    Hi, hope someone can help with what may in fact be a simple problem...

    I am trying to upload a Torrent file into Azureus, and each time in the 'make torrent' process I am prompted to 'browse directory' and choose the file, I click 'next', and get a message in red type that says 'invalid file'.

    This is my first attempt to do this, I am a little confused so please be gentle with me and treat me like a 'newbie' if I ask dumb questions...

    Should I be attempting to select the 'little yellow folder' i.e the file I originally downloaded, or the torrent file with the little blue frog at this point in the 'make torrent' process? I get the error message when I try to select the little yellow folder, yet when I 'browse' at this stage in the 'make torrent' process it does not offer me the opportunity to select the 'little blue frog' (even though I know the 'little blue frog' torrent file is sitting in 'my documents'!) I even tried to drag the little blue frog from 'my documents' and drop it into the 'make torrent' bit of Azureus...no luck.

    I would really appreciate some help- I don't want to be the kind of guy who helps himself to torrent downloads without uploading anything! Thanks in advance.

    P.s (edit) Oh dear... it has just dawned on me that the reason there is a little blue frog in 'my documents' is that I have already created the torrent file!! Apologies folks.
