    maybe most people do it or know about it
    when u search for a popular file and u get alot of sources and u start download and it only downloads from 2 slow users simply click pause and then resume until it starts downloading from fast users or from many users believe me it works
    i downloaded a file and it downloaded from 2 people at 5 kb then i paused it and resumed and it downloaded from 15 users at 50 kb which is my top speed !!!!
    but when u pause and resume give it a little time if it downloads slow then pause again
    these will only work if the file has many sources cause rare files will usually download slow no matter what
    i hope this helps plz post if it helps or not ))))
    (im using the latest kazaa lite build)

    very new to this - (have used winmx for a while) - but have been wondering if it's poss to corrupt the file your getting just by pausing, as it seems that files can be corrupted by shutting down/rebooting, even when paused. ??

    very true pol. You can corrupt a file by rebooting or if KaZaA crashes on you, i found this out the hard way. anyways to answer your question no, you cannot do any harm whatsoever to a file if you pause it... that's what its for

    That&#39;s too fast even for a raid array inside a local computer.

    Most hard drives can only read at speeds of 60 MB/sec or less (60 MB/sec ~= 60,000 KB/sec) -- and if they&#39;re on the same IDE controller, each 2 are limited to ~80-90 MB/sec.

    Scsi-3 only goes up to around 320 MB/sec as well -- and that&#39;s THEORETICAL max, not actual max.

    I&#39;d say it&#39;s a doctored picture...
