So the RUST 1 ISO Dload is about 4GB?

I've a ADSL2 broadband connection that will download 10Mb in 30 sec, anyone with better GB numeracy than me have an idea how long 4GB might take? If it's hours then I might spring for the DVD and avoid the potential drop out hassles.

You'll have to do your re-calculations TB.

10mb X 40 = 400mb

Should be 10x the figure you posted. 3 hours, 20 minutes. (I think)

That actually makes me think.......

Aren't the ISO files packed with RAR or 7-Zip or something?

That would make them a lot easier (and quicker) to download.

Compressing ISO-images of video DVDs doesn't do much good. If you're lucky, you save around 5%, and it will cause more problems. I can tell you from experience that there are still lots of people who can't handle compressed ISOs.

I did email Jed, and it may be a while before he gets back to me given the big time diffs. I wonder if anyone here has this issue. I got the RUST ISO, no download issues. It mounts on my Mac and plays from there, but I can't burn the files to a playable DVD.

I burned a DVD of the mounted ISO files, but this only copies the raw files in their respective folders, not in a playable format.

Hmm, now the mounted ISO drive won't play either...

I hate the drama's with this stuff :(

Mov files are so much easier and that's what I buy these days if I buy something like that and have the choice - but seems a lot of people proefer the full dvd quality...

Sorry you got hassles there Drubbing, but I know very little about all that so you'll have to wait for the jedi.

Thanks mate.

Never had any issues with MOV files either. Also now discovered that the DVD or mounted ISO crashes iMovie software, so that might be something Jed wants to look into. When I demount or eject the DVD, iMovie starts and runs fine.

The ISO mount does now play, but I have to fire up the Macs DVD first. Doh. I used to be good at this stuff when I was younger...

How big is your ISO file?
Mine is 1,44gb and I have the same problem.
My download is 100 % complete but i can only watch until about 54 minutes then it stops.I can´t burn the ISO to a dvd because it says the file is broken.

I've tried the above. I'm on a Mac. The above poster doesn't seem to have got a complete download, so that's a different issue. He's going to have to get that before those links will help.

I have to convert ISO to M4v to make a viewable disc, but it crashes iMovie every time I try and load it. I can burn it to disc as is, but I only get the files, nothing playable. I've given up bothering.

Do you have all the latest QuickTime codecs on your Mac?


Do this....

I'm not sure why you need to convert ISO to M4v. ISO is a container/image. All you want to do is open and burn it. If upon the creation of the DVD after that you wish to rip the DVD and convert to another format that's a different story. At that point you would need the proper codecs... decoder to break it apart and encoder to place it back together in a new format. But that has nothing to do with burning an ISO.

It sounds like you are trying to create/render a DVD when you are supposed to simply be unpackaging and writing an ISO.
