function FileDownload(AConnection: TConnectionInfo;
    ASourceFile: String; var AMemoryStream: TMemoryStream): Integer; overload;
begin
  Result := 0;
  with TidFTP.Create(nil) do
    try
      Host := AConnection.Host;
      Username := AConnection.Username;
      Password := AConnection.Password;
      //Added By Donskie
      TransferType := ftBinary;
      AsciiFilter := False;
      try
        Connect(False);
        Login;
        Get(ASourceFile, AMemoryStream, False);
        AMemoryStream.Position := 0;
      except
        on E: Exception do Result := -1;
      end;
    finally
      Free;
    end;
end;

procedure TfDictation.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  ftpConnection : TConnectionInfo;
  sPath : String;
  memStream : TMemoryStream;
begin
  with ftpConnection do
  begin
    Host := '202.162.2.58';
    Username := 'user'
    Password := 'temp';
  end;

  memStream := TMemoryStream.Create;

    if FileDownload(ftpConnection, 'Temp/1.mp3' , MemStream) > -1 then
    ShowMessage('Successfull')
  else
    ShowMessage('Error');
   
    MemStream.SaveToFile('e:\temp.mp3');

end;

the 1.mp3 is 500KB file and i can hear anything in it when i tried to download it using anyFTP client. when i tried indy to get it from the server i can't anymore hear anything. the size is the same with the original but has no voice in it.

is there any problem with the indy included in Delphi 7?

The IndyFTP server uses TStream in the Store and Retrieve Events. Using TMemoryStream with files can have major problems
when sending data between client / server (or that's my experience at least). I recommend that you use TFileStream instead.
