The problem is when you try to use it, it appends the file name as the hex timestamp (without an extension) which is at the end of the URI which isn't the ideal way of downloading things. So I tried using the rewrite module to move the file name to the end of the link.

Apparently it's problem in secure download module.  Have you tried 
standart secure link module instead?
