Okay, So I downloaded My ISO File, but I have no idea how to use WinMD5Sum to see if it is correct.:) Please Help me.:)


EDIT: I figured it out, but it is not the same, I downloaded it twice and still not the same, do you think it is my browser?

Normally, it's quite unusual to get corrupted downloads these days - the last time I had any corruption it was back on an old floppy disk.

Are you sure you are comparing the correct MD5SUM number for the .iso file that you have?

Heres a walk through.


Find the md5 hash for your version of Ubuntu here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuHashes
In winmd5sum - solid blue software, click on the file browser to the Right of the "File Name" text field, browse to the Ubuntu ISO you downloaded.
Copy paste the MD5 hash found in t step 1 into the "Compare" text box.
Click the "Compare" button on the right; if all goes well you'll get an "MD5 Check Sums are the same", meaning it is now safe to burn your ISO image to a CD.
