    burn dvd iso to usb?

    Am running Ubuntu 13.10 and trying to burn a dvd iso (opensuse dvd iso) to a usb. However have not been able to. Maybe I am typing in something wrong?

    Welcome to the Ubuntu Forums

    I think the problem is that you try to flash the iso file to the first partition of the USB drive. Instead you should flash it to the drive itself

    /dev/sdb (not /dev/sdb1)
    The procedure with dd is risky, so I recommend that you use the shell-script mkusb to reduce the risk and increase the chance to succeed. See this link

    Hi, you can use the Startup Disc Creator to make bootable usb from .iso file.
