Download Error

Post by BOOBALAN.V »

Dear Community,

I am trying to download the PDF file from Scribd website. I have downloaded more than 10 files from this website. Suddenly it shows the following error.
"We're sorry, but your computer or network may be sending automated download queries. To protect our users, we can't process your request right now" I couldn't download from any system and different account too. What cause the problem? Is this network error or what? I am using chrome and i tried with firefox.

Did you trying searching with (e.g.) Google for that error? There are plenty of similar reports.

It looks like Scribd has either detected too many download requests from your IP address, or you have reached some other limit.

In the future, try waiting a few minutes between downloads.
Best wishes,

Thank you so much sir. Same reason what i thought whether i crossed the download limit or not. Because i am using 30 days free trial. But the problem is i tried with different computer and different account too sir. That's why i asked this doubt. Because this error is not from google. It shows from website side. Ok sir i will try tomorrow. Let we see what happen :smile:

I appreciate that, but searching with Google for similar 'errors' shows that plenty of others have reported a similar issue.

(For example, this search brings up about 5,970,000 results.)

This website allows only 3 downloads per day. Then it shows again the same errors :laugh: There are restrictions for free users :sad:
