Windows 7: My Windows 7 Computer Can't Find YAKiToMe.com And iMac Loads Fine?!

My Windows 7 Computer Can't Find YAKiToMe.com And iMac Loads Fine?!

I was using YAKiToMe.com to download text-to-speech mp3 files. This problem just started today when I was about to eat my Sausage Eggs.

I have this problem on my Windows 7 computer but not on my iMac So I don't think the website is temporarily unavailable.


I tried to open the page on all web browsers. All of them just show stupid fail pages. Internet Explorer says "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage," Safari says "Safari can't open the page," Firefox says "The connection has timed out," Opera says "Could not locate remote server" and Google Chrome says "Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to YAKiToMe.com.

I tried to open the page on my iMac computer using all web browsers. They don't show any stupid fail pages, the page loads fine.


I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit and Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.7. Please Help. Thanks!

The main home page seems to be working for me. It looks like instead of just making mp3 files available for download they want you to approve an add-on for Windows Media Player and to set up an account. Assuming you already set up an account on your Mac, have you logged into it on Windows? Does your account profile define you as a Mac user? (If so, you may have to set up a new account that clearly does not limit your profile to Mac status.) My guess is the Media Player add-on is just so you can play the files using the player on their website. But that shouldn't be needed just to download an mp3.

Here is an example of a straight forward mp3 downloadable file: http://twit.cachefly.net/ww0239.mp3
(IE may ask for permissing to download the file.) Notice that it ends in ".mp3". If you can't get it working, repost with the exact web link you are having a problem with or at least the name of mp3 file you are trying to download. I may have to jump through their hoops to set up an account in order to duplicate your problem.

I already have an account on YAKiToMe.com called tkovack1. I was able to sign into it on my iMac computer and also my Windows 7 computer before this problem started. I checked to see if any stupid fail pages show up or loads the page fine on all web browsers. Nope. They all still show stupid fail pages. Can anyone help? Thanks!

As I said, I can get to it fine, I'm in San Diego, CA. Maybe your ISP or your Company is blocking it. Maybe it was added to your HOSTS file in such a way that it points to a bad address. Have you tried turning off the firewall on your router or on your PC (Windows Firewall) temporarily?

Thank you for all your replies! YakiToMe.com is now working on my Windows 7 computer. I do not know why YakiToMe.com wasn't working on my Windows 7 computer, but now it is working. I still don't have any problems on my iMac computer. Thank you very much!
