Re: dd problem, no space left
Can we take a close look at the devices as i'm surprised that copying sdb to sdc did not work if they are the same size.
Plug both devices in and then type..
Post the results back here.
sudo lshw -short | grep "sd[bc]"
EDIT: And are you sure they are not copying correctly as i can get that error when i use gddresuce to wipe a pen drive.
I.E this will return the same 'out of space' error.
sudo ddrescue /dev/zero /dev/sdb
