F17 dvd iso to usb

Using livecd-iso-to-disk to copy dvd iso to usb. Encountered thie error:

The media check is complete, the result is: FAIL.

It is not recommended to use this media.
Are you SURE you want to continue?
Press Enter to continue or ctrl-c to abort

I used to know a command that formatted the flash drive, reset the mbr, and copied the iso to usb? at least I think I did.

Does anybody have that command handy? or am I nuckin futs

Hi Hewjr100,

The media check checks the checksum of the iso. The fail message means the iso does not match the checksum so you should not use that iso and need to download it again.

The command you are looking for is:
Code:
livecd-iso-to-disk --format --reset-mbr /path_to_iso/some.iso /dev/usb-device-location
Hope this helps,
