Why can I not burn a Dell OS recovery file to a USB drive?

I downloaded the Dell OS recovery file and tried to burn it to a USB drive.   Every time I do this, I get the error message below.   I have tried to do this as an administrator, with the same result.   The USB drive was formatted using computer Manage.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The error digest a failure to expand the ISO, the download is incomplete, the ISO is corrupt.

Try to see whether you can mount the ISO to make it appear as another drive letter.

If the file downloaded was a ZIP, RAR or a self-extracting EXE - then arnold is correct, the downloaded file is incomplete or corrupt, and in that case you'll need to download it again.  This is not an unusual problem when downloading very large files, and I find that wget is more reliable when trying to get really big (100 MB and up) single files.

If there is an MD5 or other confirmation hash shown on the download page, be sure to confirm the hash after the file is downloaed.  Use WinHash or other hashing utility to confirm that the (a) the file you downloaded is what you expected, and (b) that it is not corrupt.
