Yeah you will need to add the server address and login name/password if you select the secure server address and click secure box it will automatically use the correct ports.

are you using a paid service, if so the provider will have provided you with the necessary information

if you are using Virgin Media news server, then VM website will have the configuration information.

maybe they havent extracted.

grabbit downloads to one folder as RARs and then extracts to another folder (so check settings for folder destinations).

I take it you have quickpar installed too ( to auto repair any damaged downloads).

to be honest no idea, when i was using newzbin's downloader it just went straight to a download folder.
Now using alt.binz and a bit confused to be honest.

I mean i cant even see the file when i search for it and it defo downloaded.

the windows file i downloaded is there and ive just extracted it and the image file is there ready for burning.

should be in C: drive> program files> AltBinz>downloads.
in settings for Altbinz set up auto extract the files.
