Since you posted here I'm assuming they were music files. You probably need to go here:

http://www.etree.org/shncom.html#download

Download and install it, then select all of the SHN files. The program should pop up automatically and convert them to wav files. I don't have it on my PC anymore so I'm just going by memory.

By the way, the reason you can't play a torrent when you start downloading it is because it doesn't download a file the same way as a straight download from a server. With a bit torrent you leech off of as many seeders as you can download a little bit from each person. That is why you must wait for it to complete before using the file.

Oh, OK. Sorry I just assumed it was SHN since it was music.

And, no, I don't hate you. You annoy me sometimes but I think it's more of the age gap than anything else. I just find most people your age to be annoying as a whole.

don't you ever wonder how the gnomes that correct your spelling get food and water in there, though?

I think they are better than practically any other formats around out there because of the relatively high quality encoding scheme which results in a snappy download speed as well as lovely audio and picture levels.
