So what you are saying is that using "dd" is not a really good system
to make the usb stick?|
If I have an image file of 200MB, then...
- If I have stick A which is 512MB, and 100% fine, no bad sectors, it
- If I have same stick B, but a few bad sectors => the image will
not work ok?
=> is the solution to make stick B work: => format stick B
manually, install the syslinux bootloader and copy the files to it? Is
that a better system?

I am using fat32 as a resulting binary image filesystem. My question
is: If I copy the binary.img image to different types of sticks(512MB,
1GB, 2GB,...) and different brands, using "dd", will there ever be a
problem with sector sizes or something like that? Maybe when writing on
the disk again? I am not saying I have this particular problem, but I'm
if you dumped the image onto a smaller sized media than the original,
lost of data is possible. If the intended destination is having a bad
sector, the process will ended up prematurely.
Thanks for any help,
