Okay. I use kazaa lite 2.4.3
quite often, if im downloading a rare, big file, i find the person goes offline. Later that same person (possibly under a new ip) comes back on, but the half-completed file does not resume.
However, if i do a search, and recreate the download, the file starts fine, from that user.
So this is not a case of there being no users available to let me download - this is actually the download .dat file itself seems to be damaged. I don't enjoy having to restart a download thats a few hundred meg from scratch when i was half done!! and im sure nobody else does.
Restarting kazaa, or pausing and resume the download does not help.
It may be coincidence, but when i view the file in KDat, there are no sources next to the file. some of the dat files have sources and some don't. If i try to modify a .dat file with Kdat, which does not have a source i get:
"Access Violation at Address0049f70f in module Kdat.exe. read of address 0000000"
(note: i dont have kazaa running when trying to modify a .dat file)
if i modify one with a source, this is fine.
Even if a file is downloading (or has been downloading), sometimes the source does not appear when looking at it with KDAT (and the above issues sometimes happen)
This is the single most infuriating issue i have with kazaa lite (i assume ordinary kazaa does this too - but i wouldn't touch that with a 10 foot pole). Other than that i'm very happy with kazaa.
Does anyone have a fix, workaround, or at least know why this occurs (or even have experienced the same thing?) I'd be really gratefull to hear from you!
