    I paid for uTorrent before I found out that Bittorrent is free. Anyway, I have continued to use uTorrent because the screen seems more user friendly thatn Bittorrent. Initially, I was able to just click on "open" when I found the file, then after I installed Bittorrent (and subsequently uninstalled it), I have not been able to open the files anymore. The only method that worked was dragging the files to the folder. Any ideas ?

    Second question...what is the BEST site for finding movie titles ? Mininova seems good, but Bittorrent seems limited. Any suggestions as to the website most people are using that has the largeest number and best selection of files ?

    Thanks to all.

    Danaw, the reason you have to register is because it's quite a closed community. And it protects the uploaders whilst making sure there are very few LEECHERS who leech all the files and don't contribute to the site by seeding.

    i havent read all the posts so apolagies if i repeating anything.
    i know many torrent sites but the bests have to be http://www.Mininova.org and http://www.ThePirateBay.org
    oh and if there is a torrent site you are nor sure about look it up on http://www.wikipedia.org

    to lars667 i kno your suspended but, if you are reading this, the reason why you cant get torrents from suprnova is because it is now defuncted and has changed to mininova as far as my knowledge goes.

    "I've got a small problem i downloaded "NEED FOR SPEED" and it tells me to "extract and mount" .Well I found A software called "POWERISO" but I have to pay to extract and mount files over 300 mb.

    Anybody know A free program that can do this task?"

    well you dont have to get the poweriso its the same as a isobuster so if you have a bit torrent which im sure you do then you can just search that at. 2torrents.com and you wouldnt have to pay just search youll see......

    Hi there! This is my first post on the site. I've been browsing for a few days and have found it very useful for a variety of things!!

    Anyway, I'm a new user to torrent downloading (haven't downloaded anything yet!) I'm using BitComet and was reading the guide that's on this site, and it said to limit the upload at 90% of the overall upload speed in the preferences, and there is a warning in BitComet for DSL users (of which I am) to limit their upload rate under their line capacity, which I'm assuming means the same thing as the guide suggested. Unfortunately, I have no idea how to find out what my maximum capacity for uploads is. If someone out here does know how to discover this, I would be very grateful. If I keep it at maximum it apparently really slows down my download speed, but I don't want to play with it and have it set too low, so other users can't upload well from me. I'm using XP Pro, don't know if the OS makes a difference in finding out or not, but just in case!

    Thanks!

    @ dentsch

    I would recommend Utorrent instead.
    (as your bit-torrent client.)
    very small but a BIG powerhouse.
    Http://www.utorrent.com
    As far as to test your internet speed,
    Goto any of the many online sppedtest applications,
    And test your speed,
    (Utrrent offers this built into the program itself.)
    It will read diagnose and apply the setting for you.
    Much easier gfor a 'new' user.
    Good luck and welcome to the forums.

    Thanks so much. Sorry, I should have searched on the net for something like that before posting. I don't want to be an annoying newbie! :)

    Just wanted to comment.... if you do go and get utorrent, please seed.. even if its just for an hour or so... you will find most things w/ ease.. and most things will be fast as hell... but I have found a couple things here and there that people could be a lil more seed friendly with... thats all

    but yes, utorrent is the best I've had so far, but I've never been invited to a private torrent either... which is funny because I have terabytes of stuff on DVD.. (I buy a 50 pack a week) I like to collect things I guess, but I don't yet know how to add my own stuff for sharing to utorrent because I've only been using it a week or so and have yet to try.... maybe I'll look into that today... wouldn't imagine it being that hard.
