  1. Hi mudman, it's a while since I've been doing things. Downloaded your suggested software Burn X Free - looks really simple and nice Mac interface. I have however had a problem straight up in that it is not recognising the optical drive in my Mac - have you come across this problem? I've sent a query off to the company so I hope to get some help from there but just thought I'd ask...... Hope you doing OK. cheers Annie
  2. Thanks mudman, that's great. I probably will want to burn it so will hunt up that software suggestion.....Thanks again for all your help.
  3. that's OK shug. I've got mudman's advice to try and nut out (I hope I hear back from him about my queries) and somone at torrentportal has recommended some Mac software that looks (at a glance) to be a good way of tackling this job..... But that's for tomorrow....... Thanks again
  4. Hey again, I used the quote feature and realise that I got some of my ongoing queries mixed up following your quotes - sorry, I know that makes it difficult to read - would you mind reading the whole post...... Hope I have been clear in my queries. Cheers again Annie
  5. Hey All Thanks again for your help. Very much appreciated.. Shug...no from all the research I did, I don't believe it is copyrighted - it is certainly not available commercially as I checked (I actually like to just go to my local media store and buy things in nice neat packages off the shelf - easier and you get neat booklets and stuff too (ain't I a sucker for the marketers!) The songs are all available on You Tube and I know how strict they are in removing any copyright material. Shug, the link you provided to Active ISO Burner indicates that it is for Windows and
  6. You have all been so helpful to a newbie to BTing and as I have not been getting much (read no help from BT client forums), I'm back here again to ask for advice. Having said that about BT, I did write directly to BT (I wrote to the advertising department! as no other email address seemed relevant) because the manuals I was reading bore little resemblance to the Mac interface and I did get a very quick and clear response from BT, clarifying that yes, the manuals were for the Windows client and giving me the heads up that I should go to utorrent - I know someone here (shug?) recommended that t
  7. Hi mudman and shug, thanks so much again for your help. I'm using Bit Torrent. You each recommended other client software - transmission and utorrent respectively. But since my post, I have successfully completed 1 torrent and the other is proceeding albeit slowly (probably because I think not a lot of seeds where I got it from - am now getting hang of searching torrent sites (as well as general googling - it is amazing what people have on their blogs to share) and know to look for lots of seeds. Have to also check my download speed with my ISP.... Thanks again. Hope I won't have to b
  8. Thanks you've all been so helpful..... Unlike the forums on BitTorrent.... Would you mind if I posted my problem with Bit Torrent here and if anyone can advise I would appreciate it.... "Hi I'm very new at this. I have a download running and I am getting the following error message at regular intervals: 4.27.2 2009 - 03 - 31 3:23 ERROR Message Parsing Failed Traceback (most recent call last): File "Bit Torrent/Connection.pvo," line 966 in_data_came_in File "Bit Torrent/Connection.pvo," line 658 in_read_messages File "Bit Torrent/Connection.pvo," line 711 in_got_mes
  9. Hi mudman Wow thanks so much for your post - yes, those were my two tests tonite..... Going to check with ISP tomorrow re what our package is - the tests indicated that our connection speed was lousy and I don't think the download and upload rates are very high are they, particularly since we have Cable? Unfortunately I don't know what you mean re opening the correct port within the router - although finally having found PREFERENCES in BitTorrent (the manuals must be written for Windows) NETWORK it says LOOK FOR AVAILABLE PORT, has 6881 in a box where it looks like you can make chan
  10. Thanks for the welcomes..... Two issues - I am using Bit Torrent and I am so new to it I am having trouble even using their Beginner's Guide - I have tried posting to the forum there but no-one will answer me So maybe someone here might be generous enough to advise re my following query if they are Bit Torrent experts (by the wat I have a Mac - don't know if that makes any difference)? My post was: "Am just leaarning about Bit Torrenting. Am reading the Guides from the start like a good newbie but I'm stuck straight away. I think I have used testmy.net and Beltronica su
  11. I'm new here and not sure in fact what it's all about: lol But I'm learning about BitTorrenting and got directed to Testmy.net and I think I'll have a few questions for my ISP after my first few tests!!! So hi!
