View Full Version : Download manager - need to be able to add hyperlinks?

Hi Guys,

Just bought a Mac book aluminum 2.4GHz.

Lets just say its frickin awesome!

This is my first Mac so there are still a few things to get used to.

One of the major issues I'm having is downloading hyperlinks through either Speed Downloader 5 or Jdownloader.

The program will allow me to add files as long as the entire link is displayed.

for example if i try to drag and drop a hyper link that says click here (http://www.mactalk.com.au) it wont accept it however if the link is www.mactalk.com.au (http://forums.mactalk.com.au/www.mactalk.com.au) It will start downloading the link

I download alot of stuff using rapidshare and alot of the files have many parts and i need to login so i think speed downloader is going to be the way to go

but i cant stand having to add links individually!

Does anyone know a way around this or can you suggest a better download manager?

Thanks alot for any help guys. :rolleyes:
