It is strange....
I attempted to see if i can mimic the action by making a dummy ISO and
downloading it to see if whatever makes the (2).iso actually changed the
data in the .iso . It would appear there is some coding that makes
duplicate copies NOT overwrite the original, and change the name
instead. This is NOT typical download behavior....the default is to
always overwrite, rename, or cancel. What ever is causing the files to
rename themselves is probably also changing the md5sum.
