Whenever I search for a song, I always get a HUGE list of different files for the song, but when I click any of them to download, they just sit in the downloads section with a "Connecting..." status and don't do anything. Most of the files in the search section under the Location column say "Multiple" with high numbers like 90 or 100 in brackets next to them.

What's with this, and how do I fix it?

I did... It helped a bit, but I still get tonnes of different files with the "Mutiple" thing in brackets, and when I download them, they just sit there and say "Connecting...". Even when I download bigger files with high bitrates.

In one of the first sections of that guide it says in so many words that all results that go close to or above 1000 hits are bogus fake files.

Whenever you get the same song listed with eg.

Don't even bother trying. instead try another searchphrase

Alright, got my own system now. Filtering out wma's, arranging the search results by size, and downloading the files with the biggest # which are close enough to the top to make sense to be real. Seems to work really well.

You should edit your post...talking about copywrited material is against the forum rules

Try posting in another thread...this is about music!

Good Luck :idea:
