    Burn OS image on USB stick

    Hi all,

    I forgot which application shall I run burning an OS image on USB
    Code:
    "Make Startup Disk" ???
    Activities -> startup up

    instead of running following command on Terminal
    Code:
    sudo dd bz=4M if=/home/username/Downloads/2012-10-28-wheezy-raspbian.img of=/dev/sdc
    I'm prepared to burn Raspberry-stretch image on a SD card which has been plugged into USB port. Then the SD card can be booted on Raspberry Pi 3

    Please advise. Thanks

    I would suggest that mkusb is the best way forward.

    I think most users are now using it; I certainly haven't used anything else for a long time.

    Lot of thanks for your advice.

    usb-creator-gtk is built-in

    It can be started by;
    Activities -> startup disk

    as mentioned on my original posting.
