According to the mp3 the problem is that the seed may play the file while you are downloading it. This causes the hash to change and therefore your file to be detected as corrupt (ending hash != hash at the start of the download).

For the other files I cannot really tell you what the problem is. there may be a modified client in the network causing corrupt files....

It seems, that iTunes changes MP3-files while playing them. I dont know wether other software does it too. I use Winamp and have no problems.

Changed files have new hashes ..... that's the problem.

it's not mp3 files but the fact is interessant...

the files are .rar and some video , so do you think it's possible that when we use it on our pc it can change the files and then make a corrupt??

do you think it's possible that the files are corrupted after have been renamed?


one other thing:

On other p2p soft the different part of the file are checked when we download it, if one of it are corrupt the soft dl it again.
on sn the verification it's made at the end of the dl of the entire files(it's seems i'm not really an expert  ;D) , isn't it possible to make the verification for all the part separatly?

up  ;D


the problem still continue this time...



i have some download wich restart for the 4 time.....

I really think that a "fragmentation" and a verification of the part when it have been download can be a good thing..

I have no corrupted downloads since I am using SN. Please use the official release of SN (or the beta 0.8.7.6) ! It is the best one.

A sound piece of advice : limit your number of connection ! 10 maxi. I am using 6.

I live in France, 8 of my friends are using StealthNet and live also in France, and we have really never corrupted downloads (or 1-2 like Doc Honke). We are all using official SN releases with 6-8 or 7-9 connections

Try the new 0.8.7.6 finale, it is out.
