If there is only one seeder you are dependent on his speeds. You can pause or delete the download and tweak your uTorrent and then try to connect with the seeder again to see if this changes your issue.

Update to the lasted uTorrent build. There was an issue with a previous build that had improper mapping which conflicted with downloads. The newest versions have since fixed that issue.

Speed fluctuates greatly, can I make it better?

The speed on uTorrent is very irregular, sometimes I have 2mb/s but most of the time I'm trawling down at about 100-200kb. Anything I can do? I have updated trackers list

Set your uTorrent to the configuration in the top answer. This will give you a more stable download platform to work with. If you are using WiFi, you may want to consider hooking up to it with Ethernet instead of OTA. Depending on where your router is located in the home, it can pick up interference as it travels OTA.

My downloading is stuck at 99.7 %.

My Torrent downloading is stuck at 99.7 %.

This happens when a person downloads a torrent from another person, and suddenly, the seeder leaves. The person cannot get the entire file, but more people then start downloading from him or her. This results in an incomplete torrent with several people waiting for the original person to come back. You can find another torrent, wait for the person with the whole torrent to show up, contact the copyright owner of the purchased product to get it via other means (if it is a commercial product), or add trackers as shown in this tutorial.

This is largely dependent on the number of seeders and how popular the game is at the time. If the seeders are overwhelmed with the response then you will be waiting in a holding pattern for the next available connection.

Instant download Xbox 360 game?

I need an Xbox game asap for a present and I need it quick... possible?

It is best to not gift any illegally downloaded Xbox 360 games. Also, downloads of this magnitude take at least 2 to 3 hours even with the fastest speeds and you never really know what you are downloading until the person plays it. Xbox gives out two free [www.xbox.com/en-CA/live/games-with-gold Games with Gold] each month and there is a long list of games you can get through them for free. You create an account and then grab the offers. The current list of Free To Play has games such as DC Universe available for free to download. This would be your best option to get a free game.

Clear your Recycle Bin and restart the PC then update or re install the lastest version of uTorrent. The torrent is picking up a conflict. This is the best way to restart a previously downloaded torrent again. If you are simply trying to seed for people then follow the same steps and set it up for seeding after you have put a fresh download in uTorrent.
