Anyone else finding Live USB Creator not working?


If your USB stick is bad, it won't work. I also found out that if the iso is at a NTFS file system it won't work as well, must be at ext partition (the iso file).

Also couldn't get Live USB Creator  to work.  Then used K3b & a blank dvd.

WoeUSB had no issues with a iso of that "other'' OS on the same usb......many thanks for that!


Please provide an output from the command:
remsu sparky-live-usb-creator
or (if the first failed):
sudo sparky-live-usb-creator

I see the problem now "/home/wombat/Downloads/sparkylinux-5.3-x86_64-multimedia': No such file or directory"

The file name is actually ''sparkylinux-5.3-x86_64-multimedia(1)' ....I cancelled the original download for a faster source. Thus the (1) !

Renamed the iso file to "sparkylinux-5.3-x86_64-multimedia" and it worked......thanks!!

K3b didn't have the same problem with the added (1)
