Hi All, I would like to download and burn a Win7 iso disk. I have tried a few times but something is wrong . I start the download and it says it has downloaded X17-58996.iso. 2.4Gb. When I try to burn it to disk it says invalid which does not surprise me as it only takes a few sconds to apparently download. I would expect it to take several minutes. can anyone help please.

Thanks northumbria, that is one of the links I have tried. Says it has downloaded after about 2 seconds which it cant have done.

My post is more about not being able to download properly rather than actually needing it. I should have written a clearer heading.

Suggest you try installing a download manager such as Internet Download Manager (that one gives a 30 day trial, but I'm sure you could find others that are free).

I had trouble downloading the full ISO from the digital river site until I used IDM.

Thanks Batch, I thought w7 had a download manager, can anyone explain please I did not think that I had to instal additional software to do a download.

Check to see if it's downloaded a small file that you double click on to start the correct download. As some work like that

From the description here the Windows facility doesn't sound very sophisticated.

Thanks all, I thought I had green ticked this yesterday. For info, PC was trying to use a freebie download manager which had set itself as the default, got rid of it now fine.
