If you're asking do md5sum and sha1sum give different results for the
same input, the answer is yes.

# echo "blah blah" | md5sum

# echo "blah blah" | sha1sum

Also make sure that you are using the right md5 or sha1 hash from the

Normally the torrent software should have taken care to check every
block is okay.  If you're worried it is not okay, what I would do is
restart the bittorrent action.  The bittorrent software should go
through what you have already making sure it matches the hashes in the
.torrent file.

Make sure you are using the appropriate official .torrent file
