600mins? wow you must have something taking all the bandwidth making the timer unreliable.
It takes about 1-2mins for me on a 768 adsl.

Just tried again since we got a new patch about 5mins ago

downloading media took 1min 20 secs on a 768 adsl
installing media less than a minute on a 850mhz laptop

If you're still going on those 200mins and have been before the server was taken down and a new patch uploaded, you might want to start over, since any new patch means doing it all over again like I just did.

A 56k takes a good while to download everything. It takes really long if you are sending any other information back and forth (like data-intensive browsing while downloading) or if you just have a bad connection.

The game runs fine on 56k, it just takes about an hour or two to get it loaded onto your machine the first time.
