Thread: Insanely Slow Downloads?

    I was trying to download a clip or two by Joss Stone to see if I liked the album enough to buy, but for some reason the files will only download at insanely slow speeds (< 0.1 Kb/sec). Everything else downloads quickly (> 100 Kb/sec) except these mp3s. Other audios files are also fine, it just seems to be something about these particular mp3s. When the files come up under search it might show 40+ users with an estimated download time of a few seconds, yet it&#39;s actuallly very, very slow. I don&#39;t understand why only these particular files are so slow. Does anyone have an idea?

    (I&#39;ve tried this on two different computers and connections, DSL vs cable, with the same results.)

    Thanks for any help&#33;
