Uploading

When I try to upload my torrent, the file doesn't appear in the box next to the browse button. Why? Do I need to upload each file individually? Thanks

Re: Uploading

You need to find the torrent hash file that was created to hook up your folder to the tracker. Could you describe what you're doing a bit more?

I filled out the form then clicked manage attachments. When I hit browse I search for the torrent and click on it but it doesn't appear in the box to open. I can load individual tracks but not the whole file at once.

Re: Uploading

Do you have utorrent? or trader's little helper?

In utorrent:

file>>create torrent>>add directory

then choose the folder that contains the files & follow the instructions from there. Make sure that your file folder is clean (no extra stuff that doesn't comply w/ TTD rules) & includes all necessary stuff. Then once the file is saved then you will hunt down the newly created torrent file (not the folder) & add it in the upload box. Fill out all pertinent info & confirm. You will then need to download the torrent & place it in the main directory where the folder is located. Then your torrent client will check your folder & confirm that you have the files & when it gets to 100% you will be considered a seed...

In Trader's Little Helper:

Torrent>>Create Torrent File

& follow the same instructions...

Make sure you use this site's announcement...

Re: Uploading

Are you actually trying to upload the .torrent file or a music file?
