Sounds like you were trying to download some of the fakes. Before downloading,
right-click each likely candidate and use the Bitzi option. Sooner or later you
will find the real one.

Don't be surprised if the real thing looks like it has only 10 or 20 sources in the
search. Once you start downloading, BearShare automatically finds many more.

yeah thats how it used to be every odd file wouldnt work, but since i got the new bs it is EVERY file for certain films. and what does download is always a different size to the one i tried to get and always low quality cam

I downloaded the programs just as you suggested and they work just fine. I'm downloading some songs even as we speak. I did go back and try to download the same songs on the Pro Ver but they all just sit there in waiting, offline, and in bla bla mode.

What a rip off!

Thanks for the great workaround.

Now, can I rid the PC of Bearshare Pro-crastinate?

Im back with another problem.... I installed BearShare Lite awhile ago now (5.2.1) In the last month it has started to run slow, it takes forever to search anything, then to dl is just as bad. My internet connection is fine, I have adsl and everything else is doing as it should, just not BS.

My questions are -
- am I using the right version of BS Lite?
- Should I use another p2p and just forget bout BS? :( if so, which one? (I hate LW)

Sorry to be a pain. Wish BS hadnt of added that stupid zango **** and I wouldnt be here asking questions that must drive you all crazy.

My personal opinion, if you don't want to use the BS that Aaron mentioned in his post with the BS Starter and you don't like LW, then Phex might be interesting for you.

MidnightAngel October 6th, 2006 08:05 AM

Does Phex have any adware?

Also, can it do what BS does with dl, where you can actually expand the users your dl off and start certain ones off? Hope you get what I mean.....
