Downloaded File Corruption - Repeatable Problem
With Desktop version 3150 RC2 installed, any file downloaded while using the Ethernet port on a dual core 1.66 Ghz Mac Mini with 1 GB memory under OS X 10.4.8 with all the latest patches and the latest firmware release is corrupted. A .DMG file will refuse to mount with an error of "codec overrun". Un-installing the Desktop software resolves the problem until it is re-installed again. The same file downloaded again with Desktop removed from the system opens normally. I've tried several different DMG files of various sizes and the problem remains the same.
Files downloaded with Windows XP running under Desktop are fine. This is a repeatable problem and should surface when any DMG file is downloaded under OS X with the Desktop software installed. I'm not certain if the Airport connection is effected since I use only the standard Ethernet port for my network connection.
Is anyone else having this problem and is there a resolution? I've had this same problem since first official release of the Desktop software.
