I have the upload page filled out...no errors there...when I attach the Torrent

Upload Torrent
Valid file extensions: Please only attach a single torrent file to this post. If you wish to attach images, do so in a separate post. Thank you.

I get:
Upload Errors
Upload of file failed. If this is a torrent upload failure, see list of common causes on the Upload Page.

OK, so when you click attach file, it prompts you to navigate to the folder where you've saved the torrent file that you created with uTorrent, and you selected that one file?

2012-07-30, 05:12 PM
Right...the file name is


It is located in the folder with the FLAC's, Fingerprint and Text File

When creating your torrent file, please set the Private flag to disable DHT.

The above located in uTorrent?

Try it without the underscores?

Try creating a torrent with TLH (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IcRtyhXmAFw) and drop the under scores when naming your torrent file.

Ok...so I leave TLH up and running now all the time instead of uTorrent?

No...I add the file made in TLH in uTorrrent...I see now

Now what?

You must download your personalized torrent before you may begin seeding.

2012-07-30, 07:47 PM
Now you download the .torrent file in the thread and use it to open your torrent client. Point your torrent client to the location of your files. It will then check to make sure they are the same and start seeding when you get a leacher.

2012-07-31, 04:05 PM
OK first Seeding went down hard...5hrs of my life I'd like to have back...but hope that everyone enjoys the show....

Second Seeding Problem, and it has to do with step 10 in the Seeding Guide:

10. Begin seeding.
Download the .torrent file from the thread - it gets personalized upon download. Then open the .torrent file with your BitTorrent client of choice. After it checks the files, your client will register itself as a seed with the tracker. If you client supports "super-seed" mode, you may want to enable that. Though it's not required, this mode will help you distribute the torrent faster by lowering the amount of redundant uploads. If you don't use it, plan on the upload taking about 25% longer.

Currently after pointing uTorrent to the files on MY disc the Personalized Torrent File hangs at 99.99% and never goes to upload. I've made Two other Torrent files and while they will never show up on TTD they do NOT hang up...the same files...

What is going on with the personalized TTD Torrent file? Why is it never completing the "download" of the files on my hard drive when other Torrents not downloaded from TTD do complete

did you change anything at all after making your torrent file like edit the text file or rename anything (removing underscroes) perhaps?

2012-07-31, 04:19 PM
yeah, $10 says the text or ffp file was changed after the .torrent file was generated.

need to:
1) re-gen the .torrent file, and do not open any of the files or change their names afterward.
2) re-upload the torrent, from scratch.
3) go to the old torrne thread and hit the report button (red triangle, top right of post) and ask the mods to remove that old torrent.
