I have the same problem - not recognised as Pro subscriber, but payment transaction completed OK yesterday. I also paid via PayPal, using Firefox 3.5.4 on Vista.
Also - not recognised. This is becoming very annoying.

I'm unable to download pdf's ;quite always the file is corrupted (1good:10bad ratio)
Also the download speed is terrible slow (05-06 K).
I have tried both Save Target As, and the customizepdf format.
I never had these problems when i was free!

Thanks for suggestions

I'm here to help.  

What kind of internet connection do you have?  I've found that our server uploads .pdf's at around 50 - 60 kbps, if it's going slower, it might be your service provider.

Are you in America, or accessing Instructables from some other country.  

Also, our .pdf's are meant to be viewed with Adobe reader.  If you're not running the latest version, can you try updating? 

If you're still having trouble, please send me a copy of one of the .pdf's that you're downloading from the site that isn't working for you so I can take a look at it.

please email it to me at: noahw at instructables dot com

Sorry for the inconvenience.  We'll try to get this working for you.

thanks for the help
i'm accessing from italy but i never had this kind of problem; particularly the corrupted pdf.
Everithing started with my upgrade to pro. When i had a free account all the pdf's were always good both downloaded with "save as" and "direct link".
I thought about a payment problem but i found my credit card correctly charged (if you need the operation's number tell me)
It isn't a bandwidth problem because ( e.g. from Pringles-Wind-Turbine-Pleech---Version-One) there are 2 embedded prd's in the page (2 layouts) and i can download them with no problems at my usually rate speed.
It's only the entire pdf that create some problem ;i tried "save as" , "direct link" and also "custonize" with no success.
I think that something has gone wrong with the pro-upgrade.
I'll check the ado version (uhm..i'll check the same), and try again the download:
I will tell you about.
Sorry if there is any error in language (i'm a bit rusty).
Thanks again and ciao!
