Okay, Demonoid is down and it looks to be for an extended amount of time. Are there any other free torrent download sites that have a good selection? Any assistance would be appreciated.

Check into newsgroups. Completely worth the effort and small investment to get started.

More specifically, check out Giganews.

Specifically the $11/mo Astraweb special to save $4 off their normal rates. They had a $96/yr special a few months ago which I switched to for an uber low $8/mo rate.

To answer the torrent question, yes there are some great private torrent trackers out there. Newsgroups win for recently released content, but some specialized music/tv/game/book/etc trackers have more obscure/older content available. A combination of both is the best solution.

HEY NOW! I hadn't seen those fellas in the past. 401 day retention FTW!

Thanks for the heads up.

What are some of these besides Demonoid?

Demonoid is not one of them. All the good private trackers have strict ratio, content, and conduct rules. Many of them have user limits which makes it very difficult to get in.

Music:
http://what.cd/
http://waffles.fm/
(others for specific genres)

TV:
http://www.bitmetv.org/
http://www.tvtorrents.com/

E-Learning:
http://www.bitme.org/
http://bibliotik.org/
http://bitspyder.net/

Movies:
http://www.passthepopcorn.org/
http://goem.org/
(others for specific genres and HD, I prefer newsgroups)

Games:
http://www.blackcats-games.net/
(not a big gamer so I'm not up on these)

Scene:
Good ones can't be named.

There are tons of niche oriented trackers for sports, adult content, anime, and about anything else that can be downloaded. FileShareFreak has a big list of private trackers that's continually updated. This somewhat outdated list of tracker invite requests shows what sites are frequently requested (though not always the best).

The BT forums at FileSharing Talk should fill you in on most relevant info for outsiders.

Thanks for the info. Since I am stationed in Japan and we don't get a lot of stuff I have to resort to downloading.

If you're looking for recent American TV and movies then nothing really compares to the ease and security of newsgroups.
