I used to be able to download the DH 2005 maps without any trouble. BUT my computer crashed and I had to do a system recovery. now the maps download as html modules. Not as zipped files. I used to click "GO GET IT"... save in my computer...c/program files...atari...DH2005...game...custom levels... Then I clicked save. The maps always downloaded as zipped files. I extracted them and they showed up in my game. No sweat.

check the extensions zipped files always have extension   ".zip"
DH2005 files have ".spk" they do not require unziping there are both in the download section, check to see if your system has a program to unzip files
such as WinZip , if not you will have to download it.

if you try to download one of the Hybrid maps you will need to install the hybrid patch which is available in the download section of this site.

Still no luck. I have winzip. When I download the maps an internet explorer blue E modules downloads.I'm not a spring chicken anymore. Served in 1st. Cavalry Airmobile during Vietnam.  Not computer savvy. DH 2005 is the only game I own.  Don't know what's wrong or how to fix it.

from your description of the problem it is your browser not the game

try downloading the maps in a different browser such as Firefox or chrome Sounds like maybe your IE might be corrupt .

just a thought I use all three browsers on my computer and they all work well to download maps another trick might be to click on save as and save the file to your desktop then unzip it , go into the folder it creates and drag the .spk file into your custom levels.
