Any other relevant information that you think may help ....... Try to make your post descriptive, specific, and clear so members can quickly and efficiently help you.

Members need to supply these details >>> System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)


There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.

The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.

Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Default Transfering Previous Limewire Files To New Limewire

I just downloaded the newer version of limewire, but i cannot figure out how to transfer all my files from my old version. I need to delete my older version, but I am afraid that I will lose all my songs in Itunes.

How old is your old version? All the versions I've used have saved files in standard formats. An MP3 is an MP3, and can be played by iTunes or QuickTime Player, whatever version of LimeWire you have.

Krieger, the Macintosh has the simplest, most transparent, and easily managable file structure imaginable. These people just haven't figured out command+f to do a HD search. You can't *lose* anything on a Mac.

u r right about mac being the most simple. download sherlock 2 from then simply use it to search for limewire shared. look at the date next to it and just remember to take the later dated limewire shared folder and select all your files movies etc. and move it to ur new limewire shared folder. i would reccomend taking ur shared folder from the version u want to update and move it to ur desktop. then use sherlock to find limewire uninstaller, uninstall it. then use sherlock and type limewire, select and move all the results from the search and move it to the trash and empty trash. then try the search again and u should find nothing! which is good. the only thing left of limewire will be the shared folder of all ur files. then simply download limewire 2.5.5 which is the newest fastest most reliable, u can always resume a download etc.!! then when u download it restart mac then startup limewire and set it up to install shared/downloaded files on ur (hard drive/system folder/preferences /shared) (which by the way will be ur default location). Your final to open up macintosh HD/system folder/preferences/shared folder which will be empty and open ur old shared folder with ur files in it, select them all or whichever ones u want to share and move it into the new shared folder(system folder/preferences/shared). by the way they wont appear at first, it takes a while for them to copy to the new folder depending on how many files u have. then u can just get rid of ur old shared folder once you determined that all of ur files have been transfered. By if u startup limewire and it say "error! no port for incoming transfers cant connect" just go to extensions manager and turn on web and file sharing extensions and control panels. then restart and ur done. it may seem long but i may have said things twice, its quite easy. lemme know how things went, and good luck.
