So I followed the link for the CD one off of the Dban website but once I've downloaded it there is no ISO file. I see an IMA file but no ISO. Downloaded about ten times now and it's being elusive or something. I've posted on the DBan help forums too hoping to get a reply off one of my posts ASAP.

Any help would be appreciated please. Thank you.


EDIT:
When it downloads I need to use winrar to unpack it. Don't know if that's doing anything or not to cause a problem.

I just went to THIS site and downloaded it as an ISO file.

The iso needs to be burned to the CD using a cd program such as Nero. It will not work if you copy it.

Ok maybe I'm retarded, I'll be the first to admit.

When I download the ISO file it comes bundled and needs to be open with Winrar. When I go to extract the contents I don't see any ISO file at all.

While downloading it says its an ISO file but once winrar comes into play there's only an IMA file along with a few folders and other stuff. I'll try to post some screen shots of what I'm getting.

By the way, thanks for the reply.

EDIT:

Right after download.

After unpacking with winrar

Hope the images are clear. As you can see, no ISO file :). What am I doing wrong?
