Re: iso disc

This is not the right list to ask; debian-user would be more appropriate
in future.  But see below.

You will be unable to download files larger than about 4 GiB if either:

- The download directory is on a FAT filesystem (which is the usual
filesystem on removable flash cards and sticks).
- The download program uses 32-bit file sizes.  I don't know which
common programs still have this problem.

(The first DVD image is deliberately limited to be less than 4 GB so
that it can be written to a 4 GB flash card.  This also happens to avoid
problems with 4 GiB limits.)

The program is absolutely right; therefore, the computer must be wrong.
