ok so everytime i download something (tool - undertow (the album), specifically), it start to download and does about .8% and then says:

Error: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.

What should I do? If I click start, then it does about .1% and then says the same thing.


Another thing....what are:

1) seeds
2) what are they.

EDIT: I have vista. does that matter?
Check out my music, if you please.

you cant call yourself a fan if you dont respect the artists enough to pay for their music.

the number of seeders is the number of people in the swarm who are uploading the file.
more seeds= more speed. It sounds like your trying to use the files

Does it do it with any other torrents? Tried reinstalling uTorrent?


i downloaded Metallica's Cunning Stunts all the way through without any problems, so it seems to work with videos, but not audio (i tried downloading john mayers continuum too)

and no i haven't tried that. Do you think it would work?

Try using a different torrent. Look for one on (I'm not sure if this is against the rules or not, if it is please feel free to delete my comment) www.torrents.to or mininova.org

Lol.

No seeds = no complete download. Look for one with a high seed-to-leech ratio. Basically more seeders than leechers.

you cant call yourself a fan if you dont respect the artists enough to pay for their music.


So, say you download The Black Album, and you absolutely love it. You listen to it all the time and you're inspired to write music by it. You then download the rest of Metallica's discography, and love it to bits.

You're not a Metallica fan, even though you're inspired by their music, their lyrics, and what they do? You're not a fan unless you pump out $13.95 to the RIAA?

Idiot.

Should work. Seeds are people who have the complete file (100% downloaded) and are uploading to other people. It's still possible to complete a download without seeds though, as if collectively all the leechers (downloaders) have the entire file, everyone can get it it will just take a long ass time. On the right of the progress bar there should be a number (under the % i think) if it's below zero you're screwed and need to get a new torrent, as that is the number of unique copies of hte file in the swarm. (as in how many different complete files you can make if everybody pooled what they've downloaded together)

The creators of South Park have a great theory..."it doesn't matter how people watch it, as long they enjoy it".
