I am getting either error 5 or error 1117 on trying to write a Raspbian OS image for a Raspberry Pi. I have run with administrator privileges and without. I have tried inserting the reader with and without card before and after starting the software. Nothing seems to make any difference. The cards are all new and I have ordered a new reader just in case. Advice please on course of action, my RPi is dead in the water without an OS!

The image is downloadable from the Raspberry Pi Foundation website
