Dear Expert Exchange

I'm probably going mad but i cannot seem to figure out why "downthemall" is not
working when i select .rar files. It's always giving the error "no pictures or links found". Now believe me, i searched and found info, but it's still not clear why it's
doing this. Searched and searched. I think (from what i've read) it has something to do with the filters, but i can see the filter has "archives" mentioned.

So i'm guessing thats ok. Could anyone help with the please?

Many thanks in advance.

well, i saw the filters, and archives are mentioned in there, i thought that was ok or should have been enough but it seems not. I was actually looking for something simular like rapidshere manager but for hotfile files. Unf, did not exsist. So thats why i started to use downthemall.

the urls im trying are scene posts

right, I understand that. That is the DownThemAll Options page.  Mine was from the webpage, when I right click and select DownThemAll, it gives me the Filters that I was displaying.
