Using Net/FTP to download a file (FTP Error 550)

Hey guys,
I'm trying to connect to an FTP site and download the remote files. I
haven't done this via Ruby before, so please bear with me. I can connect
to the FTP site no problem, but when I try to download the file, I get
the error: "550 *** ERROR *** NO BATCHES FOR TRANSMISSION". I've
iterated over the items in the folder, which are 6 .dat files, so I know
it can see the files. Here is my code: do |ftp|
ftp.login(user="#{@ftp_username}",passwd="#{@ftp_p assword}",acct="")

ftp.list.each do |item|
puts item
ftp.gettextfile(item, localfile=File.basename(item))

any and all help is appreciated!
