    Hi Guys...

    I downloaded a rar file using a torrent. However, as soon as the last 256 KB are left, the health becomes 00%. The total file size is 654 MB and only due to the last remaining 256 KB, the file is not opening.

    Is there any way to convert the .bt! file to rar file? Manual renaming didn't work... :cry:

    Please help...

    It happens so many times. Being precise....most of the indians using torrents dont really want to share stuffs. It is hard to make people understand how important is it to share to make the community grow. I have been stuck at 90 % so many times before while downloading some indian classics or some abstract files. I have also waited for more than a month for a movie to be downloaded only because it had 1 seeder coming online and offline at random intervals.

    Is there any way to convert the bc! file to rar file? I opened it using the hex editor and replaced the header to Rar header. Now when I open it, it asks for the next file in the volume.

    What you can do is disable Bitcomet to add .bc extension to the files being downloaded.
    Go to Preferences->Task->Disable "Add .bc extension to files".
    You can then preview your media files as well.

    Why do this? You will always be confused if the file is fully downloaded or a junk. Its good to leave the way it is. If you really want to use the file before complete download then simply remove the .bc! from the end. It will become what you want.

    Try all of the following. If one doesnt work, switch onto the next one:

    1. Click Options > Preferences > Advanced > Connection and change "Maximum Connections per task" & "Connections to keep per task" to 1, then resume the torrent.

    2. Make sure the following is disabled in your router:
    DMZ Mode (where all packets are forwarded a single machine by default)
    Game Mode (very few routers support this function, so you probably won't be able to find this option)

    3. Select the torrent task in BitComet then click the Files section (bottom left in the main window). If it contains any of the following file types, right click them and select Priority > Disabled:
    desktop.ini
    thumbs.db


    Next right click the torrent task and select Manual Hash Check - this will check the data for errors. Then resume your download and hopefully it will finish.

    4. Check in the Trackers if there is any tracker error. If there is one, then post the error code here.

    You did not pay attention. When you ask for help you are atleast supposed to read the posts carefully. I said that remove the .bc! extension from the end. I said nowhere that you rename a file to .rar

    To make it clear.....suppose the name of file you are downloading is game.rar then by default until it is downloaded bitcomet will name it as game.rar.bc! What you need to do is to remove the .bc! from the end.

    You really annoyed me dood. [​IMG]
