You should be able to see the forum for technical assistance and there's thread there "why can't I view the forums". (there's a glitch in the system sometimes)
Post there if you don't get a reply to this and they'll fix it pretty quick ;D

  ??? I haven't downloaded any torrents in about a year. After re-doing my hard drive I re-installed BitTorrent, but I can't get it to work. It doesn't want to download any torrents. Is there something I missed during installation of BitTorrent? Or is it something to do with some settings on my computer? Is it something to do with settings in Preferences in BitTorrent?  ??? I also tried uTorrent, and the same thing is happening.

I'd also suggest trying to download a torrent from another site somewhere.
That should confirm if your ISP is blocking them.
Do you mean torrents (the small files) or the actual files themselves?
You may also have a problem with your firewall blocking them (as you have altered things on your PC).
I'd suggest reposting  this in the Tech forum as some may skip this particular "sticky" which is an instructional guide which not everyone will read.
There's lots of reasons why this could be happening but I use Azureus Vuze so I'm not familiar with the other clients.

Hello! I've downloaded a torrent and used uTorrent. Its 100% done now.
I'm wondering if I can somehow put it on my iPod?
Or is it only for playing on your computer?

what did you download ?

if music/audio: yes .. I think right away .. except for flac that has to be encoded to mp3 or aac
if video: yes .. but if it was no specia ipod package you have to convert it first to fit your ipods resolution and format

Not having an iPod I may be wrong but you will probably have downloaded an ordinary video or audio file. As long as your iPod plays that type of file, you shouldn't have a problem. (but don't ask how to transfer it, I've no idea)  ;D
As Dolbyman says, iPods don't play flac files so use a free conversion progam (Google for one) to change the format.

I have to convert lots of the video to fit on my Archos player as it will only play up to a certain resolution (think it's 720, not sure) so anything in 1080 etc won't play inless I change the resolution.
Again, plenty of free stuff out there to do that (probably Super).
Very little here that's computer only (a few CD Roms and ISOs maybe).

Hey there! I am kind of new to downloading torrents, so I was wondering if someone can answer a question that I was wondering about.

I downloaded a couple of files already, they finished downloading and now they say that they are "seeding". It's been a while since I downloaded them and they still day seeding. Is it suppose to stay like that or is there another step that I have to do??

Seeding means you have them, and are making them available to others who may want them.

It's polite to seed for a while, unless no one is downloading. You can always reseed in the future if someone asks for seeds for a particular file. The more seeders, the quicker the file is obtained.
