Hi sunandoghosh

Have you tried to download the same file again, but try to save the file in a different location, sometimes the file can be corrupted from who knows what on the big pipe. :tazz:

Second thing to test is your reader program. See if one of your friends will burn the file to cd, and see if you can read it on your cp.
