    My ISP doesn't have a newsgroup is there one that someone can recommend me to. I don't want to pay for some crappy newsgroup.

    Newsgroup newbie - help needed!!

    Hi Im new to newsgroups, just found this tut today in fact. Im on NTLWorld and Ive followed the instructions and managed to download some music files. First impressions from this were brilliant - super fast speeds! Now Ive tried downloading an XBox 360 game and im getting 0 kb/s download speeds and all the rar files are failing to download. Ive tried downloading a few different games to see if it was just a problem with that specific one but none them work. Went back to downloading a few more mp3s - downloaded ok - went back to trying 360 games and same problem. Any ideas what Im doing wrong? My hopes were so high after my initial success!!

    first things first, u need to make sure the 360 files arent 3 days+ old otherwise you'll either get failed files or slow d/l speeds. Second thing, make sure you have the newsgroup your downloading from. Newsgroups are simple after you have experience.

    found this website to be better than binsearch/newzbin combo
    http://www.nfonews.com/

    Having some issues with comcast. Before I got SSL service my download speed would hit 3500kbs for the first 10 sec then flattens out at 770 kbs. Giganews said it was probably my ISP. Now with SSL it goes up to 1400 kbs then back down to 700, then up and down. wtf is going on

    Is it safe to use software with keygens that uses online registering? I haven't done it cause I don't understand my security/safety options. Any links to guides on this or downloading anonymously would be great.

    Nice guide. Why isn't wasn't this one given a sticky (this is really good imo).

    ...Probably because almost all guides where un-stickied, then compiled into one big FAQ.

    Yesh this was helpful - I have been grabbing rar files individually this whole time - the nzb thing is much easier. I guess I should have bothered to read a tut then to try and click my way through the program solo!

    Hey, not all scene releases come with NZB's, so keep that in mind as well.

    Hey nice guide. Quick question I paid for a membership for giganews. I just saw your guide and found that my isp has a news group server. Do they keep track of what you download?

    Hi.

    Ive managed to download far cry on wii. Some files are missing,and i cant seem to find where i downloaded them on the groups. Im using giganews and newsbin as a newsreader.

    1. will i have to pay for newsreader once my trial has ran out. Is there a free good newsreader to use?

    2. how can i get the farcry files which were incomplete?

    PLEASE HELP

    Thats great. Thanks mate!
    Im just started to get into these newsgroup things. Ive found them to be exellent and far better than bit torrents. I find bit torrents to be a lot better and easier for searching for music. But for games this is the best. Giganews is just over £10 a month. It is worth every penny.
    Im getting my 360 flashed on sunday. Hopefully all these game downloads will work.

    alright you guys... now i am all confused!! does this mean that, if my isp is not providing us customers with a free newsgroup, that i cannot download stuff for freee?! ( in reference to the main tutorial ), because from what i understand, i cannot use the free softwares to download stuff off newsgroups if my isp provider doesnt have its own newsgroup server. i was hoping i could use the free softwares u mentioned to download whatever i wanted off ...... blah.. never mind.. this is getting too confusingg. honestly, i havent come across one single newsgroup tutorial that really helps the dummies out!

    If your ISP doesn't provide a free newsgroup service, then you obviously won't be able to get stuff off usenet unless you pay for access to a Usenet server.

    Hi. Has anyone got any websites where you can dl full DVD films from?
    Like you can dl the .nzb file from them without paying?
    Any good websites for 360 & wii games would also be appreciated.
