Download problem/have Charter
« on: June 02, 2005, 03:41:21 pm »
I'm having the same downloading problems as most with the file not finding sources and then turning red.  In my situation, I have a cable modem and use Charter ISP (which looks like a bad thing now).  In the past I've never had problems downloading music (which is all I look to download), but now my problems have surfaced.  I'm not sure if it's because I use Charter or fake files.  As early as last night, I was able to download one song out of 10 I searched for.  The one download worked just as well as all of my past downloads, but other the other songs just turned read after a few seconds.  Since I was able to download one song, could it be that I just got around Charter's attempts to prevent downloads that for a slight moment or could it be more of a fake file situation?  I'm not the most computer literate person so I'd really like someone's opinion on what the possible problem is.  I'm hoping it's just fake files because I don't feel like dealing with getting a new ISP.  Also, I've noticed no problems with uploads, but I haven't seen any attempts.

Thanks for this forum and your time.

the best way to find out if its fake files or a problem getting files is to go in to a chat room and get something, if you go in to the chat room then someone there should be able to help you test out any download problems you may be having :-D

If you expand the group you are downloading in the Transfers window, it's easier to see why the transfers turn red.
There are many types of fakes, but if the transfer stays yellow for a bit, then turns red, it's probably those where you get "Timed out (waiting for network reply..."
the others where you get "Connection Refused" and "File Mismatch" use to stay yellow all the time, because every time a new source is added, WinMX retries the other sources.
The problem doesn't have to be fake files, it could be your settings or ISP like said, but when you expand the group with the file you're downloading, it's much easier to see why the download fails :D
