That's because the blockchain is long and heavy. Your clients needs to verify each transaction on it. It takes long, and it will take longer with time.

It took me a full week to synchronize the blockchain.

If you need/want to start operating immediately with bitcoins I would suggest the blockchain.info ewallet. It will be set up in seconds, and security-wise you should be OK with a few coins for day-by-day expenses.

If you want to have a big balance on a secure savings wallet very fast, I would suggest creating a paper wallet offline with this web: https://www.bitaddress.org/

The next major release - 0.8 - will help a lot with these problems - and if you use an SSD (rather than a traditional hard-drive) that will also make a big difference (assuming you are wanting to use the Satoshi client rather than a "lighter" one).

With CIYAM anyone can create 100% generated C++ web applications in literally minutes.

Restart the client. Sometimes it helps.

Hey thanks for the reply. I just made an account on https://blockchain.info. is this secure enough to have bitcoins there?I`m so excited about this bitcoin thing that i didnt slept for 48 hours. i`ll soon have some visa visa giftcards for sale and some paysafecards(i already have them for over 1 year).
Can someone give me few shares of a bitcoin? i`m excited to have something inside my wallet. it shows zero right now lol :)Who gives me anything i`ll give him someday double Smiley . I dont want 1 bitcoin..i want something...to have something there..and i want only 1 person to send. this is not to be rich..or anything..just want to have something inside lol Smiley i think i`m going crazy
my wallet on blockchain is:
1MH8ior2ERF4sv2CLRsXm3WkBfp8eJLhET

It takes days because it has to download the whole blockchain (over 5GB) and because the database system it use is horribly slow. Next version will be much better. It will still have a fail interface and will take minutes to launch etcetc.

This said, please use another client, like Multibit or Electrum. Or use blockchain.info

Alternatively you can download the Electrum client. You keep your own wallet and doesn't download the blockchain so it is instant.

Try using an online wallet

it's safe and managed by a trusted
member of the BTCtalk :

No need for downloading
the blockchain.
It's a blockchain explorer for God's sake

36 hours and my wallet is not syncronized yet. i still have 8% for more than 10 hours i dont know what to do. why is taking so long?

8% to go or 8%???  If you stall out at anything less than block 180,000 or so it's a network/bandwidth issue, past 180k (or whenever satoshi dice started) it could be a variety of issues

and the best way to DL it is to connect to a single peer, using maxconnections=1, listen=0, and connect=<node>

one of the fast nodes ofc, not someone on a DSL or something.  when it requests from someone w/ crap upstream, you end up waiting some godawful period of time before it moves on

Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).

You could just download most of the darn thing as file:
http://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/3551/how-can-one-download-the-initial-blockchain-data-files-securely

Probably only slightly more dangerous than downloading blocks from some random client.

Or if you are in a real hurry, and you don't mind some serious risk, try the Instawallet.
Personally I use the Multibit client.

For only a few coins for daily use, it's probably the easiest and fastest way to start with bitcoin. Blockchain.info's MyWallet is a very good service indeed.

I would recommend:

- blockchain.info as a starting point, to have a daily expenses wallet
- paper wallet/armory for a savings account

Ditch the original client, its shitty. I had the same problem, then I downloaded Multibit and it was many times faster, 100% complete in about a day or day and a half. Electrum is pretty good to, no need to wait for any download

Use an SSD. It speeds things up tremendously. I switch between a SSD and  a HDD  on my laptop (work/private), and on my desktop I multiboot various OS's on SSDs and HDDs. Regardless of the machine or the OS, on the SSDs it syncs a week in a few minutes or so. on the HDDs, it just keeps going forever and ever and ever. Ive given up on it, the full client is unusable on a harddrive unless you keep the machine on 24/7. If you dont have an SSD, might be worth just trying a USB stick.

I do think this is something devs should tackle though. They have to be doing something wrong or using a crappy DB. Synching the Bitcoin client uses far too much disk IO. Surely some or most of that can be done in RAM, no?
