Warning, possibly insufficient sources"

Recommended Posts

Hi guys. Only used torrents for last three day so am really new to it. Installed BitTorrent and followed the setup procedurtes and all works fine for downloads of around 400M, but whenever I try for any thing over 1G I get "Warning.Possibly insufficient sources".

I have tried more than 6 different downloads making sure the seeder/leecher ratios were satisfactory but alas same error message.Can some kind soul please give me some helpful advice and please remember we were all new to this once.

Thanks.http://forum.bittorrent.com/public/style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif

Win7 Home Basic

Windows Essentials ( Which I have tried turning off)

Malwarebytes ( ditto )

ADSL2 running about 3MBS

using Demonoid and Isohunt as file source

I seem to have accidentally fixed my problem. If if can help anyone else I am not sure.My problem seemed to be fixed by disconnecting from the proxy server I was using.

If Slackware torrents are doing the same thing then something in your setup (either your internet security software or your internet provider) is blocking.

Configure or remove your internet security software (configure permanently, remove temporarily) to see if that helps.

I was using bitcomet before (I know :/) and downloading a torrent, but when I previewed it, it was a recorded version from a camera, so I stopped the download, deleted it, chose another 1, and it won't download now, switched to bttorrent, and it still does the same.

What if the slackware torrents are working but nothing else will?

If slackware torrents are working fine, it's purely the torrents you're choosing.

Enable the trackers tab (NOT COLUMN, right-click on one of the tabs you have and enable it) and give the status for the trackers.

I have the same problem with music and video torrents.

Not the same with chess software, though. And software in general. I´ve downloaded at least 2G of stuff.

Would that mean that it´s NOT the internet provider? What else could it be?

Any ideas please contact me

Same hire, but it depends, it's not generally files over 1GB, i download files over 20GB and no problems. But theres that one file i need badly right now, i cant get it, other torrents on the list work, seeding and leeching without any problems. Just that one file. Please help!
