Problems downloading lesson files with WLCP

Posted by carolq August 24, 2009 in the Group General Discussion.

Dear WLCP,

I subscribe to (i.e. pay for) the ChinesePod online courses and am very grateful for your sw WLCP, as it has allowed me to continue to use my lessons when I don't have web access (which is often, as our internet connection is very slow and unstable).

I am having trouble downloading some files, when the name of the lesson has an unusual punctuation mark or Chinese character in it. E.g. the Intermediate lesson 'China's Supergirl' shows the following text string in the URL: china%E2%80%99s-supergirl. It seems as if the apostrophe in the name has been replaced by some weird letter and symbol combinations.

When I copy this text string exactly, with all the weird letter and symbol combinations, the file won't download.

Other lessons, such as Newbie 'Guess what I'm learning' also can't be downloaded, even though the text string in the URL here is very straightforward (guess-what-im-learning) with no weird symbols to replace the apostrope in the name.

I hope someone can shed some light on these problems.
