    Hi, first time poster here...I've been trying to download files the last few days, but Kazaa keeps telling me it needs more sources...

    I realize this happens from time to time, but it's suddenly happening for EVERY file I attempt to download, be it songs, images, videos, whatever. This has never happened before.

    Do any of you have an ideas of what might be happening here?

    Use Emule...once you've got it going...youre hooked! Emule Supporter to the max!

    About Kazaa..I used it alot..if there are no sources than disconnect and connect again (Close Kazaa and Re-open) Could be a bad supernode...read up on jumping supernodes!

    I've already switched to Kazza lite, but it's still asking constantly for more sources...Tried disconnecting, but that doesn't work either. Any other ideas?

    eMule is a good idea!!

    one reason may just be that your lovely isp is blocking port 1214, which is what kazaa uses!

    I'm not that computer savvy, so forgive me if my questions seem ridiculouos...But why would my ISP be blocking Kazaa's?

    Which Kazaa Lite do you have? I have a version with a tool called SpeedUp. You can get it with the Kazaa Lite at www.k-lite.tk. Also you have to check it when your installing it. But if you have it, use it. What it does is it keeps doing 'Search More Sources' forever. That might help you. Also, I don't think the ISP would prevent downloading. I could see if you had a freewall and you might not be able to download pass that.
