...never seen that happen (but the windows download manager hasn't really been there for long)...i would try downloading the image again because it should be downloading as an .iso image

dlm would stand for "download manager"

I saw this on a download when I downloaded an earlier beta, but it didn't download the final few bytes--so what you have is an incomplete download

Do an MD5 checksum check on your downloaded file. I did that on mine and found it was only 99.7% correct.
