uTorrent 3.0 FAQ

Troubleshooting

  1. Why is my torrent stuck at a certain percent?
  2. Why does pause mode keep downloading or uploading?
  3. Why does it show a download speed of .1-.2 KiB/s when seeding?
  4. Why is there an ETA / Remaining time when seeding?
  5. Why do the up/down buttons not move the torrent?
  6. uTorrent won't open torrent files even though I associated torrents with it.
  1. Why is my torrent stuck at a certain percent?

    See What does availability mean?

  2. Why does pause mode keep downloading or uploading?

    It takes up to a few minutes for the download and upload to reach 0 in paused mode, since uTorrent must send/receive all the queued pieces first.

  3. Why does it show a download speed of .1-.2 KiB/s when seeding?

    uTorrent shows BitTorrent protocol overhead when displaying speeds; this is normal.

  4. Why is there an ETA / Remaining time when seeding?

    uTorrent shows an ETA/Remaining time when seeding based off the ratio set in "Seeding Priority," so you can know about how long it'll take to reach the specified ratio.

  5. Why do the up/down buttons not move the torrent?

    The up/down buttons only change the queue order for torrents that are downloading. They do not actually move the torrents up and down in the list.

  6. uTorrent won't open torrent files even though I associated torrents with it.

    Make sure the "Associate with .torrent files" button is greyed out in the General section of the options. If it is and Firefox gives you errors like "Invalid menu handle" when opening the .torrent or opens another client, click (within Firefox) Tools -> Options -> Applications, remove TORRENT from the list and hit OK. If it is Explorer or other programs giving the error, you may need to right click a .torrent file, Open With -> Browse, look for uTorrent and check "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file." If all else fails, click (within Explorer) Tools -> Folder Options -> File Types, and remove TORRENT from the list. Then try to use the "Associate with .torrent files" button again.
