New problem:Blocked from downloading for no good reason.

I have been blocked from downloading at sexasian18, supposedly for exceeding the daily download limit.
The message I received was:
"Access blocked: EXCESS BANDWIDTH USE BANNED FOR 15 HOURS
If you have been downloading a lot today, you probably exceeded your daily bandwith usage limit. Come back tomorrow..
If you have not been downloading a lot today, perhaps other people may be accessing our member's area using your password. Sometimes easy to guess passwords are comprimised by hackers. Your password may have been circulated on the Internet. For this reason, your user name may have been blocked."

Block time message issued approximately 09:50 am PST, Wed July 15, 2009.
I downloaded 7 files (2 videos, 5 zip photosets), for a total of 2.98 GB. (I downloaded the files into a single folder, so I could keep track of the total amount of downloads, since I read there was a daily download limit of 12 GB.
My username and pasword were issued by CCBill. I did not choose the username and password myself. The password and username are both security tight, in the sense they are both a mixture of lowercase and uppercase letters, with numerals as well, in an apparently random order.
I was just issued the password today, along with my membership.
It was irritating that I had problems getting into the member area of this site, because the popup page to accept my username and password did not appear on my computer, until I had tried to log-on for about 2 hours.
Now I am getting an Excess Bandwidth notice, and am blocked from site access for 15 hours, when my bandwidth usage was far below the maximum I am allowed. The daily limit is 12 GB, and I downloaded 2.98 GB.
I did not view any of the photoset galleries or the videos at this site (streaming), because I wasn't sure if viewing the photoset galleries or viewing a streaming video would count as part of my total bandwidth usage.
So far, my experience with this site has been frustrating.
I need to specifically check to see whether viewing a photoset or a streaming video will count toward the total daily download limit. But I have not viewed a photoset or any streaming video at the site today, which is my first day of membership.

To be cut off after downloading 2.98 GB, with a supposed daily maximum download of 12 GB, is ridiculous.

GCode (101) It has to do with using a download manager. Certain download managers are not allowed here when I was a member, I think I was using FlashGet at the time which did something that increased my download speed. The site saw it as using up to much bandwith and kicked me for 24 hours. I used DownThemAll from mozilla and had no problems afterwards. I think you may be running in to the same problem. At first, I thought it had to do with the download limit which was 8 GB at the time but I only downloaded about 4 GB. Then, the next time I just downloaded using mozilla without DownThemAll! and got to 8 GB. So, the next time I used DownThemAll! and got to 8 GB. Then, the next time I used FlashGet again to test and the same thing happened, blocked for excessive bandwith after about 2-4 GB's. So, my guess is it has to be the download manager you are using.

Thanks for the tip, Gcode. Actually, I used Firefox browser and DownThemAll download manager to download my files from this site. I used DownThemAll because I thought that if a file download is interrupted, DownThemAll might allow the download to be resumed, instead of restarted from the beginning of the file download.

After I got the "exceeded download limit" message, I looked around their site, and found in the "Knowledge Base>Download Related>Can I use a download manager to download movies?" the following statement:
"Yes, you can [use a download manager], but please remember to setup your download manager to download using one (1) thread only. Multiple download threads will be counted towards your bandwidth. We will not issue any refund that is related to the use of multi-threaded downloads."

If I was a lawyer, which I am not, I would read that statement to say that "mulitiple download threads will be counted towards your bandwidth." Actually, that is exactly what they wrote.

If they miscount my bandwidth usage, that is their error, not mine.

I was cut off from access at 2.98 GB, when the daily limit is 12 GB.

And if they refuse me access because of their error, I see little or no reason to pay for service which they are not providing.

Sorry, I realize in the real world things don't always work, and everyone likes to say the blame lies with someone else.

So I will either cancel the service, and tell my credit card company I was billed improperly, or try to get over the irritation and wait until I am allowed back in, to see what other problems this site dumps on me. Grrrrr. (Tony the Tiger).

Thanks again for taking the time and effort to share your experiences.

Yes, I remember this being a pain in the ass. However, if you do love JAV as much as I do, this site is in the Top 3 for getting the best content from Japan. But, I can see the frustration in getting booted for something as simple as downloading 2 or 3 files at the same time and I do remember this pissing me off as well. The thing is, I think I was just starting to use download managers when I was a member here and had no clue what I was doing, so I think I was just downloading 1 or 2 movies a day with just IE and FireFox and did not get the bandwith errors and kicks until the very end of my term when I attempted FlashGet and tried DownThemAll! the first few times. I remember actually thinking it was an error on my part. I suppose if I ever do rejoin (I am trying to join J Sex Network again and Asia Movie Pass for the first time before this site again, times are hard lately), I will do an updated review and let others know about all this nonsense with the download managers. Until then, hopefully others can read these comments and get a better picture as to how the site works. GL and if you don't get a refund or anything, I'd recommend Aino Kishi and Sora Aoi videos :)

The main attraction of this site (and almost any site, as far as I am
concerned) is how attractive are the models. Some of my favorites are Maria Ozawa, Cecil Fujisaki, Sora Aoi, Saori Hara, Tina Yuzuki. Maria Ozawa is absolutely gorgeous.
Aino Kishi is a new one for me.
Thanks for the recommendation. I will give her a try.

I would love to try all the different JAV sites that look to be worthwhile. But with limited cash, I thought this site would, because of its large content and apparently good-quality videos and photosets, be a good site to belong to.
I just need to get back into the site, when they unblock me, to see what I can download.
I did send a message to the help desk explaining that I was blocked and should not have been. But an email reply can take 1-2 days, and I should have access sometime tomorrow. But I am interested in what the support email will say, because I did explain clearly that I only downloaded 2.98 GB out of a daily limit of 12 GB. I also mentioned being blocked for about 2 hours because no popup page for username and password would pop up on my PC. Some help desks are almost useless, and there is the additional problem, I assume, that the help desk might be in Japan, so English would be a second language. But I am curious to see if the help desk will offer anything beyond a mechanical message that "We're sorry about your problem. Hope you feel better soon". Some help desk emails are entirely mechanical (form letter), and it seems they haven't even bothered to read the email requesting help.

jd1961 (95) For what it's worth, when I was a member there, I only downloaded 1 file at a time. It goes twice as slow if you download 2 at a time, so why do it?

Any info on what customer service said? I am curious as to what their take on the situation is and what they had/have to say.

I'm not sure what you mean when you say downloading two files at the same time goes twice as slow. I use DownThemAll, and the download rate for 1 or 2 or even 3 files (the total amount of kb/s) remains pretty steady. The total amount of time to download 3 files is not longer when you download 2 or 3 files at the same time. Actually, it's slightly shorter. And by downloading 3 files at once, you don't have to wait around for one file to finish downloading, before you start downloading the next one. (You can do the downloading automatically, once you start the downloads.)

I used to use Free Download Manager, which let me schedule the downloads separately. But when I updated my Firefox browser some time back, the Free Download Manager program somehow got messed up, and did not work with Firefox.

Maybe I will try to fix the Free Download Manager program, because it was very easy to use, and very convenient in scheduling downloads, and really worked well.

When you want to download a large number of separate files, you need a download manager to handle the chores, or you will be spending a huge amount of time at the computer keyboard.
-------------------------------------------------
But if you download more than 1 file at a time at this site, you are heavily penalized on your download limit. So it's not worth it.

I have not had any reply from customer support yet on my emailed problem. The site advertises 24/7 support, and that any email request will be handled within 48 hours. I sent my email yesterday morning, so it's been about 30 hours so far.
Actually, the counter for download bandwidth limit resets each day at Midnight EST (I read that somewhere inside the site.) So even though my notice of being banned from the site stated 15 hours of banishment, I was able to get into the site and download starting around 9pm PST. I found that by accident when I went to the site and hit a download button, and the stupid file started downloading (stupid, because I had already downloaded a previous copy of that particular photoset).
What really surprised me was that I downloaded that file, 43 MB, in only a few seconds. My download speed is only about 157 kb/s, so the computer somehow used the previous copy already on my PC, or some other copy that it stored in some temporary storage folder, to make that new file copy, even though it was being downloaded from the paysite.

Anyway, I will report what customer support tells me, if I get a reply. At some paysites, they advertise 24/7 email support, but the truth is that you don't get any response to your emails.
