What program were you using to download the file, Safari, Firefox, Miro, xTorrent? Was this an OS upgrade, a movie file, an automatic software update, etc?
The more info you can provide, the better help we can be.

I was using safari to download the update for iPhoto suggested by Apple. I paused and then restarted the download a few times and it restarted fine then it suddenly decided to start again.

Is this download from the Apps Store or through Software Update?
If this is from the Apps Store, then you're using an Intel-based Mac, and this forum is dedicated for pre-Intel based Macs, so you might get more responses in the Intel-Based Mac forum, here:
Or the Apps Store forum, here:
If you're not using the Apps Store:
Maybe there was a Internet conncection error, I don't know. I've no personal experience with pausing and resuming downloads. I have had problems where downloads seemed to stop half-way through, so I quit the download, and restarted it fresh on my own.
I've heard some people say they have better luck using Firefox with a download manager or Chrome when downloading large files.
Sorry, I'm not more help.
