    try downloading other files from a differant site, and see if that solves your problem...I have yet to hear of such a program where it downloads the file, just dosen't save it right but I dont work with BT all day

    But seriously, WTF is he asking? when you use BT it Allocates the space before you DL the complete file, so it LOOKS like its there but its just garbled placeholder code. after the DL is complete, then the file will be what it is supposed to be. If its DivX you're having a problem with then make sure you have the DivX 3 codec, the DivX 4 codec, and the DivX 5 codec. As far as the best BT program to use, I personally use the Shadow Experimental Bit Torrent Client, mainly because it minimizes to the System Tray.

    you also have to make sure the download is 100% complete because bit torrent downloads in chunks, it doesn't download from the beginning to end
