    it will take a lot of time to download the ISO image again. But fortunately there is a way out. All you have to do is turn to torrent clients, for instance, BitTorrent or uTorrent.

    While downloading any file, which is especially important for large files (for example, the iso images of DVDs),the torrent client automatically checks the checksums of files and if some part is downloaded incorrectly, it automatically downloads it again.

    So it is enough for you just to take the torrent file of your image and load it to the torrent client specifying that you have an incompletely downloaded file. After that the torrent client will check your file, find the place where there was a failure and download the valid part.

    hope it will help you...

    Majorgeeks.com do not help users engage in illegal activities such as the downloading of illegal software. Therefore I am going to assume that you are downloading some content from a legal source. I would recommend you either download it again and see if it corrupts again, or download it from another legal source.

    There is programs such as RAR repair tool and others... anyway since you can open ISO images as RAR files you should try repairing the ISO file as a RAR file and then when you have all files repaired turn the files to ISO with a image maker or something ;P
    There is a 40%-60% chance of this working so yeah better try this thAn downloading the entire ISO again..

    As I have said before, many bad things get downloaded onto your machine along with most torrents.
    I bet more than 1/2 of the people that visit the Malware forum for help are torrenters.

    Download UTorrent. Find a torrent, select open on download and it does it all for you. Torrents allow a few to thousands to share the same file and download it in multiple pieces from all these people. It also allows you to share what you have downloaded. So its like anonymous file sharing.

    Be careful out there, I have used it many times for legit purposes but malware is waiting for you if your going to download illegal moview, music, software, etc. All those people on our malware forum needing help are there for a reason.
