Hi, I've recently downloaded utorrent and as a complete novice I found it a total nightmare to set up. I've finally got it running and downloaded my first torrent and dont know what to do with it. The help forum at the site is completely useless and the users seem to be very anti newbie.

The problem I have is- I was expecting a single playable file ( as if downloaded from mp3 rocket or limewire)
instead I have a folder with about 40 VOB, BUP and IFO files ????

can anyone explain what to do with them ? Its taken so far a couple of days to get the program working and 4 days to download the torrent. Its really doing my head in !

I would be very grateful for any advice

Hi there, I hope u are grateful for my advice, as im sure it will be useful. As a noobie myself, i did not find it that hard to set up Utorrent, could you please detail the problems you have in setting it up? eg. Port forwarding a hassle?

Secondly, you have downloaded a folder with a "with about 40 VOB, BUP and IFO files ????" VOB BUP and IFO files are all DVD formattted files, meaning they play on your DVD player. Im not sure what movie you have downloaded, but im sure that it is in DVD format and ready to be burnt onto a dvd for viewing. To view it on you computer VLC player is the way to go.
P.S Dont expect DVD quality movies from Utorrent, if they are bellow 4.7GBs. 4.7gb is the standard DVD size, and should be DVD quality if it contains just the movie without the special effects.
