Hello Kathey,

Make sure you have a premium account in rapid share to be able to download it without any limitations. Because if it's only a Free account downloads has several restrictions. Like you can download unlimited files but you are placed in a waiting time.

That's the reason why you can't download it simultaneously with a download manager.

How about waiting for 30 minutes or an hour or so ,then try downloading it again.

Thanks for Reading,
