why don't you just make some space on your hard drive, donwload kubuntu (maybe with torrent), check if iso file is large enough and burn it to usb (maybe with unetbootin)?

Did you use Brasero to burn your dvd?

By failed do you mean that the burn to the disc failed and the file/install was not on the dvd?
