    I downloaded the free trial version of Adobe InDesign CS3 from Adobe's website and after a long, 800MB download, I get this error whenever I try to open the file.

    ----------------------------------------------------
    The following disk images failed to import:

    Image: ADBEIDSNCS3_WWE.dmg
    Reason: codec overrun

    ----------------------------------------------------

    Any ideas? I searched the forums through the old codec overrun threads but all I found was information saying that the file is corrupted. Seeing as it's a very popular download from Adobe, I can't see why this would be the case.

    It's not very popular but it's industry standard...

    Solution...

    When it is verifying ... click SKIP. It mounts right away.

    True...

    True but sometimes the installer fails and the window is too fast for me anyway...

    A Solution to Codec Overrun

    Greetings all. A solution to the codec overrun problem is to boot from Linux (I used Mepis 7.0 and the Konqueror Browser and booted on the PeeSea). I then downloaded the same .dmgs that wouldn't load and they worked fine! I had previously downloaded the same files with different Browsers on the PeeSea but had mounting problems on the Mac.

    I don't think the problem is the Mac itself but the way in which the data it downloaded/assembled on the Hard drive. I have not been using the Mac for downloading.

    I hope this helps you as it as for me. :D
