Image Writer recursive FS? (solved sort of)

Postby jjaythomas on Thu Nov 15, 2012 8:51 am

Have recently had to burn a ISO to a USB.
Tried using Image writer from a fresh LMDE-Xfce 64bit install. (pretty sure worked before).
burn cant boot USB stick :cry:
Gparted says 'recursive FS on disk. Couldn't recover 'device partion table' using gparted on LMDE, could from other Distro! :?

Not the ISO image, I burned CD on LMDE fine.
Not the USB stick I burned using unetbootin on another computer (will not correct using Unetbootin on LMDE)
Computrer fine can use Unetbotin and (Ubuntu) 'startup disc creator' on this computer outside LMDE.

**Edit** forgot to say this is a LMDE-Xfce 64bit
Noticed on Grub screen now had option 'memory test + experimental multi-boot' :?:

Tried the fix effecting Mint14RC new ISO's

Unetbootin now working again. Image writer still gives corrupted USB! :cry:

Is image writer 32bit program or updated recently?

P.S. found out (googling ect) gparted will only fully recreate the 'device partion table' from a live CD (clonzilla,system rescue disk, parted magic ect) :wink:
