[SOLVED] I'm at a total loss, ISO will not go to USB

SOLVED:  My OOPS!

Trying to burn the lithium ISO to a USB stick.

a17d0364d55352487f4d08d5dc1ad7f789931e911cb4cb2c82cb5255c1ed1d23
   $ sha256sum /media/10/ISOs/BL/lithium-3-amd64.hybrid.iso
a17d0364d55352487f4d08d5dc1ad7f789931e911cb4cb2c82cb5255c1ed1d23

YUP, it's good

dd if=<file> of=<device> bs=4M; sync

The USB stick was wiped and formatted Fat32 with gparted

 10 Jan 22 @ 18:31:19 ~
   $ sudo ls -l /dev/disk/by-id/*usb*
[sudo] password for sector11: 
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Jan 10 18:15 /dev/disk/by-id/usb-SanDisk_Cruzer_Edge_200608761118FA825D92-0:0 -> ../../sdb
 
 10 Jan 22 @ 18:34:48 /media/10/ISOs/BL
   $ dd if=lithium-3-amd64.hybrid.iso of=sdb bs=4M; sync
312+1 records in

 10 Jan 22 @ 18:35:01 /media/10/ISOs/BL
   $ 

and the stick is empty!

cp lithium-3-amd64.hybrid.iso sdb

and the stick is empty!

Any help appreciated.

I think you need, of=/dev/sdb, as the path.

Re: [SOLVED] I'm at a total loss, ISO will not go to USB

Did some checking and saw one sample with that so:

 10 Jan 22 @ 19:03:59 ~
   $ cd /media/10/ISOs/BL/
 
 10 Jan 22 @ 19:04:40 /media/10/ISOs/BL
   $ ls

 10 Jan 22 @ 19:04:45 /media/10/ISOs/BL
   $ dd if=lithium-3-amd64.hybrid.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=4M status=progress; sync
dd: failed to open '/dev/sdb': Permission denied

Re: [SOLVED] I'm at a total loss, ISO will not go to USB

10 Jan 22 @ 19:04:40 /media/10/ISOs/BL
   $ ls
lithium-3-amd64.hybrid.iso  lithium-3-amd64.hybrid.iso.sig  lithium-3.sha256sums.txt  sdb

Why is sdb showing as a directory in they directory where you downloaded the ISOs?

You don't mount the thumb drive after formatting it fat32 in order to burn the iso with dd. Make sure it's not mounted.

More likely the thumb drive may need to be tossed. How old is it? You have another, fairly new one, you can try?

Re: [SOLVED] I'm at a total loss, ISO will not go to USB

I still don't recall needing to be root with BL ...
{sigh}

Maybe it's my forgetter.

Re: [SOLVED] I'm at a total loss, ISO will not go to USB

I don't remember when it was, but I do remember suddenly needing to use sudo after an upgrade, quite a while ago.

In principle, this is wrong.  wink

The dd command destroys ALL data of the medium to which it is applied! So the FAT32 file system will be destroyed as well. That is why it is so dangerous and the user is always asked to look EXACTLY.

The dd command is used to write to a USB stick. With it one brings e.g. a hybrid ISO on the stick. Hybrid means, start ability.

ISO's have a RAW format, because of the data compression.
This format cannot be made visible with a file manager.
Only if I use the following procedure, I can see the content of the ISO with the file manager.

# mkdir /mnt/disk
# mount -o loop /media/S11/lithium-3-amd64.hybrid.iso /mnt/disk

leave

# umount /mnt/disk

I did use sudo ... said it copied in 7.5 seconds .. but not there see earlier post, quoted for TLDR:

 10 Jan 22 @ 19:05:12 /media/10/ISOs/BL
   $ sudo dd if=lithium-3-amd64.hybrid.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=4M status=progress; sync

OUCH:  maybe it did:

 11 Jan 22 @ 09:26:21 ~
   $ c 173*7.57966
