I download my plane, read the ReadMe file, do what the file said to do, and the plane doesn't appear in my game Sad (FSX). Any ideas on what could be going wrong?

Look on the bottom of the aircraft menu page and click "show all variations" it should show up then.
Be sure the window at the top says "all".

Make sure its not texture only, if you use fsx, if you download a 737, its easy to have texture only!
We have reached our cruising altitude,I am going to switch the seat belt sign off. Feel free to move about as you wish, but please stay inside the plane till we land ... it's a bit cold outside, and if you walk on the wings it affects the flight pattern.

I was already in "All variations". I've tried downloading planes a lot and so has my mom (she's knows a lot about computers). She did it 6 times following the instructions and still nothing happened. I think the problem is when I put the plane in my FSX/airplane file and all the effects in the effects file. Any other ideas?

They go in simobjects/airplanes not in the other folders that are in simobjects.

If the plane was originally made for FS2004 instead of FSX there could be a number of reasons for the plane not showing up in FSX which haven't been covered in the above posts.
Ask your Mom to dig up the correct name of the original .zip file and the name of the file library where you got it from and I'll have a look at it.
