Common BitTorrent Error Messages
The bulk of the following errors are most commonly caused by problems not related to your computer. BitTorrent trackers are often unavailable/slow due to high traffic. It is typical for your BitTorrent client to keep retrying. Often the tracker will come back online and result in the download successfully completing, even with an error message.
This error is not directly related to BitTorrent. It is a VERY high probability the error lies within one of two issues. Both are directly related Your NIC card and your operating system. This is a Network Card problem. The solution is to make sure Windows is not IRQ sharing anything else important with the Network Card. And Update your NIC Drivers.More instructions on DRIVER IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL Solutions.
Problem getting response info - [Errno 2] No such file or directory: "C:\\Documents and Settings\..."
Cause: Internet Explorer sometimes doesn't BitTorrent files (torrents) in the Temporary Internet Files directory properly. It seems to disproportionately affect files with brackets (']' and '[') in the filename.
Solution: Right click on the link and choose Save As..., and save the torrent file to disk, and then double-click the file to launch the client. Clearing the IE cache seems to help if this problem is recurring.
A piece failed hash check, re-downloading it
Typically this is a safely ignored BitTorrent error message. It means that you received a piece of the file that when verified was found to be corrupt. It will automatically be downloaded again. If its at 99.9% and it seems to keep having a problem with the same piece, then there is a problem on your end. Luckily there are solutions, Check out this page for Solutions.
