uhh, why are you trying to protect the dir with .htaccess? Firstly, for people to be able to download those files they'll need to know the IP/URL that you are using to host the files. Secondly they will need to know the exact file name to download them, unless they try to grab the entire directory. Just dissable directory listing on the folder which contains the files.

It's very easy for people to get your downloadurl setting. They just enter a server, type sv_downloadurl in the console, and there it is...the server's sv_downloadurl setting. I've had people in the past use my redirect for their servers (review your logs) without my permission.

What did you enter in your.htaccess file? If you are controlling based on referrer or browser type, you won't be able to download it via ie.
