    When you are looking for songs then find ones that have the + next to them...this means that many people are online with those songs available....the speed up thing you mentioned is to find additional sources every 10 minutes or so....if you find a song with just one source then there are possibilities that you may have trouble downloading depending on the source you are connceting to....

    i actually don't look for songs, but usually the files i choose have multiple users and it also get's to the connecting phase. Whoever it flickers as in one minute there are 5 users, then none, and then maybe 3. after a while it just says more sources needed

    it sounds like you are just having bad luck or are choosing rare files.

    kazaa uses supernodes on user computers to speed searches. If the person who had the file logs off and you search before the supernode updates, then even though you had a search hit, you can't get the file.

    best thing to do is use the speedup program mentioned by the previous user, leave the machine on overnight if your on dialup (or always if your on broadband) and just come back later. eventually you will get the file.


    you might also play with the sig2dat info. I have had a lot of luck finding files with it.

    Well...

    If you're using AOL and aren't the master user, I don't think you can use Kazaa Lite.

    I found this problem when I USE to have Napster, and had AOL. My parents had security on it and I could never connect.

    That's why I have Cable Modem now:)
