Probably the .img is a disk image, not a partition image.
If you run "file binary.img", it will probably report
binary.img: x86 boot sector, partition 1: [...]
If this is an image you downloaded, BEFORE you do anything else, you
should check that it downloaded successfully (by running md5sum on the
file and comparing it to the md5sum listed on the site).

Perhaps the image-building process has changed, and the first partition
is no longer guaranteed to begin at the 512th byte.

Use "fdisk -l binary.img" to inspect it and find out what the offset

USB mass storage devices usually use the same filesystems as normal hard
disks, e.g. ext3. They may have a partition table (hence -ooffset=N).
"usbfs" is doubtless some specialized filesystem which has nothing to do
with your current goal. I'd check, but it doesn't seem to be part of
the current Linux kernel.
