The bit torrent files are essentialy just a link, they dont contain any acctual data. You need to download them via a Bit torrent client.

hi ya delta...i already have that bit torrent client on my system.
Thats the problem - what the hell do i do now??.
I have some bit torrent music files, namely "The Kleptones' Yoshimi vs the hip hop robots", and screamadelica remix album and a progidy remix album.
My bit torrent client software on my desktop has the names of these files inside the the box, above the progress bars, but nothing happens.
The progress bar stays at 0%.......there is no activity whatsoever.
How do i get the files to start downloading inside the bit torrent box?
HeLP please!

thanx in advance, kiwi

BitTorrent relies on people doing the same as you, trying to download, if nobodys downloading and the origonal file is gone you download wont start. Its gets more annoying when you download a 6Gb linux distro just to find nobody else has the file beyond 92%

Or it could be that you have the pause button clicked. Make sure its not paused.

Yes, I would try Azaerus too. Torrents are based on how much people are sharing the same file.
