Q: My downloads start, but then go into “queued” status. What does that mean?
Answer: iMesh is both a music subscription service and a file sharing program. Many of our files are coming from other iMesh users. They are files that other users decided to share with you.
Because of this, there is no guarantee that the file you found will always be available. The user that has the file might go offline, or shut down iMesh, or delete the file from his or her computer completely. Although the iMesh application tries to complete the file from other sources, it is possible that the file cannot be found and retrieved.
Here are some tips that might help you download the file you are looking for:
- Pause and resume downloading file
- Search for the file again, choose files with higher availability and download again.
- Increase the number of concurrent downloads.
You can do it by choosing the Tools Menu in the iMesh program and then choosing Preferences -> General.
