I still don't know the difference between them. Can you give me more details or a clearer explanation?

It's really not that difficult...

A download is an ISO file that has been downloaded from the internet. That's why it is called "download", because it has been "downloaded" from some site like microsoft.com or other.

The other (without the "download" text) contains ISO files that were created from a physical disc. Those shiny round 12cm things that you can put into your CD/DVD drive (if your computer still has one). An actual physical item.
I upload stuff to archive.org from time to time. See here for everything that doesn't fit BA
