Re: got bad info?

I am in the same boat w/ Dave Matthews Band 2002-04-19 Air Canada Centre - Toronto, ON (NTSC).
I get "Got bad file info."

I tried downloading it a few different times too. I am using bit tornado....maybe thats whats wrong. This is the first I have experienced this.

Re: got bad info?

It seems that some people have having problems and others aren't. Can you try to:

- delete the torrent file from your bt application
- do a Force Refresh (shift + Refresh) of the page (or even flush the cache)
- download the torrent file again

I did an upgrade on the site this morning (from vB 3.0.7 to 3.0.12) and some of the headers in the pages changed. I changed them back for the showthread page and I'm hoping that that may fix this problem. However, with attachments, if you have tried to download it before, if you don't flush your cache (or do a force refresh, not a regular refresh) then the same problem will occur again with the attachment.

Also, anyone who posts after this, can you please let me know what browser and OS you are on, please? I'm not having this problem with either of my computers, so I may need to try it out on someone else's who has the same OS as the one having problems. Thanks.

Re: got bad info?

Heres what I have tried:
I am using IE on XP Pro, and my client is Bit Tornado.

I have downloaded the torrent I mentioned earlier about 5 times. I have cleared the cache out, cleared all temp files, rebooted. The torrent: Dave Matthews Band 2002-04-19 Air Canada Centre - Toronto, ON (NTSC) still will not work for me. All others are ok(I am seeding now too). I have a suspicion in my case, its Bit Tornado(even though this has never happened on any site). I think I may try to DL it using another client later this week. Maybe it would help if those of us having probs lists their clients too. Thanks for looking into though!

Re: got bad info?

I tried the suggestion but got the same old "got bad file info". Interestingly enough I was downloading two torrents earlier and they continue to download w/ no problems. Everytime I tried to download something else starting at about 5:30 PST it gave me the "got bad file info." I'm on windows xp, internet explorer and I use the Bittornado 0.2.0

Re: got bad info?

Well, so far we have both of you on XP, both using IE, and both using Bit Tornado. I do not think it is a client thing. I think it has to do with this upgrade I did today. I do have access to a PC running XP, but it's in my kid's room so I can't get on it right now. I'll have to wait until he's in school tomorrow.

Do either of you have another browser on your PC? (I highly recomment firefox ) If you do have another browser available, I'd be interested to know if this problem still occurs when you aren't using IE.

Re: got bad info?

Since yesterday, I keep getting "Failed: Invalid Torrent File" message when trying to dl any torrent from this site.
Just got a new D-Link router & verizon fios, (fast!) but have forwarded correct ports as to not be firewalled. Also, I am having no problems at other sites with any dls. Thanks in advance for any help!

Re: got bad info?

Lynne I had the same problem yesterday afternoon. XP, using firefox. Cleared the cache. Only way I am able to download right now is instead of downloading the torrent file, I double click on it and it gives the option to open using (select program). I am on an 8GB dvd right now, scared of power going out that I might lose what I've already d/l'ded.
