md5 problem?...or not?...

hi..I finished downloading a dvd entitled:"Buckethead 2005-10-21 The Social - Orlando, FL - Merry Christmas From TeamBTP (NTSC) DVD9"

I posted this in the download section as well, because I don't know if there is a problem...

As I was watching the show, I observed an abnormally between the image and sound.they didn't match for a few seconds.no slow or fast movement, but only mismatch(if this is the word) of sound-picture.when the camera changed, it was all ok.


Then I pefrormed an .md5 verification, and it said that all the .vob files(except from the first and the last)were mismatch.

what can I do about this?

as I said, I put this in the download section too, so if there is a "problem" with the file, the person who uploaded it, may inform me that all is ok.

if it's not, what can I do? I use bitcomet, and it shows 100% and it's in "seed" mode, so I guess it's all ok from the programm..


p.s.sorry for the english......greek here

Re: md5 problem?...or not?...

well, if your client says 100% then what you have certainly matches what the seeder posted... but if the md5 doesn't check, then the set was seeded either with an incorrect .md5 file or a couple incorrect .vob files (as you suspect). the seeder is the one who can answer this question best

where is the announce thread for that dvd?

Re: md5 problem?...or not?...

you mean the page?...

http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/...ad.php?t=16024


that's it.I did something else though.I deleted the .md5 file and when I started downloading again, it said to me that NONE of the .vob files was completed.they all were around 99.7-99.8%.so I downloaded them from there.
now that I did the check again, it fails....again....

yeah, don't bother deleting and re-downloading, if your client shows 100% all your files are identical to the original seeder's.

we just need somebody else to test the md5 which was included on a different computer

Depending on the size of the torrent. You will be able to see the size of it in the first page. Most audio never goes over a gig (usually sits around 700 or 800 mb), most vids get around 3-4.


20 gigs is a relatively small drive though, torrents or not.

Re: How much space do you need on a hard drive....

so if they are 3-4 gigs, i'll need 3-4 gigs extra after i've d/l'd them to burn...is that correct? nero says there isn't sufficient space on my hd to burn them, because it has to be burned to my HD, then onto disk...is there a way it can go straight to disk??

no, you shouldnt need the extra space to burn. How are you trying to burn them?

It might need a lil room to build a cache, but it shouldnt be building an image to burn from if its coming straight off the HD.

Try to run a disk cleanup (start > programs > acessories > system tools > Disk cleanup).

After thats done run the Defrag program (Start > programs > acessories > system tools > disk defragment)

Run those two programs, then restard ur computer.

I think he's probably got his DVD burning program set up to create an image before he burns, which is a terrible thing for those with small hard drives (I'm in the same boat).

My advice to him is to make certain Nero is set up to burn the DVD "on the fly", or whatever the option is to not create an image before burning (I never had Nero when I was a Windows user, so I don't know where to tell him to look for this setting). I never have enough room for a DVD image to be created on either one of my partitions, yet I've had no problems trying to burn DVDs so far.

I didnt know on the fly meant not creating an image before burning, I just thought it meant it was jusr more precise.


Hatfield, unless your planning on getting a new PC soon, I would plump down 40 bucks and get a second 20 gig drive (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148051)

Its nice to have a seperate drive just for your torrents. It wont screw with your OS drive or slow down the read time.

(Also do note that for example $60-75 already gets you a perfectly fine 80-160GB drive instead.)

Ditto. This stuff is so cheap these days that it doesn't make much sense to not buy a larger hard drive.

Re: How much space do you need on a hard drive....

ok, so try "on the fly" in nero to prevent an image being created before burning or get a new hd for torrents...thanks for the help everyone. I'll give it a shot.

yes, you can definitly install a second drive using the slave plug on your IDE cable, i'm sure theres space for it in there, if not then get an external, thats even more easy....
