chromebook is trying to download it. if it is big that might be a problem as chromebooks have very little storeage.
thanks

see it is 3.1 GB that should be OKAY but it says it will take 3 hours - hope it does better than that!

EXACTLY what do i do with the file when it arrives? Copy it to a DVD? we make DVDs of videos etc so i can probably burn it when i find out what that means

thanks

It may take a long time to download the large iso. It depends on the speed of your internet connection. People who pay for more expensive plans from their internet service provider will have faster download and upload speeds.

Just be patient.

Burning ISO's normally work more often if they are burnt at a lower burn speed!
Also, enter a Volume Label [it makes it easier to identify what is on the DVD afterwards] and check the Finalize Disc box!

Have you got a USB?

To burn the ISO to a USB, you can either use Rufus 3.4 or Rufus 3.4 Portable.

Yes, we want to burn the ISO image to a DVD, so you could try it!

I have Googled the Hardware Error 8448 and it seems to be a common problem with Free ISO Burner.

Try using ImgBurn => ImgBurn and burn it at 4X speed [or the slowest speed available].
