    I am trying to download mp3 files from my file server onto my Droid. Everytime I try to download a song I get the error message Download Unsuccessful. I thought it was a problem with my server but all of my computers can download from it, and I just went and got my mom's Droid ERIS to test. It could successfully download mp3 files from the server. This is ridiculous, why wouldn't my Droid be able to download these files but the ERIS can? Is this a case of Droid DOESN'T?

    I actually already was reading threads and had downloaded this and tried it. Didn't fix the problem though :/ But I'm using the Lite version and no idea what version number it is. Perhaps you have a more updated version I can try?

    I know it's not exactly the same situation, but when my phone will not download a certain file type, I open up Dolphin Browser (I only use it for this purpose) and it downloads fine. Might be worth a shot...

    If you are trying to pull files from a file server, download E Strongs File Manager from the market. It will allow you to map the server like a drive and then you can just copy the files down.

    I'm giving this a try, I tried to get it to connect to my server but I must be doing something wrong. It doesn't seem to be working ):
