BT should pop up.. you just decide where to save it.

Damn BT noobs =P You should use bittornado.. much faster client. And uh... you can't get individual songs.. usually you'll get the whole album for just one song. But then again, it's fast. All my downloads go 200kbps+

ok, since your new to bittorent ill try to help you out a bit.

before you start anything youll need to have some programs, they are pretty necessary for burning, and getting the torrents to work.

First off, you'll want to download WinRAR. Winrar is just like winzip, but it extracts different filetypes, not really sure, but it can't extract .torrent files.
to find winrar go here: http://www.download.com/WinRAR/3000-2250-10007677.html?part=dl-winrar&subj=dl&tag=button


Ok, after you have winrar, you'll want to download a different bittorrent client. the regular bittorrent isnt that great, i dont find it goes as fast, and it has pop ups sometimes. I use a client called 'Azureus'. Azureus is one of the many clients there are, for azureus (which i reccomend downloading) is found here: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/azureus/Azureus_2.1.0.4_source.zip?download

If you've downloaded a game, occassionally you won't be able to burn it using Nero, so you'll need a program called CloneCD. Clonecd is used to burning image files, takes up almost no room, so this is optional if your burning games or not. you can find clonecd here: http://www.slysoft.com/en/download.html make sure you click on Clond CD 2.4.5.4

Alright, so you've have all the stuff you need, now you'll needs torrents. there are plenty of torrent databases on the internet, some large ones are: www.suprnova.org, digital-update.com, and lokitorrent.com. digital-update might be closing.
-To use a torrent:
-download the torrent from the website.
-open up azureus, or whatever BT client you are using.
-save the file to a path, it will automatically ask you. i made a special folde rjust for torrents because i can clog up your desktop.
-let it download.
downloading a file is a bit more complicated than using kazaa. youll notice a tracker, the tracker is where the torrent is being hosted (i think). it tracks all the people downloading it. you want to make sure the tracker is Ok, if its offline you wont be able to downloading. also make sure there are people seeding, the more people seeding the faster your download will go. when you finish downloaing, youll automatically start sharing, once you share youll want to wait to get your share ratio to 1. once it's at 1, you can remove it from sharing. you dont have to do this, but if you downloading, then remove it, youll be what they call a 'leecher'.
sounds like your downloading music, so if you have any questions just IM me about anything else.

You should probably download the mac client then

Did I get a negative rep point for saying "damn bt noob"? Unnecessary censorship cough.
Get with the times, we're eliminating the rep system, and fastecho is stuck with -28
