new to Mac, new to Transmission

Post by boregeek »

Hello. If I were not a new Mac user, I could probably figure this out. But...

I just installed Transmission on my new Mac. I have successfully downloaded two torrents. When they were finished, I did a little search for them, found them, and watched them. They work splendidly.

But, I just downloaded a third one. It looks like it worked just like the others. It's all completed. But, I cannot locate the actual .avi file. when i click on the torrent and click the "i" button, it says there should be an .avi file. But, I search the machine and the only .avi files are the other two that I already know work. I am very confused.

Thank you!

You need to go thru Transmission's Preferences for starters. To locate the data file find the torrent in the Transmission window and click on the magnifying glass symbol on the far right side.

Thanks for that quick reply. I appreciate it.

It did not work. When I click on the magnifying glass for either of the two functioning downloads, it takes me to the downloads folder that contains the AVI file. For this torrent though, when I click the magnifying glass, it just highlights the selected torrent in blue. It does not take me to the downloads folder or any folder at all, for that matter.

Try downloading the torrent again. Perhaps you deleted the data by mistake. :?:

If you can't find it and Transmission still has the torrent, move it to a location you can easily find. Select the torrent, File > Move Data File To..., and select a folder like your Desktop to find it easily.
