Sounds like it might be timing out

I use that method on SoftSeller.com, and I know some of the users there have files a couple hundred MBs that can take hours to download. On that Win2000 server, as long as the CGI is sending data, the request doesn't time out. But if you can only download 14 MB, consistently, it sounds like the server might be timing out the request (the default setting is usually 60 seconds). Even if that is the problem, I'm not sure if there's a separate option for allowing CGIs to continue if they are outputting data, or if the only thing you can do is to increase the timeout, but I'd try just increasing the timeout just to see if that is the problem.
