    Can you report back if the problem still persists. Might have found a workaround (still not found the reason why this happens to people).

    Too bad we rarely get feedback apart from people reporting it :)

    Damn, it works fine in Chrome 14 and IE9, but it's still there in FF7.

    Maybe I should report this to Mozilla instead :(

    Hae you tried logging out and back in, and clearing your cookies?

    Which browser are you using?

    We need a little more information.

    Hope to have this solved a.s.a.p.

    People experiencing this bug please for once give us some proper feedback which steps you actually took when you ran into it.

    Its not reproduce-able for me as I never have this error.

    Be as specific as possible when reporting bugs and not just say it doesnt work :)

    Same problem here....

    I used to be able to clear cookies and it would work but now I just get Invalid File ID anytime I click on a download at RaceDepartment. Clearing cookies no longer works. I am using IE9. This happens on every download on your site. Quite a bummer.

    Downloaded and installed Chrome and I get the same result =(. It's not just me it is all my friends as well. There is a problem with your site unfortunately. I know that is probably not what you want to hear.

    I got it once before as well. As I recall, I tried to download something when I wasn't logged in. I was then asked to log in to proceed, and got the invalid file id error after I logged in.

    I'm getting the same error for that file. Must be something wrong with that upload then.

    EDIT: That file does not exist anywhere in the Race category. Maybe someone moved or deleted it.

    The file was probably removed, that gives also an invalid id message :) Thanks for including the link
