  • Hi Grant,

    I'm sorry to hear that you had trouble downloading those videos.   
    Were you using the Download All feature to download the videos?   Also, what type of connection to the internet do you have?
    Occasionally, I've heard of cases where they some of them don't download completely, and get cut off by the next download.
    If that could be the case, try downloading the ones that didn't work one at a time.

    Best regards,

  • I've tried one at a time, different downloaders etc etc
    I am still getting incomplete downloads, and wasting an incredible amount of expensive bandwidth. I pay about $300 - $400 for my monthly satellite ipstar based connection. I live in the country and it's the only broadband connection available.
    The last failed incomplete video was ,
    016_complete_your_commands.mp4?isbn13=9781491908327&external_id=0_szvzpfd0&productIsbn13=9781491908327&https=true

    It cut off at about 4 min to the end.
