Magnet Links Problem

Recommended Posts

I've been using utorrent for about a month or two and it's been great up until today, when I downloaded a new software update. I tried using a magnet link from thepiratebay and when I clicked it this is what came up : http://imgur.com/RUxANh3.

It tells me that the size is 0 bytes... It's actually 1.1GB. When uTorrent launched it originally showed this : http://imgur.com/Xf3D2Ln.

I left it sitting for a few minutes and it starting doing something, but still no seeds or anything at all. The state it's in while I post this : http://imgur.com/acoQtef

I'm relatively new to this, is it something I'm doing wrong or something else? This is the first time it's ever happened to me.

ok, so it doesn't have the actual torrent contents yet.

DHT needs to be working, and if the torrent is private flagged, the magnet outright won't work.

My DHT is enabled and the torrent is #1 on thepiratebay right now, I don't think it's private. Could it be something with Google Chrome?

I'm now picking up seeds and peers, and I can download stuff. The only thing is that it's extremely slow compared to what I was getting before. I'm only getting around 40-150 kb/s. It's more of just a problem of extremely slow downloads, and that I still can't use magnet links.

I've been able to use magnet links in the past (I think even in the past month or two) but recently I tried on uTorrent 3.3.1 build 30017 32-bit and am experiencing problems.

I am being told this when I click 'Launch Application' upon clicking a magnet link:

"The torrent you are trying to add is already in the list of torrents. Do you want to load the trackers from it?"

The problem here is that... no, the torrent I'm adding is NOT already in the list. I don't see it at all. My list only has other stuff, a small number of things which does not include the magnet which I'm clicking.

I'm thinking maybe it had some echo of me trying it before, but it's invisible and not showing up properly. How do I fix this? I want it to appear. Can I whipe out the echo from the list so that I can properly run this magnet?

It's not a 1-issue thing, I'm getting the same error from other magnets as well.

The site I'm on is saying "Problems with magnets links are fixed by upgrading your torrent client!" but I think 3.3.1 is the latest version?
