Torrents wont start downloading

I recently downloaded uTorrent and so I am still trying to figure it all out but I seem to be having trouble downloading from Pirate Bay. I normally use BitComet and have no problem using it except for some minor things. What I like to know is why I can download torrents from other sites but when I try to download them from Pirate Bay it never seems tio start the download or find any peers or seeders even though there are hundreds if not thousands.

Any tracker in a torrent with "thepiratebay.org" in the address won't work. They shut them down (thepiratebay did).

I still have no idea what a Tracker is or what you are talking about here' date=' can you please dumb it down for me?[/quote']

Press F1 on your keyboard ... type t r a c k e r into the box then press [Return]

What have I done wrong? Nothing will download. Help please :(

Connect to the Internet first.

Well, thank you for that clever response. ;) I don't know what happened but suddenly everything is working as normal. As nothing was touched or changed from my side, I can only assume that it was a glitch in the program that has now been fixed. :)

Well, thank you for that clever response.

It was the ONLY answer possible based on the information that you provided.

Had you given the client yersion and build you would have got a better idea!

Would you ring up a doctor and expect a full diagnosis based on "I don't feel well"

There are pinned/stickied threads in every forum section specifically for the most common questions, how to ask the right question and what information to provide. Reading them first would probably answer your question WITHOUT you having to wait for a reply.
