I guess you tried to update your Jdownloader?
A lot of times it can be the solution.

(and completely removing files and re import them after the update)

JDownloader won't load the DLC for Shadow of the Sith. I'm starting to think there's something wrong with the DLC, because JD seems to be working just fine.

Your comment wasn't clear. Did you

1) Click "File --> Restore JD"... or
2) Click "File --> Restart"... or
3) Right hand click on the files you're having trouble with and click "Reset".

Did you do those steps?

I had the same problem, the "plugin error (out of date)", with another file host. I updated jDownloader and now it works fine. As for the captcha thing, the only file host I've used that bypassed it was Megaupload. All other file hosts that I've downloaded from, that require you to enter the captcha when downloading manually, will still ask you to enter the captcha when downloading from jDownloader.

I just got this message on JDownloader when I tried to download Fifth Element: Prime Evil Edition.

I would think it has something to do with previous things I've downloaded. But that doesn't make sense because I already cleared out all the previous .rar files from JD before attempting this.

I did a search to see if anybody had asked about this before, but I came up with nothing.

Anyone know what's going on and what can be done about it?

Thanks in advance!

moved to appropriate forum (file conversion, really??)

This happens periodically with megashares and some other hosts. There is nothing wrong with the link. Proceed with the download, it will start when there is a slot open.

This problem only started happening once Megaupload was shut down. More people started using Megashares and it became bombarded with people downloading from it so that's why you're getting that message. It sucks, but at least you know the file is online. If it was dead you'd it would say that the file was offline. The "temp.uncheckable" message only applies to non-premium members though.

not true on 2 accounts. Though it is more common now, it happened before MU was shutdown. Also, I have a premium account at MS, and I still get that message when adding links to jdownloader. As soon as I start them though, they work.

I only started getting that message once Megaupload was shut down. If you try the link manually you get an "no free slots" message. As for still getting the message as a premium user I can't comment on that since I only have a free account, but at least the file will download right away. As a free user if you get the "temp.uncheckable" message you have to wait 10 minutes before it can check again. That is unless you stop jDownloader and hit the start button. I found that works sometimes.

I see. Thanks for all the explanations, folks.

And I was thinking of converting the .rar files into the VTS files via JDownloader, which is how I picked the "Converting" forum. But now I see what you all meant by converting. Man, I didn't get enough sleep last night. :eek:
