    ok...downloading some movies, apps, and games....which are 700MB mostly....they go to like 95%+ and then just stop downloading....they download SOME time but its like it pauses after that....and the speed goes slower...

    i had a download going at steady 100kb/s+ and when it hit 98.35% it stopped and was like that for like 3-4 days.... the file DID have plenty of sources though...

    any ideas? thx

    btw....any way to make shareaza use less resources?

    On BT? Sometimes it's just because no one has the last couple pieces that you need so you have to get. and sometimes shareaza does that on downloads, not sure why.

    I think the reason for this is that the closer you get to the end the less sources have the packets that you require to complete. So at the start you and others are downloading any old packets, but the more you download of a file the harder it is to find the packets you need.
