Has anyone tried downloading from rapidshare as a free user recently.
There are no free slots whatsoever, (for me anyway) is anyone else able to get any download slots? ive got jdownloader reetying every 2 mins but there havent been any slots all day! just wondering if anyone knows whats happening or why.
I dont use it very often so thats why i dont have a premium account.

i might have a spare premium lying around...


free is workin for me as is prem

Been like that the last few days for me, only been able to download 1 thing in like 3 days


yeah its ***** now

Free download works very rarely for me nowadys for some reason, never used to have a problem with it?

Been like this for several months now. Free slots in the evenings and weekends are very dificult to get hold of.

I dislike download managers but since Christmas I've been forced to use one to do my radpidshare downloads overnight.


if youre only downloading one or two things a day, and theyre below hmmmmmm 200mb then find a site which will allow you to use their premium service. quite a few of these around. dont think you need to sign up or anything major at all


i did say i have a spare prem but its actually a megaupload prem - in any case id share my rapidshare prem thanks to the seculock

whats seculock does it mean you cant change the password?

Yeah have been having problems here for about 8 months but maybe thats an O2 issue as had O2 for all that period.

If I can get a slot the download keeps pausing and restarting so even if it says say 2 minutes to download a file it ends up being like 20-30 minutes.

Rapidshare is awful. I had a premium account for the best part of last year and it was never up to scratch with regards to speed. Very very rarely made the most of my connection - usually got stuck with 400MB/s most of the time.

After cancelling and using it as a free user, I found it even worse with the whole slot system however i usually get a slot after 1 or 2 retries.

RS has had server issues.recently, but should be resolved soon

Fancy passing it this way?


400kb/s you mean, me and my dad have had premiums each for over a year … 400kb/s you mean, me and my dad have had premiums each for over a year always max out our connects I get 2600kb/s. He gets 1500kb/s.

Ah my bad, kb/s is what I meant! Wish I got those kinda speeds.. would be expecting 1100kb/s or a bit more on my line but never got that..

Still resent RS for having such a bad free service though.. Megaupload provide a totally awesome free service. I'd buy an account if i needed to!
