    check where you have asked it to download to....I'm only taking a stab in the dark at this stage but if you have done eveything corectly it may have downloaded but you didn't see where to? I will be watching with interest to see wht the answer is .....

    I am assuming from this that you have sucessfully downloaded software before?
    If so what was the last thing you did before these problems began?

    Welcome to Mac-Forums, percyjimbob64.

    And on top of answering MDDG's questions, could you tell us a bit about your OS version (for example, 10.4.6, not Mac OS X Tiger as there are many versions in Tiger) and about your Mac, i.e. which Mac model is it, how much RAM, etc?

    Which software downloads are giving you trouble? OS updates? Any download at all?
