    Share p2p problem

    Have recently started using share, am on a slow connection so a BIG fan of any resummable download software

    The problem is, while uploading seems to be working fine, downloads just wont start

    I have about 7 things in the download queue, nothing seems to start, everything's light blue in color.the status in the downloads shows complete blocks for everything.

    what could be wrong?

    Re: Share p2p problem

    When you p2p a file, you have to have people seeding the file. Since your download isn't starting, very few people must have the file you want to download. So your program is pinging each individual seeder until one or two start sharing the file.

    Re: Share p2p problem

    A problem with Share is that files that were uploaded long time ago automatically get corrupted due to the way it caches files, so you often can't even start download. I'd check your file dates and if they are pretty old, you might have to give up.

    Re: Share p2p problem

    Checked some of them , at least two show they were last updated 12- 2- 23. Does share work like PD that you have to have a cache of some size before downloading starts?

    Re: Share p2p problem

    So, the files are up to date, but...how many "users" or seeders does the file have?

    Re: Share p2p problem

    I don't mean the date last updated, I mean the date that the file was first uploaded.
    Think of the files as food...they degenerate in quality over time once they separate from their root and eventually rot. In this case the files you are trying to download may already be missing pieces.

    If the files you are trying to download have multiple search results, try different ones. Often on Share you can't really tell which files are bad and which are good because bad files don't automatically get deleted off the network.
