View Full Version : USE RAPIDSHARE?

05-21-2007, 08:16 PM
Okay, I broke down and purchased a premium account with Rapidshare today, I bought a one month account to try it out.

Up to now, I have solely been a torrent user, so this Rapidshare has me a wee confused and I was hoping someone could give me some step by step instruction....? :smile:

Since I have a Premium Account (which I understand means no daily download limits) is there an easier way to download Rapidshare files than having to click on each of the individual file? For example, the first fan edit I want to download is DOC SALVAGED.... do I have to click each of the individual 40 some files seperately? or is there a SINGLE LINK I can access that will download the entire file like a torrent? I tried checking the Rapidshare faq but could not find an answer... could any you active Rapidshare users share some of your wisdom with me? :???:

you can use rapidget as a download manager. Once installed you can select multiple files, add you login data and they will all be downloaded. There is a limitation though. Currently Rapidshare lets you download 25GB in 5 days. You can either download 5GB per day or 25 on 1 day, but then you will have to wait 5 days until you can do it again.

There is a option in Rapidshare under options that has a little box to click and it will give you direct links. So, if you use a d/l manager (I use Flashget) and on a page like this (http://www.fanedit.org/rapidshare/rapidshare_adm_ap1.html) you can right click "Download All by Flashget" and it will d/l all links or you can select certain links. And of course you have to be logged in to RS.

If the file/link has .html extension like here (http://www.fanedit.org/rapidshare/adm/rapidshare_adm_et.html) then Flashget will d/l the file like this --> ADM_ET.part01.rar.html, but all you have to do is rename the without the .html.

Hopefully this is not too confusing..

things to remember with rapidshare.

1. if you use Rapget (which is what I use) you have to go into "servers" under the options in the Rapget program and enter in your username/password for Rapidshare.com

However you have to enter as the username your NUMERIC ID not your alias that you created instead of the numbers (if you created an alias).

2. make sure to go into your options on Rapidshare.com and click something to do with direct downloads.

It'll prevent it from taking you away from the page you're on and just give you a download box.

3. Go into your options on Rapidshare.com and click "monitor clipboard"

Then when you want, go to fanedit.org or wherever and if there's a huge list of rs.com links just highlight all of them and rightclick and select "copy"

It'll automatically add them to your window in Rapget.

Then go in and click the GREEN triangle thing at the top.

just giving you guys a heads up if you use flashget to downoad off rapidshare. Due to it's bit torrent suport, you will get a ton of crap addys trying to connect to your pc unless you have an app (like peerguardian) blocking them. Most of these are old torrent sites that were seized, fake p2p connections and other crap. I might switch to rapget and see if the same type of connections appear.

rapget works fine with no phony torrent bullshit connections trying to tap into your pc. If such a thing concerns you, use rapget and NOT flashget
