    Question live usb ubuntu problem

    i am using ubuntu 10.04 live usb and i have a question. when i use startup disk creator, it only lets me create a bootable usb using a disk as the image source. i try to select an .iso image from my harddrive or flashdrive, and it doesn't let me. anyone know how i can do this?

    When usb-creator is open, there should be a button that says "other", try clicking this.

    that's what i was using. or trying. i click on it, the window opens, i find my iso, click on the iso, and then the window closes and my iso doesn't show up in the source box. it acts like i didn't even chose one.

    The ubuntu usb startup disk creator will only work with (*)ubuntu.iso files, not for other distros.

    Are you trying to make a live USB of some other distro eg Fedora, Suse? If so use unetbootin instead.

    Is it an Ubuntu iso file? usb-creator only works with buntu iso's.

    unetbootin should be used if you're using a distro or OS other than 'buntu
    I had to do it.
