I'm using usb-creator-gtk to create a bootable USB with Ubuntu 11.04. The USB device is a SanDisk Cruzer 4 GB, and I have already used u3-tool to remove the U3 cruft that comes with SanDisk devices, and completely wiped the USB stick.
When I run the command:
ely@AMDESK:~$ usb-creator-gtk -i /home/ely/Downloads/ubuntu-11.04-desktop-i386.iso
the usual GUI pops up. I select the 4.0 GB USB filesystem and click "create." At this point, a popup window appears that says "Installing" with a progress bar. It steadily moves to the 38% complete mark and then just freezes. If I force-quit the process, re-wipe the USB drive and re-try, I get the exact same error.
Why does usb-creator-gtk just hang with no information? How can I prevent it from freezing so I can finish the bootable drive creation process?
