Well, gang...

There are actually only two questions asked here in this thread !!!

Sort of hard to help if a question is not asked, hmmm ?


So, ask away and be sure to note the link >

System details - Help us help you > Provide these details when you post !

which you will find in my signature below...
The LimeWire FAQ links won't hurt too much even if you are using the superior BearShare !

wahootony April 6th, 2008 05:21 PM

I am also new but I do have a question,whenever I download anything it almost always say awaiting more sources or need more sources is there a way for me to get a better connection or to get downloads better?

AaronWalkhouse April 6th, 2008 07:24 PM

The best thing is to run your searches again. Finding more sources for the downloads will improve your odds.

Joshnicolle April 6th, 2008 09:21 PM

hi im new and i have a question but dont no where to ask it. Am i supposed to post my own thread? if so, how?

AaronWalkhouse April 27th, 2008 02:31 AM

Check that your burner software is set to make a music CD instead of a data CD.

jackie boy April 27th, 2008 12:40 PM

Please help
Hi all you lovely new people join the club :laugh_2:.

I wonder if there is an effective way of getting people not to ignore a post? I've got 0 responses so far to my post entitled 'not downloading fileerror and I can't start using bearshare until I get some help.

Can anyone be of assistance? :Smilywais:

Blackhorse 70V October 12th, 2008 05:21 PM


You're not being ignored. I haven't used BS in years, so no help from me.

If BS is a new installation on your machine, you may have a bad copy. I've seen many users request links for earlier versions of BS, as newer versions seem to cause trouble. Did BS previously work on your machine? What is your OS?

I looked through pages of posts while trying to find reference to your error message. Alas, your problem seems unique. When does the message pop up (starting BS, or when you attempt download)?

Add a little more info, repost on the BS thrread, and I'm sure someone will get back to you.

Good luck.

paulie28 October 13th, 2008 01:39 PM

Thanks for the response.

Yeah I will write again on BS related pages rather than here.

Likewise I have ploughed through many threads and not found the same problem :(.

But anyways I am using Vista. It has never worked on my current laptop, but it did on my old pc with XP.

cheers :rolleyes:

muppitymoo December 9th, 2008 11:46 AM

hello im new 2 but i do have a question!

why is it when i download a file it can be very quick then the next moment it slows down to a virtual halt?

Lord of the Rings December 9th, 2008 01:08 PM

Which version of BearShare are you using?

muppitymoo December 9th, 2008 01:22 PM

hmmm..bearshare!! looks like im on the wrong board. i had limewire basic but upgraded it to pro today. the basic was fine but since i've installed the pro it seems to have ground to a halt. i've checked my norton security center and allowed limewire.
I also looked at the connections. several ultra peers but very little band width and high percentage of dropped files.
example of their bandwidth looks like this!


dropped 56%

why is this happening?

Check the last two paragraphs of this post in this link :) Your Problem might be an issue with wireless connection perhaps (wireless devices, depending on model have inconsistent/unreliable bandwidth which may drop when under pressure), too many incomplete files which can saturate the connection. It might also be ISP related with them using special p2p anti-gnutella bandwidth shapers. O.o

muppitymoo December 10th, 2008 01:52 PM

i followed the instructions posted on another thread regarding setting up limewire and how to speed things up. it seems to work a lot better now.
Also i think it has a lot to do with my isp because i've noticed that when it is early evening in the Uk and lots of people are on the net it slows down. When they go to bed here and it becomes early evening in the US as more people come online over there it seems to speed right up which makes me come to the conclusion that it must be due to my isp becoming very busy as it is BT who supply my service.
I will monitor the situation over the next few weeks and see what happens!
thanks for all your help in trying to resolve this issue for me :idea:

Kev Christie.

Lord of the Rings December 11th, 2008 12:29 AM

And there are 'many' ISP's in UK who shape p2p bandwidth during peak hours. :(

samnbrone2004 December 11th, 2008 08:29 AM

Well, I can't find my posting, so hopefully, someone will see this and come up with an answer?
I use windows xp pro, IE 6.0 and have plenty of memory and ram, yet whenever I download programs, all goes well, until I go to burn. Then my burn 'burns' at 97% and each time it does, I get a read failure. However when it burns at 98% all is good.
Can anyone explain why it mostly burns at 97% and I am wasting disk after disk?
Thanks to anyone,

Lord of the Rings December 11th, 2008 09:11 AM

Try burning at 'minimum' speed the disk allows (eg: instead of 50 speed, choose 16 or 20 speed). Also use decent brand CD-R's, not those made in Taiwan or China. The slower speed CD-R disks are also 'more reliable' than the high speed ones & likewise burn those at minimum speed (eg: 16 speed disk, burn at 4 speed). Sure burning fast is convenient for data back up, but for multimedia such as video or audio, slowest is always best. :)
Give your burner a clean too. They do get dirty I assure you. ;) I use regular CD player cleaner disks to clean the laser heads. :)

Another option is to convert your audio files to WAV or AIF first, then burn them as an audio CD. :) But it also depends on how your burner program works.

samnbrone2004 December 11th, 2008 09:25 AM

unable to comply with lower speed
Here is a copy of my 'nero' does not give me an option to select d/l speeds. Does it automatically. Should I be using another burner?

Oops...tried to pasted but don't have the option here ;(

Any other suggestions? It begins to burn properly, but at 97% it always gives me a read failure after about the 3rd item is burned onto the disk.

I'm using the Memorex 80 min 700mb disks.

Thanks for your help.


Lord of the Rings December 11th, 2008 10:32 AM

I have not used Nero for perhaps 3 years, but from memory there 'is' an option to change speed. I just cannot remember how to access it though. Somewhere in settings, it might be one of the sub-programs of Nero that the main speed setting is. Check settings under the Recorder menu (if it still has one.) ... (I am generally a mac user btw.) :)

samnbrone2004 December 11th, 2008 11:12 AM

The only read speed is 48x but there is an option on 'spin down time', anywhere from infinite to 1 sec, but I don't know if that is of any help?

Outside of that, I have no clue.

Thanks again,


aunti2egl January 14th, 2009 07:57 AM

I'm new as well, sorta...well to the forums. Be gentle please. LOL I've got a problem but I am still learning where to post...toodles.

samnbrone2004 January 14th, 2009 02:01 PM

hi, found the problem, and it is now solved, and all is good.
Now, all I need is for someone to outline the steps in downloading a movie from to use the bittorrent, and how to actually d/l a movie.

I've d/l'd a bittorrent, then tried to d/l a movie, and got nothing. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, but haven't a clue.

thanks for any help.

samnbrone2004 January 14th, 2009 02:03 PM

Thanks, have figured out the problem and it works now. However, there is still the problem that every search brings up porn not only as the first thing 'found', but intermixed in the rest of the search items too.
I've also been told by others, that LimeWire is full of nasty virus's.

Any thoughts? I've been trying to d/l from torrent, but can't get it to work for me. I d/l a bit torrent, then try to d/l a movie, and nothing seems to work.
Any thoughts?

Morpheus5x January 14th, 2009 02:38 PM

Ever notice so many Limewire users having problems ?
Many complaining not getting search results lately .
Then there are those who suddenly cannot find their files.
Just look thru the LW threads , you'll see .

Blackhorse 70V January 14th, 2009 04:02 PM


You are confusing Limewire, the software program, with the Gnutella network, that LW uses to search for your movies. Gnutella is full of nasties, so using another program will not get rid of that problem. If you use Bitzi you can avoid much of the grabage.

To play movies you probably need to update your CODECs. More info here:

Since LW does not comply with all of the standards for torrent handling, many sites ban or restrict dls via LW. You would do much better using a dedicated torrent client such as Azureus or uTorrent. More info here: Beginners Guide

mod: I just noticed that this is the BS forum, so perhaps these last few posts should be moved. sorry

Blackhorse 70V January 14th, 2009 04:38 PM

You are commenting about Limewire on the BearShare forum.
We are altrady reading the threads.
