    The reasons could be many:

    • Incomplete downloaded file
    • Corrupted file system
    • File is not designed for your version of Windows
    • Improper configurations of Integrated Device Electronics (IDE) controller
    • Defective media
    • An unregistered file type association
    • Hardware incompatibility
    • Malware infection.
