torrents aren't completing correctly

When i download music torrents, most of them say that they complete, but sometimes less than 40% of the files are actually complete. I'm using azureus & torrents not from this site, and when i press "force re-check" the files actually come up as being too large!- about 2mb extra which i can't find in the folders.
please suggest a solution cos this is doing my head in.
thanks

Check with the site where you are getting the torrents from?

Re: torrents aren't completing correctly

I would ask at the site you got them at. Also, post in the torrent thread there and see if anyone else is having the same problem. Also, did you try to run the md5 checksums on the files to see what it says?
