Won't download, only popup box with description when pressing download

Hello all,
I just bought Doggcatcher on Amazon and only have been able to download a few episodes. When I press the download button I get this popup that describes the episode, but no download.

What gives?

Thanks,
mrscottishman

Tried that, but didn't get the Tee Shirt

Well, that didn't work, thanks for trying.

Any other suggestions?

You click add podcast and it says it already is added.
Then you click download and a black box pops up with the description of the podcast, but no download.

I am using a Kindle Fire if that helps.

Thanks to all,
mrscottishman

On the episodes where you are

On the episodes where you are having the problem, what is displayed..."audio" or "view". If it's "view", then that feed doesn't have any audio files associated with it, just show notes, which is what displays in the popup.

This is just one feed having the problem right?

More Details

Thanks for trying to help. I bought this and wished it would work.

Here I am with APM Marketplace. So I add the feed. Then I push the + to check and it says feed already added. So I go to the episode list and press download. A black bordered box opens up and says in the top black boarder
06-19-12 Marketplace. Then in the white area it says the federal reserve is meeting today and tomorrow. Then at the bottom it says ok. I click ok and try another one on APM Marketplace (it is not the only podcast that does this, in fact I find only a few work and download) It does the same thing basically and says " . . . We hear about the scent of money" and so on. So I take it this is an audio podcast and there is something to hear. On the left under the episode names it says 1 day ago/12MB/mp3.

So in short, when I push download, instead of downloading I get some sort of description of the episode.

You are in the add feeds

You are in the add feeds screen, to listen to a podcast in feeds screen, press the back icon to feeds screen & scroll down to the APM Marketplace, press on the feed & press on a episode.

That Seems to work

When I go back to the feeds list and then go back to the download page I came from, then download button seems to work now.

Confusing when the download button won't download. I feel a little foolish now, but who wouldn't expect the download button/link to download?

Thanks!
will do more research,

You might be running an older

You might be running an older version of DC. In older versions the add feed screen used to say 'download' but displayed the notes. The current version says 'description' (or something like that). You're not alone being confused by that.

Thanks for posting.

Better every day

No problems since. I take back all the things I said and thought when pressing the download button over and over and nothing happening.

Will recommend it on my blog, but if there is a newer edition I would like to try it.

I bought it on Amazon, are they up to date on versions?

Amazon lags behind because

Amazon lags behind because apps need to go through their approval process. I'll be posting the current release there this weekend so it's should be available to the public in a week or two.
