Does anyone use the devices in uTorrent? I have this random Samsung Galaxy S3 showing as disconnected under the device section, which says drag torrents into devices to initiate media conversations, but I have never plugged it onto my computer. I do not uTorrent remote access enabled, and nothing is showing up on the paired device section in the preferences menu. I personally do not use an S3, but I have a family member that does and it connects to the same wifi network. Is it showing up only because it works on the same wifi? Or should I be concerned?

Hi AnthonyY :)

From my experience with uTorrent, if you ever had a device connected to your computer or on the same WiFi network as you that used uTorrent in the past on it, it would be detected by your desktop application of uTorrent and show under "Devices". If you right-click on it, you'll have the option to "Remove device" if you want to get rid of it.

No problem Anthony :) Try to look for someone you know that have a Samsung Galaxy S3 if you can.

A little late but I have the same S3 showing. Must be a default graphic or something. I got droid phone and tabs, iphone and various laptops and wireless/Bluetooth devices around. None show up (fine with me) excepting S3 (which does not exist in my little world).
