having more problems with dd command again..

Post by trippin »

i had problems before creating a live kali usb. i got it to work but i had to use the usb so i deleted it. today i downloaded a gentoo iso and i am looking for help creating a live usb for both. ill provide the things iv tried and the output below.

Kali

after i do the sudo fdisk -l part i do: sudo dd if=kali-linux-1.1.0a-amd64.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=512k

and the output is:

dd: failed to open ‘/dev/sdb’: No medium found

Gentoo

sudo dd if=admincd-amd64-20150730.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=512k

and the output is:

dd: failed to open ‘admincd-amd64-20150730.iso’: No such file or directory
