Where could i find nero for mac Os ? Free

Do a search on this site im sure you will find it there. I hope youre familiar with torrent files which are a tracker and finds all the people sharing the program youre after. Once you get the torrent file from this site you need a free program such as bittorrent to download the program. Cheers from Scott

Im been trying to download version 1.10 update software for Call Of Duty:Black Ops, and it simply wont let me download it, it goes until 6% downloaded and it fails. My error code is 80710723 and i've...

80710723 Possible Port Error - Try opening ports , TCP port: 80, 443, 5223 and UDP port: 3478, 3479, 3658. or add Ps3 to DMZ

You really might want to try creating the connections again on your PS3 system on the same modem/router you are using.

Just re-configure you connection settings and see if that helps.

When i download imesh it stated that :" run time erorr in setup script" Please help me, thank u very much

Honestly, I recommend NOT downloading BearShare or iMesh. They're sites where other people put up file-sharing things, and it's all full of viruses that can get into your system. I downloaded LimeWire and after a week, I had files and files of hidden Trojan viruses.
Instead I highly recommend Freecorder 4. I've had it for a while and it's great.
Here's the link if you want it:
All it is is a recorder. Go onto YouTube, type in any single song you want (and make sure it's at its highest quality sound) and click the record button on it and play the song. When the song ends, hit "Stop Recording" and a new window will pop up with the recorded audio.
All you do is follow the directions and you can have a virus-free audio recorder. Hope it works out

Im not sure how to forward ports so i can download faster, at the moment im going at a slow 0.5KB/s ..... very rarely it jumps to 150 KB/s for a few secodns then falls back down again, peopel tell me to...

The speed of the download depends on how fast the computer that is holding the file(s) that you want can "send" the files.

Imagine one fast-food worker trying to serve 8 or 32 customers at the same time -- no matter how fast the worker is, everybody will get "slow" service. There's nothing you can do, at the order-pickup desk, to get "faster" service.

Similarly, "port-forwarding" is not the CORRECT answer to your downloading problem.

If you try to download something from a "fast" server (e.g., the latest version of Apple iTunes software), do you get "good" download speeds? If so, your computer and your router are working fine.

I want to port forward my router it is Nokia

> 100 Kb/second [using] browser

Web-servers, such as the one hosting '',
are designed to give fast download speeds.

> BitTorrent ... 2-3Kb/second

When you are downloading, you are connecting to other people's "home" computers. Typically, their ISPs (Internet Service Providers) limit the speed of "uploading" (going "out" from those home computers) to a value about 1/8 of the "downloading" (going "into" those home computers) speed. That is "Strike One".

So, if multiple BitTorrent users are simultaneously "leeching" some files from the _same_ home-computer, that computer's speed-per-user is going to be very limited. That is "Strike Two".

Also, BitTorrent has been programmed to discourage "leechers" -- those who download to their computers, but who do not offer to "share" any content. So, being "behind" a router, your computer is being "blocked" from allowing people to "upload" (from your computer) and download (into their computer) any content. That is "Strike Three".

Login to the web-server on your router, and enable and configure "port-forwarding", to allow others (including the "Copyright Police" who monitor BitTorrent for violation of copyright law) to access your computer. (Violate copyright, and pay a big fine, and maybe go to jail.)

How come every time i download limewire in try to run it always say no connection.but when i ask other people they tell me to check my firewall but when i do lime wire be on the list so what should i do to...

There is many potential firewalls in the typical home that may prevent LimeWire from accessing the service.

The computer with LimeWire is the first place to check. If using Windows, there is a built in firewall with access rules. If you have a Internet Security Suite such as Norton 360, then it will need to be configured to allow access. Next is the router or firewall if you use one. The manufactured of the device will have documents on their website that explain how to configure the device for port forwarding. If this is the case make sure the ports associated with LimeWire are forwarded correctly.

After that may be the modem itself as many modems such as ones used for DSL are multipurpose devices and make use of a built in firewall & modem. Search your internet service provider for files related to access and configuration of your modem.

If all this is setup and it still does not work, your Internet Service Provider (ISP) may have blocked the ports specific to LimeWire and many other peer to peer file sharing networks (P2P) such as Bit Torrent. If the traffic is blocked by the ISP there is little that can be done.

Hi i have a satellite internet provider and im trying to set up my linksys broadband router so i can hook up my xbox 360 my problem is everytime i hook it up im getting no internet connection can you tell...

there are two things to be addressed in this case.firstly you have a satellite internet provider which can create consistency issue.then when you connect a xbox to router you need to do a port forwading on linksys router(port forwarding=opening ports in router so your xbox can communicate freely).in order to do the port forwarding you have to log onto router user interface.then go to applications and gaming tab,where you can do the port forwarding.
but before doing so,you have to contact microsoft to know the ip address assigned to the xbox and the ports(numbers) to be opened.
thank you.
