is - download manager acts really strange. When i choose the file iwant to download and tap'download to' there are no folders listed though it says im looking at the var/mobile folder. Furthermore, after the download is done (its done really fast and it says that downloading of my avi file is finished)i cant open it via ifile nor oplayer or buzzplayer, nothing happens when i click them as an option. So my question is - what's the cause for this malfunction? Could it be due those files/folders i deleted? And how can u reinstall download manager? And finally, if nothing helps -should i reset my ipad completely?

    Thank u all for ur answers

    Do you have write permissions into the folder you're saving to? Likely, the folders you deleted had the permissions needed for downloading and now you're saving to folder without same/similar permissions. What happens when you uninstall and then reinstall download manager?
