I know this is not entirely or completely a Raspberry Pi question, but I am sure many people could help me out with what is going on and possibly had the same situation.
I am looking to download Raspbian for my memory card for my Raspberry Pi 2. I know you can get that, as well as NOOBS and other OS's at the Raspberry Pi site. https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspbian/ I have done this in the past (about a year and half ago) a couple times without any problems and much success. Long story short, my SD cards are bad, got new cards, need a new download and install and didn't save what I previously had (I think it was Wheezy).
I am using Windows to do the download and eventually to do the disk image (I don't currently have access to other OS's, but I do have access to a wide a variety of Windows OS). Currently, every time I try to download using the link provided, it will eventually stall and then try to auto-open the zip and then say that the file is corrupt. I know the site is not having problems, and I know how to prevent Chrome, IE, Mozilla from auto-opening the zip file. What is odd though is that the downloaded files each time are a different size, and always a different size than what is listed in the download amount (typically the download status bar says 1.4 GB which seems right, but the zip file is usually between 200MB and 600MB...all the while downloading on a gigabit ethernet it will say about 37+ mins remaining to download but complete in about 5).
What is the size amount that I should be looking for with this?
Has anyone else encountered similar problems recently, especially from the RaspberryPi.org website?
