Hi. I'm downloading the HQ Episodes of the Season 7. As you know the download of Bit Torrent has a sequence, what I mean is a new episode start to download after the previous one is finished. I have completed the download of the Episode Seven and The Cadillac Part 1, but when I try to playback them in Windows Mwdia Player 9 in XP and message said

"Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The file is either corrupt or the Player does not support the format you are trying to play."

I have the DivX 5.0.2 codec so what's the problem? I'm, trying to download the HQ episodes because I had already download the Season 7 in low quality and the episode "The Cadillac part 1 is corrupt" and is the only Episode I need.
Can anyone help me with this problem?

Thanks a lot!

Don't worry. For whatever reason none of the episodes are playable until the whole torrent has downloaded. Although it looks like episode x has downloaded and it is now on episode y it doesn't seem to complete them until the very end.

Well, if BitTorrent says the file is done (assuming your client has that feature) the file should be done. Remember that in some versions done and 100% are not the same thing, even though it should be.

The thing is, most clients won't update the files until you close BitTorrent. So if you really want to see the video, close BitTorrent, refresh the directory and the file should not be updated. You can check the filesize to see if it did indeed update it.

*BE SURE THE FILE IS NOT OPEN IN ANY OTHER PROGRAM (LIKE MEDIAPLAYER) AT THE TIME YOU CLOSE BITTORRENT!!!* If you've got the file open in some other app, BitTorrent won't be able to update it and you might lose your progress. Good Luck...
