What error message do you have for the tracker status on the trackers tab (with one of the problem torrents highlighted)?

i have the same problem!!! for days now!! and sometimes 1 link does decide to do something but most of them (+50 with some +10k seeds and 1k leeches) i've tried everything, disabled my fire wall and AVG but still it wont do anything, i thought it could have been the program but bittorrent/µtorrent do pretty much the same thing, i try to open them both and sometimes 1 of them works slow but is doing something whilst the other one had the exact same things in them and doesnt do anything =/
i dont have an errormessage, i've had one which was something like *could'nt connect with (insert random personname)* where now it says *IPv6 is installed* and *got teredo address (insert long address)*
i've tried rebooting, ive tried restarting so seriously, what should i do now =/ i've used this for almost a year and havent had any problems, anywhere! ow and its not the internet cause ive been at 3 different places with different internet, where i've downloaded tons of times and doesnt work this time while on my friends laptop, with the same torrent and same internet same program is downloading at 2mb/s
thank you for taking the time to help me! im very thankful this forum exist!
hope it will get solved soon!

Unfortunately, without exact error messages (not saying "something like") or the tracker status information I asked for above, we can't help.

[2011-07-15 23:54:08] IO Error:1168 line:404 align:-99 pos:228257792 count:403 actual:-99

then in the general tab:
lost: ¨¨kb (to hasherrors)

i've also had an error sometimes saying *cant find '(name of file)'* and then it turns red, i click play, it downloads for a minute (sometimes even less) and i have that msg again..
this error was just a pop-up.

is this good enough? i hope you can help me now =)
have a great day!

Are you skipping files in the torrent?
Have you tried force re-checking (from the right-click menu)?

sorry, i couldnt see your reply, i was beginning to thing i was being ignored..
yes i am skipping files, i've always done that and i have tried the re-checking several times..
the weird thing is now that bittorrent doesnt work at all and µtorrent is, while having the exact same files...

also how can it show p.ex. 1k seeders and or leeches at the place i got the link, and have only 1 or 2 or even none when i open it in torrent, and why does it not upload if there are no other seeds that i could see and have 1 leech online with 0%, i've never understood that, i know its a different question so i understand if you have to ignore it, but it would be very nice if you would reply, you see, i am very curious about that for a while^^

ow and thanks for the earlier reply, i appreciate the help!!!!!!!^^

Skipping files is a known cause of your issue.

I don't know a lot about computers but since I downloaded the new version everything is downloading really slowly - I mean like 12 kb/sec... Tonight it is up to 120 kb/sec but this is still really slow compared to what I am used to. I called my internet provider today thinking the fault may have been there - nope... Everything else downloads fine and fast its ONLY using this program that everything goes in slow motion..?? Not sure if it is this program?? I have checked all the settings I can and it all seems fine...

There is no error message to show you because it IS working, just at snails pace. I have never had this problem before and I have never written on this forum before, but I figured if I add to this thread and enough people tell you the same thing maybe you might look into it.

I'm sorry but the amount of people posting in this thread with a non-matching issue is forcing me to close it.
