You need to provide more details.  What does your exact code look like?
What are the exact URLs you are having problems with?  What is the exact
value you are using for the Referrer?

You do know that servers are allowed to look at a Referrer and decide
whether to serve a file or not, don't you?  You are probably providing a
Referrer that the server does not recognize and/or allow to access the
specified file that is erroring.
