    Question [SOLVED] Can't download files from Blackboard

    I've tried searching the forums and the internet in general and have still not found an answer that solves my problem.
    I am a graduate student and use my transformer + dock for school related tasks but I can't download and open any files from the blackboard site teachers use. I've tried different browsers (dolphin and opera) and opening in a new tab but the files never download. In the download screen it usually shows up as "untitlted" or "unknown" and never actually downloads or has a problem and won't download. This is true for pdf, doc, and ppt files.

    Are you on 4.0.3?

    Yes I am updated to 4.0.3 but these problems existed even before updates (the more recent firmware or ICS).

    Thank you for the greeting!

    I have downloaded many files using the stock browser in ICS but couldn't in honeycomb. Have you gone into your downloads folder to check if there is anything in there?

    One thing to try is to force stop the browser, wipe cache and try again. This seems to work for some people.

    I will try that when I have an internet connection again (currently at work with no wifi). I'll keep this thread updated on progress with the problem.

    followed the advice and still doesn't work. To clarify, in the status bar it shows <untitled> then the blackboard web address and the blue bar continues to move but I can't actually open the item and it is not downloading.

    I also just realized that in the download folder it says the download is paused but after about 5 min says failed. Don't know if that helps any.
