torrentdownloads and limetorrents...

edited June 5 in Open Discussion
If I do a 'search' for something with Frostwire, I'll get lots of hits, including lots from both of those places in the title. Unfortunately, though they may have nice big numbers of 'seeders' supposedly, I've never been able to ever get either of them to actually start downloading. Ever.

Is there something I'm missing? I'm using Frostwire on Linux and all other download sites work fine, just TorrentDownloads and LimeTorrents don't ever download, they just show hits and seeds.

  • Can't you see leeches? Or Internet is acting up on your end. That's not an issue with me. I do it just fine and it starts and ends depending on seeders and my connection speed.

    Yep, see everything with them as I see with the other places that *do* download. It's really weird and kinda sucks as often those two have great number sizes of seeders so downloads would be nice and fast.
  • Well, this problem use to happen with me when I used to do torrents on BitTorrent. Max seeders, less leeches but my download speed used to get choked.

    I wonder if ISP has to do something with it. Give them a call, maybe they can help you.
  • I believe the ISP speed is not the issue. Please correct me if i am wrong.
