See the Good Settings guide.
You probably shouldn't download more than 4 at once.

Just force the downloads by right clicking on them and selecting "Force Download". That did it for me. Or go to options and that "setup Azureus thing and it'll allow you to select how many you can have going at one time based on what internet speed you select.

If that doesn't work, not sure?

If you're going to force start your torrents, just ignore all the good settings and other advice we offer to help you achieve good speeds. Because that's what force starting does.

^ that ^

The good settings will get you the most content per given time-period. If you use force start to get 10 torrents running at once, the overhead of all of those connections, and of the protocol traffic involved in that many connections will be enormous.

Also: In some cases, you can even go so far as to crash your router under the load, or make it reject connections based on the fact it thinks its under attack!

First thing you should do, after going to "help/NAT-Firewall-test" in the Azureus-menu and confirming you are connectable
is go to "/tools/options/mode" in Azureus and choose "advanced" !
Also check what port Azureus is set to use ! (Or even better : choose one yourself !!
Obviously, if the NAT-test fails you need to fix that)
Next, you need to check that 'auto-speed' hasn't set some ridiculously low limits ..
It often does that during the first install, especially if you haven't port-forwarded properly .
Go to "Tools/Options/queue" and review the settings .
If you don't get anyway near your max download-speed (assuming you fixed any NAT-issues !)
it is totally acceptable to increase to max number of simultaneous downloads and also the max number of running torrents .

First of all: be sure to have read the good settings page: http://wiki.vuze.com/w/Good_settings. And you should also have good torrents: http://wiki.vuze.com/w/Good_torrent.

Second: there can be good reasons to increase the max number of simultaneous downloads and the max number of running torrents, but do so only in moderation, for too many active torrents will waste your bandwidth with overhead data. Note that the number of max active torrents includes both downloading and seeding torrents. Another way to get more torents running is to specify (on the Options / Queue page) when a torrent should be counted. Increasing the speed limit for Don't count torrent as using a download slot if speed limit is below or Don't count completed torrent as using a slot if speed is below will also result in more active torrents. But remember: more running torrents = more protocol data traffic, so don't indulge.

The golden rule is to get the highest speed with the fewest active torrents.
