Digital River Download painfully slow!

Q: Digital River Download painfully slow!

I purchased the student offer version of Windows 7 yesterday top up grade from XP, as for ?30 I thought I couldn't go wrong.

So there I was this morning thinking I could set a side a few hours to get it all up and running but 11 hours later i still dont even have all of the first .box file downloaded!

I live off campus (in the UK), but still have a cable broadband connection and can usually expect file download speeds of 300-800kb/s as reported by the windows download window.

Now I know that there is probably high demand on Digital River's servers at the moment, but still... My download has only managed 40-50kb/s on average with a couple of short peaks to 70-90kb/s.

At this rate it'll be tomorrow evening before I get to a point where I can install.

Anyone else having this problem, or ideas of how to speed things up? I ask as i can't find anywhere else which mentions this problem, only people talking about creating .iso files as if their download flew by and now they're installing.

Preferred Solution: Digital River Download painfully slow!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Ok, so I was finally able to get the main Expanded Setup file extracted.

But now I still have the 3 original files on my desktop... what do I do with them?

Also my expandedsetup file is this large:

Size: 3.01 GB (3,239,836,668 bytes)

Size on disk: 3.01 GB (3,241,648,128 bytes)

Contains: 874 files, 199 folders

But doesnt it need to be 3.02 or something? So did I download a bad version? Or do I have it all for 7 64?

I have heard lots about there being problems when people have downloaded Win 7 from Digital River as part of the student offer. Most of what I have heard is from people trying to got from 32 bit Vista/XP to 64 bit Win 7.
Are there any similar problems reported with the 32 bit win 7 download?

A:Question about Digital River Win 7 download

The biggest problem is how the download is delivered (an exe file), then expanding the file, then burning the files to a bootable ISO.... Personally, I wouldnt go through all those hoops if it were free... and apparently a lot of other people agree..

Apologies to folks who have already seen this:

Windows 7 student upgrade hell - Apple 2.0 - Fortune Brainstorm Tech

(link currently on front page of CNN)
As I posted several days ago, I am just shocked that MS didn't work with Digital River to get a solution out there ASAP...to avoid just this type of press. I really have been surprised that I didn't get an email a day or two after release day from DR or MS stating, "if you have issues, you can download the ISO from here." I mean seriously, what's the value of the ISO without a key?...and if you managed to get a cracked key, I doubt access to the install media is what is holding you back.

I am sure that this issue is DR's fault since they appear to have written the installer based on its signature...but the result is the same either way - bad press for MS and Win 7.

Anyway, just thought that I would share.

Hello! While I know that this is the very first day of Windows 7 release and everything, I just wanted to see if anyone had a similar problem and had found a way to fix it.
So, I finally got Windows 7 Professional Upgrade (since I'm a student) to start downloading through my Campus' proxy and after downloading smoothly for a half an hour or so it hit 68% and paused. At first I thought nothing of it, but now when I try to click "resume" it downloads about .01-.02mb of data and then pauses again all in less than a second.
Anyone know how I might fix this? I've exited the Download Manager and started it again a couple of times, and restarted my computer and have unplugged/plugged back in my Ethernet cord.
Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!

A few days ago I wanted to download Windows 7 Profesional 32 bit iso from Digital River. It started to download and then it stopped to download at 10.9 mb. I tried to download it with Free Download Manager, Internet Download Manager, DownThemAll but it also stopped at 99%. This problem is on all my browsers. I didn't have any Internet Connection problems while downloading the iso. I tried to download files that are larger than 2GB but its the same problem. I am on a DSL connection. I need this iso to install it on another computer. How to solve this problem ?

A:Why I can't download Windows 7 Profesional 32 bit from Digital River ?

Usually what happens after 99% is that the file is moved from a temp folder to the download folder, and then scanned by your antivirus program. Try and delete all browsing history, verify there's enough free space on the disk, and temporarily disable the antivirus.

It will not be in three seperate files. that was a torrented fiel. It will come in either an ISO (most likely) or a vhd (doubtful). to burn you take the ISO file and burn it to dvd using an app like IMGburn, or powerISO, etc

I downloaded from Digital River yesterday with the student discount, and had the same problem as everyone else "unboxing" the download. I used the fix that's been circling round the forums and have got it installed and working. The only thing I'm missing is a product key. Wasn't Digital River supposed to give me one in my confirmation email? I've received nothing of the sort, and would really like to activate this product I've purchased. I have product keys from previous versions of Windows that I've bought, but the machine I installed Windows 7 on was using Linux as its main operating system. Any thoughts?

Then boot from that to completely wipe your disk and reformat, make sure you have your key for when you start the installation. If you have a Windows Live account use that. Make sure you feel comfortable doing this and have anything you need backed up, this worked for me, I hope it works for you.

I've been following the above thread where a guy kept trying to download a Windows 7 iso from Digital River, and it was wrong size/'not an iso' etc. Even though I don't need any iso's myself, I thought I'd have a go at downloading one to see what the OP's problem was. Sure enough I had the same result - 2.49GB (not 3.09GB for x64). Twice in fact.

That was browser download, so I tried 2 separate download managers. Seemed fine at first, but both stopped at 99.9%. Curious . . .

I'm starting to wonder if Microsoft are playing the old 'poison torrent' game - record labels sometimes release bad torrents of music CDs into the wild and fans download them (illegally) but are disappointed when it's a fake. After a few more useless attempts to get the CD, the pirate gives up and buys the product (well that's the theory).

Pretty soon all computers on sale will be Windows 8, and a lot of folk will buy one but want to downgrade to W7. MS seem to be moving the goalposts on that scenario, but no probs - we can just get a W7 iso from Digital River. Or can we ???

Just like the 'poison torrents', after several failed W7 Digital River downloads I guess MS expect us all to give up and buy into W8 (and buy their video's + mp3's).

You can remove your tin foil hat - sort of.

I used Pale Moon to download the ISO mentioned in the thread and it was fine
(e.g. I could mount it via Virtual CloneDrive and look around at the files...
...I could also build a virtual machine from it via VirtualBox.).

I also downloaded two other ISOs at the same time. One was fine, but X17-59465 was weird.
The last ISO in the screenshot above should be that same size as the first ISO.
X17-59465.iso looked fine.
I could mount it via Virtual CloneDrive.
I could even start the OS install process, but it barfed:



Notice the size being reported during the download.
That download was the 3rd try.
The completed download below it was 2nd try.

And these two download attempts were via another ISP:

Both of those downloads were via IE10. Both claimed that the download was interrupted. I looked at the file size of the ".partial" file before hitting the Resume button. The ".partial" file was the same exact file size (2.619...) shown in the first image of this post. Pressing Resume started the download all over again - but the "resumed" download made no claim of an interruption. Each second try just gave me the 2.619... file.

How odd.

Having used their download manager to download these files, I now have 6 files: 4 .exe files (as expected) plus 2 files named setup1.box and setup2.box.

The .exe files are, however, only just over 70KB each, setup1.box is almost 3GB and setup2.box is 163KB.

Running the Home PRemium versions fails immeditaely, saying it can't find the required files. Running the Pro x64 .exe file starts to build a .iso file ("Unloading the box"), but then fails with an unspecified error.

A:Win7 Digital River Master Disc Won't Boot

You say you can't boot from the disk even after making correct BIOS boot order settings, but then describe the disk loading. How does the disk load if not booted?

Do you get the prompt to "hit any key to boot from CD/DVD drive?" If you do this, does it then begin loading with a progress bar and proceed as you say? That is booting from the DVD.

If it was not able to boot from the DVD then it would start into Windows 7 and probably bring up the Autoplay menu of the DVD in the drive. Is this what happens?

It is possible that the DVD only has the files and isn't bootable. If so, we can help you create a bootable ISO from the files to burn to a DVD.

I have been trying to figure this problem out for month's, but basically I cannot get the digital river ISO to install so that I can receive updates from Windows Update. I burned the ISO to a flash drive with Rufus by itself, and cannot get it to install onto my netbook without crippling windows update service. Is there another tool that I can use to install this from a flash drive successfully or no?

Hi!So I recived my Thinkpad x1 yoga 3:rd gen on the 18th of july and have been trying to return this machine since the 22second of july and I have yet to get even a RMA. I have now sent about 6 emails to the support through lenovo and have recently even contacted Digital River support directly and still now response what so ever. The problem is that I have payed for this machine, and these are not cheap machines as you all know, and I find it extremly frustrating that even though i have done nothing wrong since i am still within the 14 days of getting the product, i still get no help in returning my machine and get my money back. I live in the EU and if I dont get my money back and get a RMA so that I can send this machine back to lenovo, then that means that lenovo or digital river are breaking the law. So my tip to everyone is that you througly document when you get your product and carefully document when you send your emails so that you can prove that you are eligable to a return/refund and that you dont get scammed. Very wierd behaviour from such a big and well known company, espacially on machines that cost over 2k dollars... For those that wonder the reason i want to return this machine is that it heats up so fast when plugged in and there is some coil whine on it aswell as the fact that it does not cut it for the tasks i had in mind. The last reason is obviously my fault since i did not do enough research but the heat and the performance due t... Read more

I have been trying to figure this problem out for month's, but basically I cannot get the digital river ISO to install so that I can receive updates from Windows Update. I burned the ISO to a flash drive with Rufus by itself, and cannot get it to install onto my netbook without crippling windows update service. Is there another tool that I can use to install this from a flash drive successfully or no?

I have four usb 3.0 ports, one of them has max speed of 35-41 MB/s, tested with two different usb 3.0 drives.
Could a driver error cause just one port to be slow?

Core i5 3337U 1.8
Chipset Intel HM77 Express

A:Can one slow usb 3.0 port be river related?

Hi there
some of the passport / other self powered UBB3 drives aren't particularly fast - although faster than the usb2 disks. There is still an issue with Native usb 3 drivers for windows 8 -- maybe latest version of 8.1 might have fixed these.

Note also a lot of mobos that don't have native USB3 ports won't give you very fast usb3 speed with a pci extension card - bus speed isn't fast enough for true usb3 speed.

New laptops fitted with usb3 ports should provide full usb3 speed provided your device can handle it.

Note it's possible that your "Slow" usb 3 port is not a "powered one". Otherwise sounds like a defect - all 4 should have the same characteristics unless the manual says the spec is different.

Cheers
jimbo

Good evening,
 
I've been having issues with all browsers since a recent re-install of Win 7 Ultimate.
 
I've never had browsing issues before, and recently installed a new MB & RAM because my adoring nephew decided he wanted to 'fix' my front panel USB sockets with a screwdriver. Bless his cotton socks, and he's still alive but managed to fry everything else.
 
Since my install I've painstakingly re-installed everything from before and sat through a couple of years worth of updates, yet my browsing capability is no where near what it used to be.
 
All graphics, videos, Ads, particularly in Face Book, BBC iPlayer, You Tube and miniclip are very slow to load - even general web page load up take 6-10 seconds to fill all the page images.
 
I've run countless AV's, Spybot, Stopzilla in standard and safe mode - installed firefox tweaks to load pages quicker, checked to make sure my drivers are up to date, but no avail.
 
Please could I call upon your expertise to help me return my browsing enjoyment back to normality?
 
Thanks & Best Regards,
Chris

I would receomend definatly checking the page fill size... by default windows 7 sets it as automatically managed by system... if it is set to automatic then that is fine.. also youcould try disabling windows aero theme. also a disk optimizer / defragmenter would be good to run. you have a good video card , processor, and ram. so you just gota get the system to read the files and know were there are from the sounds of it ... also the thing i would recomend before you do anything ... is a check disk.. you go to start , click on my computer and right click ont he C: drive and go to properties. then go to the tools tab and schedule a disk check by checking both check marks .. then a disk check will be scheduled for the next time the machine will restart.

Common problem I guess but PC is dreadfully slow at times. Not talking about internet, just general usage. Symptoms: For example, I click on "Start" then "My Computer" and a blank window opens whilst the little torch icon searches for the contents. Why? Responses from the PC to clicking on buttons is slow. Loading my settings at log on is slow. Logging off is slow. Sometimes after my daughter has been on the PC and logged off correctly, when I try to log on the monitor screen is blank and the light on the monitor flashes ( hibernation ? ). Nothing can be done to resurrect the monitor so we have to switch off and on again.

This could very well be the wrong forum for this question so please feel free to move it.

Last week my internet browsing became painfully slow on my main work computer and I'm at my wits end as to what it could be. Any help is REALLY appreciated.

Every application still runs at top speed with no issues, it is just web browsing. I guess that isn't entirely true since internet dependant programs like Google Earth are slow as well, but it's the "internet" part that is slow on them.

I run CCleaner every day, I have AVG and and AVG PC tuneup both of which I run on a regular basis. I have Spy Bot search and destroy. I have malwarebytes. None of the above are finding any issues. and all are updated

I dont think it's my router. My other computers run the intenet at the same speeds they always have, just not this one. I now have this computer hooked up VIA cable to the router just to make sure it isn't a wireless problem and it still is slow.

I have IE, Opera, Firefox and chrome. All went from very fast to very slow when whatever is wrong went wrong.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Do you have alot of add-ons and tools bars installed on all browsers? if so try uninstalling some of them. Add-ons and toolsbars use extra RAM if using too much this can cause slower page loads.
