Re: help seeding???

What do you mean you can't get the fingerprint or md5 to pass properly? You make those files using Traders Little Helper (well, that's what a lot of people use). And then you open the file up in notepad and copy/paste it into the spot in the Upload page. Or, do you mean you have the fingerprint/md5s and you can't get the files you have to pass the fingerprint/md5 check?

Re: help seeding???

Are you trying to drag and drop the file into the box? That won't work. You need to open the file up in a text editor (like notepad) and then copy/paste the checksums into that box.

Re: help seeding???

got the checksums pasted. that made sense.
the only torrent file i can get to upload, however, is my text file.
thank you soo much for your patience, U2Lynne.
you always seem to get me on track in the forum.

Re: help seeding???

is there a way for me to upload the entire folder???
i read that i should drag and drop the folder into a new folder, but that doesn't work, either...
i'm either very confused or partially braindead.

Re: help seeding???

Asumming you used one of the tools at http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/...nt#faq_bttools to create your torrent....that's the file you want to attach and upload.

You also have to name the right announce URL in the tools above -- http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/...r/announce.php -- Are you getting an error when you hit the upload button?

Re: help seeding???

You only upload the torrent file itself, not the folder.

Re: help seeding???

You don't upload the songs. You put all four songs in a folder. Then you create a torrent file from that folder. Here's how to do that using Azureus: http://www.zeropaid.com/news/6367/Cr...s+with+Azureus

The announce url for this site is: http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/...r/announce.php

Then when you create it, tell it to put it somewhere you remember - just like saving a file. Put it on your desktop.

If you just copied and pasted what Lynne wrote, you don't have the entire thing, you have a few periods running around in there like what I have above.

The actual announcement is:

Re: help seeding???

What might have happened is you added a space before or after the announce url when you copy/pasted. Try to do it again only make sure you don't have a space before or after it.
