I'm having trouble getting the Md5 sums to match for an iso file. ThatI downloaded from the internet. I'm really not convinced I am using the checker correctly. The program I'm using is winmd5free. Does anyone know of a simple md5 checker that a newbie can use?

Thank you.

Thanks,

I'm trying to burn a LiveDVD of Ubuntu for an old laptop. I downloaded another program (WinMDSUM) to check the sum and it also indicated a mismatch, so I guess I'm doing it correctly. Don't know why this is happening. I am downloading from the Ubuntu web site as well.

How to burn ISO image using Windows Burn Disk Image.
 
Notice:  This applies only to Windows 7 and Windows 8, earlier versions do not have this.  
 
1.  Place a blank CD or DVD in the tray of your optical drive and close the tray.
 
2.  After you have downloaded the ISO image you want to burn right click on the Start orb, then choose Windows Explorer.
 
3.  When Explorer opens click on Downloads in the left pane.  Scroll down till you find the ISO file you want and double click on it.  Click on Burn Disk Image.
 
4.  In the image below you will see Disk burner:, this should be set to the optical drive you want to use.  Click on Verify disc after burning if you want to Windows to verity the disc image after burn.  Click on burn.

5.  In the image below you can see that the green progress bar, when the image is finished burning the bar will be filled.

Sometimes doing big downloads using the browser can result in bad files I suggest you try with a download manager like Free Download Manager Lite.

Thank you,

 

I looked at FDM. I didn't see any reference to Win7, do you know if it will work in that O.S.?

Hello,

I use HashTab to check any files hashes:

It is good, once you install the program you can right click on any file -> go into properties -> Click on the tab "Hash Tab" and you will have all your hashes :)

Yes it works. They changed the page recently and the information is missing.

Thanks to everyone for the input.

 

Found out what the problem was. I downloaded the iso file with my wives laptop and had no trouble. The hash tags matched and I was able to install Ubuntu. I guess there is something wrong with my desktop. Don't really know what the problem could be. Have downloaded may things in the past, but never an iso.

Thanks again.
