but what i would like to know is 'CAN THIS DOWNLOAD BE FIXED', cause its a pain to download entire dvd of some 4 gb size ( yes we can buy it on pre installed CD's and DVS's but there must b some solution) , are there any software to check bit by bit and what are the restriction, like is it any different to check downloaded file bit by bit from server than actually downloading it (detailed explanation will b greatly appreciated)
THANKS IN ADVANCE
the closest thing I can think of, is a bittorrent download. when you re-start a torrent, it checks the downloaded contents, and if it finds some DVD chunks corrupted, it downloads just those chunks again.
that is, of course, if there *is* a torrent available for the DVD you want to download. you'll have to search.
