30 Days Of Dead FAQs

Q: How come I can't download today's track on my iPad or mobile device.
A: Although you can stream today's track on your iPad or iOS device, if you want to download the track you will need to download it on your desktop computer.

Q: How can I tell if download has started?
A: If you are in Internet Explorer or Firefox, a pop-up will appear on your screen asking you where you'd like to save the file. If you are in Safari, an indicator will appear in the top right corner to show that the download is in progress. If you are in Chrome, a button should appear at the bottom left hand side of your browswer to indicate that the download is in progress.

Q: The track downloaded but I can't seem to find it...
A: The location of your download depends on the applications you use and your operating system. If you are using Firefox, Chrome or Safari, the download is most likely in your Downloads folder.

If you use iTunes or Windows Media Player: The download will automatically import songs into your chosen media library. This is where your music will be stored.

In some instances, files are saved to your computer using your Web browser's default save location. Search for the files on your computer or check your Web browser settings to determine the default location for saving downloaded files.

Q: I still can't get the download to work.
A: If you are unable to download the track while using your current browser, please try installing the Chrome web browser on your machine.

Available for just "The Day" per East Coast time?

So can we only download the day's track 'per East Coast time'? I just checked it about an hour ago- before 11pm West Coast time and I was seeing DAY 2 and couldn't download Day 1.
What's up with that? Why is this site East Coast centric?

Didn't work until I downloaded Chrome. Then no problem.

Shake it ..........Shake it

I'm pretty tech challenged. If there is an easy way of downloading this for a guy who has only ever used IE (to my knowledge), assistance would be appreciated.
or...maybe the issue is being resolved, and the powers that be will make up for it with two tomorrow? 1 vote for a China>Rider

download disaster

It's all coming back to me. This was a hassle last year getting it to work. Chrome wasn't any help.

Logged out on 30 days page

I stay logged in on every page but the 30 Days of Dead. I'm guessing that's why I can't DL or guess the show.

Download OR Guess - not working

I'm using IE8. I'll try @ home on my iMac, but really....the compatibility issues on this site drive me nuts sometimes! LOL.
I say that lovingly. BUT...I can't d/l (even though I already have this show) and everytime I log in, then go to the 30 Days of Dead page, the site logs me out, for whatever reason. I want to officially put my guess in, but HOW do I do it?
