Thanks for the response and the info. Regarding the img file. I did
download it as an IMG file so why or how did it get corrupted? I then
left it the was it was and tried to burn it. I am also in the process
of downloading the same file as a .sit file, so if I am able to get it
in this format, can you explain what I need to do from there?
