Error: ReadFromDisk: hostname not found


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to seed something for my friend and I'm getting this error immediately after he manages to connect to my computer.

The error is "Error: ReadFromDisk: hostname not found" and I'm running 1.8.4.

The disk is a new WD external USB 3 hdd. I already downloaded a few gigabytes via uTorrent and it appears to be seeding other things no problem.

Mavericks with late 2013 MBP.

I'm having a similar problem. I"m on an OS X 10.9.5 system with uTorrent 1..8.6 (36417); the problem was also happening with 1.8.4.  I'm seeding a lot of torrents, and a handful of them absolutely never get to upload at all: this message appears within seconds of any leecher connecting, and all connections to that torrent generate the error.  The rest of the torrents work fine.  I've moved the torrents from a WD USB disk to a Buffalo Thunderbolt disk without changing the problem.
