    Tutorials won't download. After clicking on Download on the left side of the Eclipse And Java: Free Video Tutorials page, it takes me to the sourceforge page and the following message,
    The "/1. Total Beginners" file could not be found or is not available. Please select another file.

    What am I doing wrong?

    I guess I'm not even at the total beginner level yet if I can't download successfully!

      Hi. I just tried it and it seems to work. Go to http://eclipsetutorial.sourceforge.net/index.html, click on Eclipse and Java for Total Beginners, click on Download on the left, and it takes you to the Sourceforge download page. Click on Total Beginners / Version 1.0 and you get the list of files to download. Good luck. Mark

      After taking your advice, I got to the Sourceforge download page. I clicked on Download Eclipse and Java Video Tutorials files. It then took me to the sourceforge page where I get the following message: ":Your Eclipse and Java Video Tutorials download will start shortly…" Then I wait and wait and wait, and oh yeah then I wait somemore. Nothing happens. I've tried on several occasions with the same result. On a different computer I was able to find tutorials 1-3, and 14-16. but not tutorials 4-13. How can I get these? What's the secret?

      I give up!! I get to http://eclipsetutorial.sourceforge.net/totalbeginner.html. I click on the hyperlink "project download page" in the paragraph under the heading "Eclipse And Java:
      Free Video Tutorials". The exact words are, "You can view lesson 1 without downloading it. To download all of the lessons, go to the project download page. Be sure to download the Tutorial Companion Guide (PDF format).". So this takes me to https://sourceforge.net/projects/eclipsetutorial/files/
      When this page opens, I can't view anything below Total_Beginner_Companion_Document.pdf
      I know that the page contains more info, it just won't display. The scroll elevator to the right of the page is all the way at the bottom but I still cannot view the entire page. I tried hitting the Page Down and End keys on my keyboard but no effect. What am i doing wrong?

      Hi Dave. It's hard to say what the problem is. Could be your browser settings or something. The download is standard Sourceforge stuff and not something I set up. You could try a direct link to the file. For example, this is the direct link to lesson 4: https://sourceforge.net/projects/eclipsetutorial/files/1.%20Total%20Beginners/Version%201.0/totalbeginnerlesson04.zip/download. Or you could try a different browser (maybe Firefox or Safari). Good luck. Mark

      Actually, that link just takes you to the main download page. Sourceforge evidently redirects you there or something. Sorry you're have the problems. Mark
