View Full Version : Kazaa question, re: multiple sources
05-12-03, 08:45 PM
Hi! When I search for a file, I'll often find that multiple uses have it, which should speed up my transfer time. However, when begin downloading it, the number of users from whom I am downloading is always significantly less than the number that shows up during the search. Searching will tell me 12 people have the file, but I'll end up DLing it from 2 or 3. What causes this (I'm guessing I'm in queue with the other users?) and how can I fix it to increase the speed of my downloads?

All I can offer is that you should use the later versions of Kazaa Lite with the SpeedUp option and make use of it. It seems to work pretty well.

One thing you can do, is if you have the option to "Search More" do that. More versions of the song will come up, adding to the list of people who you can download from.

Check out a utility called ShareMonkey, it's pretty good at finding new users that have the file you're trying to download.
