did you by any chance upload the file in a password protected folder ?
If yes, then there is no other option but to provide a username/password.

Or, upload the file into a NON protected folder and change your link accordingly.

Can you provide a link to the file so we can have a look ?

Ok, here is what i suspect that you have done: you have uploaded the file (and linked it) to a folder that is HIGHER than your public_html.
These folders are INTENTIONALLY not available to the public, as per server settings. So the browser ask for username/passowrd to let you in.

Create a "zipfiles" (avoid the . dot between the words zip and files) folder inside your "public_html" folder, and link your files like

Please note that a 339 MB (!!!!) file like the one you upoaded is practically impossible (for normal ADSL connections) to play / download. I have a 20 Mb fast ADSL and still cannot download at more than 1 mb/sec under optimum conditions. whilst that becomes 50 Kb when the server is loaded, meaning more than 2 hr with my fast connection (HOURS with a normal connection)

I did like the music though....

Let me expplain: that 2082/...... etc. that you have added in your link, is your cpanel. So the user will be asked for a username / password. You CAN'T do that for public downloads.

Second problem: files that are easily recognized by your computer (as the .avi files) will NOT be downloaded / saved, but downloaded/opened (in this case directly in Window Media Player). A choice could be to place a text that would advise them to Right Click and select Save

Another option would be to have your files zipped, in which case the user can easily download/save by clicking on the link.

OKE MAN THANKS FOR ALL, i think that i do what you said about:place text : right click and select save . the rest is difficult for me. thanks for your time again .
