Re: got bad info?

Well, I heard from some other people in threads I posted in that once they cleared the cache (since last night) that everything was fine. I made some changes yesterday evening, so you really need to have cleared your cache (and do a force refresh also just in case) since then to see if it was fixed. I'll get onto my son's XP machine in a few minutes to go try to replicate this.

Re: got bad info?

Can you attach the torrent file here and give me a link to the thread you got it from? That way I can take a look and compare them and see what is going on.

Thanks.

Re: got bad info?

But, I need to see a copy of what the torrent looks like once it's downloaded. Aren't you able to download it and then it causes the errors in the bittorrent client, right? So, I want to see what the torrent looks like once it's downloaded (since something is happening to it during that process, it sounds like).

Re: got bad info?

Well, I am able to download the files on XP doing a right-click Save Target As.

Good news: I can replicate the problem on my kids XP machine.
Bad news: I emailed myself a working torrent from my Mac to this XP machine and it won't work here. So, this is definitely an XP thing with the torrent files. (I can open image attachments and doc attachments perfectly fine. It's only torrents that are giving the problem.)

Let me continue to look into it.

Re: got bad info?

Using 98, with Firefox and BitTorrent 4.0.4 I get:

This is not a valid torrent file. (invalid bencoded value (data after valid prefix))

When trying to use the attached torrent file (I attached it from my PC after downloading).

It is from this thread:

Re: got bad info?

OK, I think I just fixed this problem (at 10:05 PST). So, go back to the thread, do a Force Refresh or clear your cache and try to download the torrent again.

Re: got bad info?

I'm not clear on what you mean by clear your cache. Does that mean delete everything I have?

Re: got bad info?

It may work without you having to clear your cache (it did on my kids machine). But, usually under your browser preferences in a category like Privacy (that's what it's called in Firefox) there is an option to do with your Cache and you can hit a button to clear it.

Re: got bad info?

did the force refresh on IE and it still does not work, and I can't figure out how to clear my cache. Can anybody help me with this either on IE or AOL Explorer, thanks.
