I use a Mac (Bits on wheels client). Works fine, until the past few days. Whenever I try to leech a new torrent, I get an error message:

"Error : NSInvalidArgumentException/*** -[NSCFDictionary setObject:forKey:]: attempt to insert nil key"

I've tried several different torrents, re-downloaded torrent file, re-started, re-booted re-everything I could think. Always get this message. (Even tried a different computer)

At the same time, I have several traders den torrents seeding just fine?

Anybody got any idea what I screwing up??

Thanks in advance,

Cheers

Well, in typing my question, I had another idea to try, and it worked! I deleted several of the torrents I was seeding. The error message didn't indicate (to me at least) that this was the problem, but it worked.

C'est la vie

Thanks anyway! :wave:

Just want to add here..... Bits On Wheels is NOT RECOMMENDED as a bittorrent client. In fact, it is banned on many sites. It pounds the tracker and it can mess with your stats (I've seen it happen many times). I'd strongly suggest switching over to Azureus.

I've got a error question as well. Lately I've been getting the following error:

"Aborting the torrent as it could not connect to the tracker while not connected to any peers."

I do not understand why this error would appear, as the most recent torrent that the error appeared on had more than 50 seeders and almost as many leeches.

I am occasionally able to download a torrent, but not consistenly, and the download is much slower than my upload speed (around 60 KB - I don't know if that is fast or not).

I use BitTorrent (I think that is the name). Would changing to Azureus possible make any difference?

Thanks,

Scott
