    How to download unsupported files on Android device?

    Whenever I try to download some of my favourite files on my Android device, the Browser pops a message saying that you cannot download files that are not supported by the device from the Internet. How can I download unsupported files on my Android device?

    By forcing Android to use an alternative file manager, you can bypass this issue and download almost any file type. For that download and install Astro File Manager from the Android Market.Launch Astro File Manager on to your device. Then press the menu button and choose More. Choose preferences from the list. In Preferences page, find and check Enable Browser Download. You can now download the unsupported file formats you’re your Android Browser.

    Hey friend ..

    I would like to tell you that the thing you are trying to ask is possible to do but you have to use some 3rd part apps for this purpose ..

    Some of these 3rd party apps which you can use are :

    - Astro file manager

    - Linda file manager

    Once you download any of these apps from the android market open up the app..
    Now you have to tap on the menu button and then choose 'more' option and choose preferences there.
    In preferences you have select and tick the option saying 'enable browser download' and you are done..
    Enjoy downloading unsupported file formats on your android device..

    Thanks
