I don't want to use any USB drive with my Raspberry Pi because my SD card has 32GB storage. So i put /home/pi/torrent/downloads and /home/pi/torrent/incompleted location in the /etc/transmission-daemon/settings.json file. But I'm getting error everytime after downloading 4mb of any torrent. I have also tried changing /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon replaced the line "USER=debian-transmission" with "USER=pi", changed the ownership of /home/pi/torrent/downloads and /home/pi/torrent/incompleted to pi:pi but still not working.

Here is my full /etc/transmission-daemon/settings.json code:
