Trick Megaupload to Download Files

These Megaupload tricks are particularly useful for those who receive the message "All slots assigned to your country are in use", when you try to download a file.

I'm still not completely sure if this will work all the time, but its worth a try even if it works 60% of the time. Below are five different methods you can try.
If you would like to make any other suggestions, feel free to leave a comment..84

For RapidShare:
If you have a ADSL connection with dynamic IP address, just restart you ADSL router/modem and clean your browser cache, especially cookies. This should be enough.
Method 4 listed below may also work for Rapidshare.

Method 1:
Go to http://upandup.freehostia.com/accelerator.html85 to easily bypass Megaupload download slots. Just as a precaution, clean your browser cache before each attempt, even though I don't think this is necessary.


Method 2:
If you can't get those country slots, you can read the post about a new version of a Firefox extension called Megaupload S.X3.286 for megaupload.


Method 3:






1. Go to the Google Translate tool. Here you'll find two sections : Translate Text and Translate a Web Page.

2. In the Translate a Web Page text box, paste your megaupload download link. Select the translation of your choice and hit the Translate button to load the megaupload file download page.
If you have anything to say about this method or you have some other trick, please let me know.


Method 4:
This method involves browsers that use the anonymous TOR network. XeroBank (formerly know as Torpark) is one if the browsers and OperaTor (check the post on OperaTor) is the other. XeroBank is a modified version of Firefox with TOR and OperaTor is a combination of the Opera browser, TOR and Privoxy.

Setting these browsers can be quite a headache. So be prepared to do some extra reading to get them started. Also, my guess is since these browsers use the TOR network, breaking limits may be possible in almost any services like Megaupload, Rapidshare..etc


Method 5:
87For Firefox users:


1. Install the Firefox addon named User Agent Switcher88.

2. Once installed, go to Tools >> User Agent Switcher >> Options >> Options.
The User Agents Switcher Options window is displayed.

3. Select User Agents from the list in the leftmost part of your screen.

89
4. Click Add to add a new user agent and type these details in the resulting window:
a. In the Description box type : MEGAUPLOAD
b. In the User Agent box type : Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; Alexa Toolbar)

5. Click OK twice to close the two windows and finish adding the new user agent.

So how do you use it from here? Just before you download a file from Megaupload, go to
Tools >> User Agent Switcher >> MEGAUPLOAD.
You can always set the user agent back to default after your download is complete.

.................................................................
Update for Firefox 2
Someone has commented90 the same thing can be done without using the Firefox User Agent add-on :

Type in the address bar this: about:config
Then search for this key: general.useragent.extra.firefox
Double click on it and add this: MEGAUPLOAD 1.0
So at the end it will look like this: Firefox/2.0 MEGAUPLOAD 1.0
Restart Firefox and now you have infinite slots.
.................................................................


Method 6:
91For Internet Explorer users:

IE users will have to edit settings in the Windows Registry.
(Caution: Please ensure you backup your registry before proceeding. Read this post92 if you don't know how to backup the registry.)

1. Go to Start >> Run.
Type regedit and press Enter. This will open the Registry editor.

2. IE 7 (IE 6 users can also try this ) users must navigate to the following :
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet
Settings\User Agent\Post Platform.

3. Other IE users must go to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet
Settings\5.0\User Agent\Post Platform.

4. Now right-click the Post Platform folder and go to New >> String Value.
Type Alexa Toolbar as the name and click Ok.

Enjoy downloading...
If any of the above tricks aren't working, there is one more way. I couldn't classify it as a method for downloading from megaupload. In fact, megaupload is not even in the picture in this case. Well, it is a site named DivShare. For those who aren't aware, it is much BETTER THAN Megaupload. Unlimited downloads, unlimited uploads, files stay on DivShare forever..
Check out our review about DivShare..and you'll forget megaupload.

for ff:

Type in the address bar this:
about:config
Then search for this:
general.useragent.extra.firefox
Double click on it and add this:
MEGAUPLOAD 1.0
so at the end it will look like this:
Firefox/2.0 MEGAUPLOAD 1.0
Restart firefox and now you have infinite slots
Comment by Anonymous Anonymous on February 4, 2007 at 1:23 AM  
none of this is working for me. i downloaded firefox and the add on for it, didn't work. tried editing the registry settings on IE, didn't work. Tried the method of about:config for firefox, didn't work. It keeps saying download limit exceeded and it keeps giving me my ip address and telling me to try again in 353 minutes. any suggestions? I'm using the newest versions of everything. even tried a program called hide IP and it keeps giving me IPs in countries that block megaupload.com any suggestions?

Solution for those who get "ERROR OCCURED " and prompting to wait until the download finish.

1>PASTE THE "RAPIDSHARE "LINK IN YOUR BROWSER .
2>CLICK ON FREE BUTTON
3>IF U GET THE ERROR ON TOP SIDE OF WEBPAGE..THEN REFRESH THE PAGE UNTIL COUNTDOWN COMES AGAIN BY PRESSING "F5 OR REFRESH BUTON IN UR BROWSER"
4>I HOPE U GET YOUR COUNTDOWN AGAIN.

hey i used user agent switch and some of the features above for a very long time already... just today suddenly i received "download limit exceeded" on megaupload..

can anyone tell me why?

also i used the www.upandup.info
but when i was at the download page, where i should put in the code to confirm my download, the DOWNLOAD tab was gone... can anyone please help or give some advice
Comment by Anonymous Anonymous on December 13, 2008 at 2:53 PM  
I have found that if you use 'WGET' (a GNU CLI-based downloader) to download from megaupload, then it doesn't notice that you are even downloading anything.

this means you can download many files at the same time and you are not subject to download limits by megaupload.
Comment by Anonymous Anonymous on December 13, 2008 at 3:31 PM  
heres another tip to add:
if you dont want to wait 45 secs for the free link to appear, just type javascript:countdown() in to the address bar and press enter a few times. it will count-down quicker.
Nice Tricks!

I was not aware of these....Thanks again for sharing.

i've tried almost all of those for megaupload. i'm tying to download a specific file and it tells me that i'm currently downloading a file when i know i am not. I've tried Methods: 1, 2, 3, 5 and even 6 even though i don't usually use IE

what should i do??

i've tried the agent thing as well but after my computer crashed it stopped working. any other suggestions?

Thank you so much .. the IE thing worked with me..
NOTHING WORKS TO THIS TIPS... ALWAYS DOWNLOAD EXCEEDED TO LIMIT.. BUT I DON'T DOWNLOAD ANYTHING.. WHAT'S THIS PROBLEM AND HOW TO SOLVE THIS?
I'M USING FIREFOX 3.0.8
Comment by Anonymous Anonymous on May 24, 2009 at 12:28 AM  
Update for ANY browser or service.

step1) Load your megaupload page and input keycode but dont download

step2) open as many of the above as you want/as possible in tabs or other pages

step3) place your cursor over the downlaod button and notice the www(3 numbers here).megaupload/com/blahblahblah
in front of the link for your download. make sure each one is different, and you can get all of them.

Personally what I do is click the link button ( different servers of course), then make em all pop up then click save on all of em.

It works wonderfully, thank you! :)
Comment by Anonymous Crucio on June 13, 2009 at 9:59 AM  
There's a much simpler way actually o.o, discovered it by accident.

1. Go to the link where the file is.
2. Click Regular Download
3. When it displays a Blank page with "Download Limit Exceeded", simply hold Control and press F5.

After step 3, my download manager began to download the file. If it doesn't work, it means you'll need a help of a download manager.

The about:config and User Agent Switch method no longer work as Megaupload updated their servers as of 9/26/09
THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
IT WORKED(FIREFOX)!
Better option would be to use the megaupload download tool available at megaupoad.com in tools section.
It lets you download 3 files per IP Address .

Comment by Anonymous The Bitch on January 8, 2010 at 1:58 AM  
Yup, method 5 worked for me as of 01/07/2010 on Firefox 3.5.7. I like using Agent Switcher as it is much more convenient. Thank you so much!!!

I still cannot understand the logic. Can someone please explain how method 5 tricks Megaupload?
Comment by Anonymous Anonymous on January 8, 2010 at 3:28 AM  
Method 5 is THE BEST! Worked like a charm, after trying 6 times to download not using it. NICE!
Comment by Anonymous Anonymous on January 9, 2010 at 4:29 AM  
Hm, so does Method 5 allow you to bypass the download limit? Or just the country slots?
Comment by Anonymous Anonymous on January 12, 2010 at 2:20 AM  
How does Method 5 work...I put it in exactly in Firefox, still getting "Please try again in 2 minutes" on Rapidshare....?

I'm using Mega manager.. haven't got any problems so far. It always say 'You have 3 autodownloads left' but after 3 or more downloads, it stays the same...
My computer will download files, however once downloaded, the file is untraceable. Is it fixable?
