If you have a firewall installed, then can you still use Bittorent succesfully?

Brilliant! Will try and get it working this weekend! Shame I've missed so many concerts already! Hopefully someone will seed them again - can't remember who said they were gonna do it now... :-)

Cheers Richard!

What I'd like to know is how safe is Bit Torrents? The reason I ask is because having used the likes of Kazaa and having a real bad experience with them (corrupt files and viruses, etc), I have been put off this form of file sharing.

Any info, anyone?

Bittorrent is nothing like sharing using Kazaa. Follow Richard's link above for more info, or go to www.sharingthegroove.org and read the "Getting Started" forum.

Can we make this a sticky again? Or, better yet, perhaps some enterprising QZ poster would like to write a brief Torrent FAQ for the site?

Either way, we've been getting a lot of questions lately from users new to torrents. Having a stable place of reference would help.

It's only a start. I am adding some detailed questions and answers about flac and video formats this week. If people can help, please send the question and answer to Queenzone through the "contact" link on the main page.


I do not want any google ads here.

I had trouble converting four songs in Copenhagen to WAV using FlacFrontend (could not initiate file). DBpoweramp was able to convert these four songs no problem. Go Figure.

Thanks. This will be slightly (LOL) better than my cassette conversion to MP3 ...

Yeah, if your find a programme to download called dbPowerAmp (its free) and download the flac codec, you should be able to encode them into mp3.

Go to http://www.dbpoweramp.com/ and look under Codec Central to download the codec.

Hehe, just looking back at previous posts in this topic, I said I would start bittorenting then! But I've only just started (shows how lazy I am!) and I have to say its going pretty well!

Which bittorrent program do you use?

I've Azureus (http://azureus.sourceforge.net/) and I'm quite pleased with it but the only problem is that the JAVA program is slowing down my pc. Any suggestions for other programs?
