    well, everything in utorrent was going great until a few days ago when nothing it just stopped downloading anything!
    I'm running at 2mbit (i've run tests so i know its the best option), (so far i've downloaded the led zeppelin discography, blind guardian discography, slayer discography, and 2 saxon albums).

    Please suggest something, i'm clueless!

    You getting your downloads off a private torrent site? Some sites don't allow certain versions of utorrent, so you'd need to update. Try that and see what happens.

    Stop pirating stuff and you won't have this problem. Since when did GBAtemp support piracy?

    Iced Earth are pretty good, kind of in the same vein as Blind Guardian [​IMG].

    As for your problem I can't really help, maybe the tracker is down?

    I'd be nice if you gave us more details than just 'it's not working'. Where are you downloading from, pub or private site? Can you download from pub sites like mininova? Do you have a download cap? What ports are you using? Are you uploading anything/seeding at all?

    @gaisuto and pewpz: i can't really give any more information other than it won't start to download, and i'm using mininova.

    @sfunk: i'll keep that in mind

    @xcalibur: dht? can you explain this to me please?

    @offtopic: it says the port if working fine

    all trackers for utorrent were down for a while on the day he posted. they were back up a day later.
    i assume they're working again for him now as he hasnt replied.
