    Go to the more options menu and u will notice when u have first installed kazaa it will default to only finding 4 sources for one file change it to 50 dls will be faster and if u can connect the source that say 00kb watch how fast those downloads go!!!

    sorry if this has already been said

    You mean the max sources for a download? You know it uses memory, that's why you shouldn't put it too high.

    Is the default really 4? That's lame. Isn't the KMD default (and maximum) 8? If that's true then yeah, everyone should increase it. I set mine to 30, though I do have a decent amount of of RAM (768). However I don't think I've ever hit 30 sources before, though I have come close.

    20 should be a nice enough number I think, can't see more than that makes too much of a difference.

    The default shouldn't be 4? I thought it was 16 or something around that by default?

    It must be 4 i had never changed it ever upgraded to build 3 and was wondering why I could only get 4 sources so I went and changed it

    Maximum nr. of sources I ever hit was 17 (for a pop movie)
    Changing default to a nr larger then 8 is not really much of a use
    since you need only a couple of good sources (depending on dwnldcapacity).
    When e.g. I connect to one who uploads at 0.2 kb per sec I break that connection off
    and reconnect after +/- 30 secs.
