Getting "bad bencoded data" message

Hello all.....was downloading a Steve Miller dvd from the site. Now, I just had to reboot my computer, my download is at 61.4%, and now I cannot connect to anyone. Every time I open the torrent file, it says "bad data from tracker-bad bencoded data". Anyone ever had this issue before, and if so, anything I can do to undo it? Thanks for your help.

WELL......was going to delete the message, but don't see that option.....the "error" finally went away and I started connecting to peers.

Re: Getting "bad bencoded data" message

Are you talking about this one: I see you connected. Sometimes you just need to wait a few minutes until you start transferring data.
