Welcome to the forum! Unfortunately, you will probably have to download again. I would try downloading from another server. Sorry to have to give you bad news...

I have downloded it from different sites and when I come to write the ISO file I get errors like error writing to disk, had this on several different downloads so I won't bother downloading it again thanks for the help

Did you try to burn it as slow as possible? That is what everyone recommends.
I check the md5sum before I burn anything. Saves on disks too! :wink:

If you haven't completely given up, try this site.

Very fast for me in Canada, and the md5 has always been correct. (hope I didn't just jinx myself :lol: )
