Thread: Download a torrent file, get the flac files then....**nevermind...user error**

heineken515 - 11/1/2009 at 02:10 AM

After getting a download from etree in flac, then using Trader's Little Helper to decode, I am getting:

"file is truncated or otherwise corrupt"

on several files....what can be done?

Download the whole thing again?

Edit: update....user error...my hard drive was getting full, deleted a whole bunch of stuff, reran Traders to decode and voila...no errors....not sure if it was the space or just that I needed to decode again, anyhow....no errors.

Thanks for the suggestions.

sounds like the files may be corrupt.

first, I would check your torrent client to make sure that the download was complete. If not, re-open the window and complete the d/l

if it was complete, I would either-
delete what you have and d/l torrent again

or

put a comment on the torrent file to see if anyone else had a problem

this, make sure you're 100% done

What show? can you post a link?

The torrent program I downloaded from bt.etree allows me to re-download the individual tracks that are corrupted.

I've got one better. I just downloaded a show on Torrent, tried to extract it, and found out it was compressed with a program I'd never heard of. Program can only be downloaded, for 29.99, but I decided if they were that desperate for my credit card info, then I just couldn't trust what was in the download.

Even kept the damn torrent going overnight so I'd keep my 9+ ratio.
What a waste of electricity.
