Problem downloading zip file

Download Accelerators Users cant

I have a link to a zip file. When you click the file starts download.

However "Download Accelerator" users can't if they are using the accelerated mode.

The file is only 60kb. I use Download accelerator myself and can download zip files in other sites...

So I guess the difference is in my own server permisions or something...

If you set regular mode is ok, but accelerated option cant (marks "unknown" in the list).

Any help please? Is there something I can do?

From the looks of it the web server isn't returning the correct MIME code for the file. Use a tool that can check the headers returned by the webserver. It should be returning a MIME type of "application/zip" for that file.
