Hi,
This seems to be one of those 'what simple thing am I doing wrong' type of a problem.

I'm trying to use the MODIS Import Tool for ArcGIS.

Looking at the messages from my processing a MODIS tile has been intersected using my boundary.

It then gets the error - "Error downloading images. Note: This is sometimes due to imagery source issues. Please try again shortly"

This problem keeps recurring.

The tool is found at   http://www.pecad.fas.usda.gov/cropexplorer/modis_import_tool.cfm

If you have any ideas, your thoughts would be appreciated.

Cheers,
Don

Does your internet connection pass through a proxy that requires authentication?  The MODIS Import Tool uses the python urllib module to download the images. The urllib documentation notes that:
Proxies which require authentication for use are not currently supported; this is considered an implementation limitation.
