Download


I have download mint 19 via torrent.
When i unzip the iso file i get the message:
There are some data after the end of the payload data.
Why?
Have i do some thing wrong? Or can i still use it?

Why are you unzipping the iso file? An iso file is an image of a cd or dvd and is intended to be burned directly to a blank CD or DVD to create a copy of the original. It is not a compressed file to be unzipped or whatever.

But it isn't a zipped (compressed) file. If you want to install from a USB stick, go back to your distribution's site and look for their specific instructions on installing from a usb stick rather than a CD or DVD. There are normally special instructions for loading the installation media to a USB stick.
