Hi, this is the first time this happens. I am downloading the file to my device, my iPad, and it still occurs. I have the free account. I found the only way around it was to save the file to a folder in my Dropbox account,

Then you are definitely running into the streaming limit that @Mark referred to. The person you're getting the file from is likely on a paid account, so files they share can be streamed up to one hour before being cut off. As Mark described, and as you've seen, downloading the file and playing it on your own device (or from your own account) has no limit.
