Before burning, and potentially wasting a disc, *I* check the downloaded
ISO against the checksum.  After that check, I move onto the next step
(burning the disc, or simply using that file on the hard drive).

Before *you* download another four gigs, do that check, and see if what
you've downloaded is fine.  If so, it's burning that you need to
concentrate on, and you can use what you've already downloaded, getting
it again is just going to be a waste.  If not, then it's downloading
issues that you need to resolve.
