    Hi gabblack666,

    I was having this problem, googled it up and then updated the torrent downloader I was using and that fixed my magnet link problem.
    If that were not to work, I would try a different downloader; I currently use both BitTorrent and Tixati successfully with magnet links.

    Good Luck
