    DUE TO AN ADOBE UPDATE THE MEDIA DOWNLOADER IS TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE.

    WE ARE WORKING ON RESOLVING THIS ISSUE .

    This has been on the site since I signed up, paid my money and cannot download the download tool.

    I signed up for this site to get videos to review for prom season before I bought the DVD's from promo only...no reply via email, no refund..its only 12 bucks..but still....shady

    Just download them without the downloader. Each song has a download button next to it...

    I have a buddy who travels nationwide DJing (Orlando, LA, Vegas, New York, Miami) and he swears by 8thWonder. He either gets his stuff from there, other DJ's, or does the remixes himself.

    The downloader has been broken for 3 years..

    they simply say to use the website to download.

    I believe this is an attempt to stifle the downloading of tons of files at once.

    I find it impossible to keep up with their content without a downloader.

    I'm still grandfathered in at $6, which is the only reason I keep it.

    We should all start e-mailing 8th wonder and complaining about the downloader.

    Can we organize a wide scale complaint session?

    Tell everyone you know who uses 8th wonder.

    Send at least one e-mail complaint about the downloader being broken for 3 years.

    I've been using 8thWonder for several years now and its been operating flawlessly. When it comes to making those ADOBE updates, which occur quite frequently, I usually hold off on making the update until I've had time to check out if any problems have been reported. As for their broken downloader, it may have been justifiably disabled because their server can't handle the traffic. I had to do that when I worked at NASA (been retired for 4 yrs now) because on one occasion, Rush Limbaugh advertised some pictures of Jupiter on our website and almost immediately our server was inundated with download requests ...... 2 million hits within 1 hour and the server kept crashing every 5 minutes. We had no choice but to disable the downloader until we could manage a fix.

    if you have the downloader on a machine already, it does work fine.. they took it off the site however, and will not allow anyone else to get it. once I lost the exe, I was out of luck.

    Do you still have the exe for the downloader?

    I know they accept paypal, but if I sign up with a credit card do they still process it using paypal?? I am against using paypal in any way possible.

    I have emailed cindy about it and have not heard anything back.

    Anybody here an 8 wonder member who do not use paypal to pay?

    Thanks!

    I download remixed tracks from time to time from them. No issues with clicking the link next to a song.

    The downloader is a hit or miss sometimes. For what we pay for 8th Wonder, we are satisfied. Wish they would add more Pop, country, titles. Be careful, sometimes the clean versions are mislabeled. Listen before you play.

    Looking at their website, they sound like a "too good to be true" type of vendor...especially considering the low price-point and # of tracks they claim to release/have monthly...
    Dog gone it, despite the negatives posted here, I am half tempted to try 'em out out of curiousity (since they're legal, what the heck - LOL).

    I have been using 8th Wonder for a few years now. The bill my credit card direct. I have contacted Cindy by email a couple of times and did get an answer (which was a very vague answer). They seem to have a lot of remixes.

    I'm not sure if it's me or not but I signed up a couple months ago and was able to download a few tracks.
    I received notice from my bank that i was charged my monthly $12.95 a week ago. I decided to log in and download some new tracks.

    I got this message.
