I’m downloading a torrent with many files and it’s been at 99.7% for a few months. I would like to know how to search on emule for the same files?

I’ve thought maybe I can get the hash for a file in qbittorrent but I couldn’t and even if I had it, there isn’t a database with all the hashes for a file so I couldn’t find the emule hash with the bittorrent one.

I don’t think it’s possible, one is a MD4 hash one is SHA-1

I think it’s possible because BitComet, MLDonkey and Shareaza can download files from multiple networks at once even when they use different hashes, but I just don’t know how they manage to do it.

How would that work though.

Yes this is what I’ll have to end up doing, but then I can’t seed the completed torrent, and there’s probably more people who want to complete it.

You could seed it, just move the files into the correct place for the torrent to work. Your torrent client will validate them, you already have the hash info.

Just search by name? And download the missing files manually.

I still would need a way to figure out if the file corresponds to the torrent one. There may be different files with the same or similar name. If I don’t get the torrent one I can’t seed it.

Maybe the magnet link?

I’ve tried copy and pasting the magnet link from qBittorrent to aMule but it didn’t find anything. Have you tried this before? I just don’t think the edonkey network uses magnet links.

Oops I misread… didnt know you were trying to download with emule
