    I'm guessing its because its hosted on file server hosts, such as rapidshare, megaupload, etc. And every download slot is different, and most of the time they don't work on mobile browsers.

    Maybe try changing you're browser settings to desktop, or try another browser like skyfire, or maybe Opera. I remember trying to download rapidshare files on windows mobile, I always had to use the crappy IE to download vs my usual browser Opera Mobile.

    That means it's in a compressed archived format, meaning you have to UNzip it. Download the app called "ASTRO file manager," and locate the file, then tap and hold the zip file, and click extract.

    Here's the QR code, scan it with google goggles and click "view in android market"
