    I have been trying for the last 5 hours to get my torrents to work. No matter what I do they won't download. I'm new to torrents, so maybe it's just the fact that I have no clue what I am doing.

    I've followed all of the how to guides I can find on creating, and uploading torrents with Utorrent. I've searched for the best trackers, I've uploaded my torrents on 10 different sites, and even my own host, but when I switch comps to try to download my torrent...Nothing.

    It's really getting frustrating because I can't find an answer, and I know it's something extremely basic to many of the experts on here.

    Try moving the files you are trying to seed/upload to whatever folder your uTorrent is set for completed files. Than go to whatever site you uploaded the torrent to, download your own torrent, open it and you should get a nice little popup in uTorrent saying that this data already exists.

    PM me if that doesn't work still.

    I have the same problem. Been downloading torrents for years. Tried recently to upload and it has never worked for me. Uploads successfully but after a couple of minutes the file disapears.

    when you download other torrents can you seed them after the torrent is finished?

    after you upload your torrents you appear as a seeder (1) in the uTorrent box?

    At least it's not just me.

    The problem is I have a program similar to SSM, so I have no other clue on how to get the # of downloads I need. If anyone could help me get my torrents working I would put your CPA Email submit offers into my rotations as a big Thank You.

    I know this is simple, but are you uploading the correct file after you create the torrent? You need to upload the file.tor

    Yes I am.


    I'm going to make a quick video to show everyone exactly what I am doing to create and upload my files with Utorrent.

    I appreciate the responses so far.

    All is good..i don't see why should not work this is strange..try to put your file
    in a folder and then when you create it add directory with the file..if you use a firewall or some protection in your computer turn it off..

    Have you tried what I said in a previous post?
    Download it from the same pc you are seeding it from.
    Because I'm showing two peers and no seeds.
