Vuze (Azures) Problem..

Postby Psychonaut00 » Sun Apr 26, 2009 2:35 am

I just have a very weird problem with Vuze and my downloads at the moment.

All of the sudden I cant get any of my downloads to start/connect, even though one has 1000+ seeds; but the strangest thing is my download speed is maxing out, appears to even be going beyond its limit, even after clearing all files, has someone hacked me?

My uploads appear to be working fine.

When you say your download speed is maxed is that using one of the online speed testers or AZ itself?
Its highly unlikely your been hacked or got some spambot (that usually results in you uploading lots, not downloading).
I would recommend trying a different client (open your current torrents and point to the same path as AZ was saving it to and it'll find it so you wont redownload). If that works ok you know AZ has just got a bit muddled and a clean reinstall should solve it.

Don't post a link to what your downloading.. more often than not torrents that have 1000's plus seeds
and 1000's plus, 1000's plus Leechers the file itself is a fake.
The download will never complete and your bandwidth will be consumed trying to find a client
that is not sending a constant stream of bad chunks.

I will often look for torrent with 400 or less seed's because of this...

Unless you really know a torrent with a 1000+ seeds is real assume it's fake.

If you really want to see what i'm talking about...
Go to any public torrent site and type in the name of a current movie or even a movie
thats going to be released in the next week or so...
You'll see that the anti file trading companys have been very busy uploading fake torrents to these sites.
A torrent with 6500 seed's... Really? seash.

Well my download wasnt maxing out, my stupid newb mistake on that point; was bytes, not Kb's :oops:

The files are fine I believe, UFC97, I had no problem downloading it through Utorrent, which I am using now.

Maybe I am just impatient? Even with Utorrent some dont seem to be connecting to anything with several hundred seeds while others with a few dozen seeds work fine.
