Where did you download RaspBMC from? If you've not tried it already, try the official download from the RaspBMC site. It's never failed me yet...

http://www.raspbmc.com/download/
Pi2B Mini-PC/Media Centre: ARM=1GHz (+3), Core=500MHz, v3d=500MHz, h264=333MHz, RAM=DDR2-1200 (+6/+4/+4+schmoo). Sandisk Ultra HC-I 32GB microSD card on '50=100' OCed slot (42MB/s read) running Raspbian/KODI16, Seagate 3.5" 1.5TB HDD mass storage.

You can also install Raspbmc via NOOBS.

Can you be *very* specific about which file(s) you are talking about. Provide a link.

Well lol I have loaded every thing I can for this program and all I can think is when it said add programs ,it doesn't begin to try so maybe I am supposed to look for them ,it then said get more ,I think its time to give up on this until I lean a little more which is a shame because it looks really good but a little beyond me ,but thanks very much for all the help ,Brian :) :)

Go with NOOBS/RaspBMC it's two clicks of the mouse to get that running.

I've had the same trouble as Brian more than once installing RaspBMC via NOOBS, but I've no idea why. That's why I suggested using the genuine RaspBMC live installer as recommended by the author. I've never had a problem with it.

Hey Dougie I always grateful to you my friend always quick to help out and I am always very grateful ,but I lost count of times I tried the easy noobs way but it totally failed every single time and I still don't know why lol but once GTR2Fan said he had the same problem a few times and ended up in a mess like myself but sorted it by using the
RaspBMC live installer and it worked ,I just knew I had to have a try and it did indeed work so all's well that ends well ,keep the good work up my friend you and GTR2Fan will have your work out with folk like me lol take care Brian :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

You're most welcome, Brian. I have no idea why this problem occurs for some people (myself included), but I'm very glad the official installer got you there. Enjoy! :)
