    I have been trying to download some big videos for the last month. They worked well for the first few days-1 week. Now they got up to 98+ % and won't work. Why is this happening? I just cancelled them because im so mad. They were around 600MB :confused: :confused:
    Any help?

    use ares lite. never had any problem with stealing, stealing and more stealing.

    (ares is free, but if you want a ripped copy just to feel cool let me know)

    steve if your doing it from a P2P server (kaza imesh ect) then the people might have canceld the download.

    since your downloading and upload from someones computer they can cancel it anytime, you computer may try and start it again but if they move or deleat the file your screwed.

    i have been told that some people serch for what files you have and if you dont have much or are not shareing they squash you!!

    if its not p2p ten nevermind:dunno:

    YEah its P2p, but the download says anywhere from 5-28 sources. What I thought sources are different people who have the file?

    most servises let you select the bandwidth, so if they have it set low, are on a bad conection, or have many trying to get files from them it really slow.


    the worse is when the file is 99% compleat and it stops never to restart ashahhahhahah
