Ok so you downloaded Transmission.
Then you mounted it (by selecting the .dmg file you downloaded).
It opened, and you dragged the icon to the applications folder, installing it.
So, now you go to a torrent site.
You download the torrent file.
Wherever you put it, you select it, and it should either:
1) be associated with Transmission, opening Transmission, and starting to download to the location you specified, or
2) your Mac will ask you what application you wish to associate with the file you selected (the torrent file) choose Transmission, and Transmission will open, and download to the desired location.
But when I drag it to the program, it always says theres an error and downloads ziltch.
As far as I know there is no "dragging to the program", I suppose you could open it (Transmission), and drag it (the torrent file) there, but that would certainly be the long way around.

Assuming Transmission itself is working (ie application can launch), and that you downloaded a .torrent file... Maybe the torrent itself is broken. Try another one? Without seeing what the error is, we can't give much more than suggestions based on guesswork
