I want to download textbooks from this site:

But the download will not start. It says I must "reset how my browser handles magnet links."

I enable something called "torrent search" I found in chrome, but the download did not start after that. 


Any help would be appreciated in enabling "magnet links."

While the usage of torrents and magnet links itself is not illegal, using peer-to-peer filesharing in order to download copyright protected content (whether that is music, movies, games, books or anything else) is illegal and asking for help with this is prohibited by the board rules here at BC to which you agreed when you joined this site:



No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences. 


If you need text books, you should acquire them like anyone else, by buying or loaning them.


For the reasons mentioned above this topic has been locked.
