    Can't download programs, I can download photos/pdfs


    I recently installed Ubuntu 16.04 to my D: drive and since then I haven't been able to download programs to my C: drive. For some reason I can download photos, any idea how to fix this? Thanks!

    What browser are you using? IE11, Edge, Chrome etc?
    Is your download location automatically set to D: ?
    What happens when you choose to download a program? Is there an error message? Does the download complete?

    What do you mean?
    1. You installed Ubuntu on D:, but are you unable to download when running Linux? Or when running Windows?
    2. What does it mean "cannot download to C:"?
    3. Are you NOT seeing a download dialog that asks you for a target download folder?
    4. Or are you seeing that dialog but you're not able to select the target?

    I'm using Mozilla Firefox, I have it set to C: drive on my downloads. When I try to download a program it gives me a 'failed' error, but I can download photos fine.

    1. I'm able to download perfectly on Linux, I'm having issues downloading programs on Windows.
    2. I meant that I can't download programs on Windows, sorry. When I'm on Linux I can download programs, but that's set to my D: drive.
    3. That's correct. It tries to automatically download and fails, when I download a photo however it shows a download dialog.

    Thanks for the responses, hope you guys know what's up!

    I decided to just format my Ubuntu partition and everything is working fine now, I'll close this thread.
