  • Is this a GIS question? seems to be an access issue. – Mapperz Sep 26 '16 at 14:22

I just used pyModis the other day, it downloaded fine.

Two things to check:

1) Do you use the current version? The installation works like this:

# http://www.pymodis.org/info.html#how-to-install-pymodis
pip install pyModis

If that does not work, then try to upgrade:

pip install pyModis --upgrade

2) Register at NASA:

Importantly, to be able to download data you need user and password provided by NASA. Hence you need to be registered at NASA first!

New user registration at https://urs.earthdata.nasa.gov/users/new . Now login and move to your profile page (if you are already a registered user, just login).

Next enable the "applications" at: https://urs.earthdata.nasa.gov/home Now go to the "My application" tab and approve the following applications "LP DAAC Data Pool" and "Earthdata Search".

At this point you are able to bulk download data using pyModis (http://www.pymodis.org).
