To download the Races using bit-torrent:

1. Install a Bit-Torrent client, examples:

* http://www.bittornado.com/download.html

* http://www.bitcomet.com/doc/download.htm

* http://www.utorrent.com/download.php

2. Once the client is installed, Click and open the torrent link provided in our torrent list. This should open in your Bit-Torrent client. If it does not, save the torrent file and open with your client.

3. Select a place to save the file

4. Wait

* It can take a long time to download depending on the numbers of users downloading/sharing the file. It usually gets faster with time so be patient.

* If your download is always really slow, often your firewall (either software or hardware) has to be configured to allow traffic through the port that the bit torrent client uses. On routers this is known as NAT settings. Just find the port number in the client options (e.g 9663) and use your firewalll settings to allow traffic on that port.

* If you continue to have problems POST IN GENERAL

5. Hopefully after a while you’ll have the complete file.

To view the Video:

* Some of the files are encoded in DivX and other formats, this will often require you to install additional codec’s for your media player to decode the information. This covers about most things:

o http://www.free-codecs.com/download_soft.php?d=294&s=95

* If you’re having performace problems with viewing the file in Windows Media or Real Player, try the files in “Media Player Classic” which should be available with the codec pack above.

* If all else fails, download this and play your files, it plays almost anything.

To Burn the Video to DVD

the best progam I have found is called “Convert X to DVD”

it’s really easy to use, you just add any video file into the program, and then put a dvd in your drive and click convert.

here is a link to the program: ConvertXtoDVD
