The path to your device node appears to contain unicode. Is that an e-mail artifact, or did you feed a unicode path to dd? This is why I said "paste your console session into a reply" -- so we can verify the command that was actually run.

# fdisk -l /dev/sdc
fdisk: cannot open /dev/sdc: No medium found

root@audio2:/home/martin# ls /dev/sdc

Plain 'ls' isn't very useful.  The -l switch provides more information.

Please unplug all extraneous USB devices, leave the Kingston drive plugged in, run the following commands, and paste your console session into a reply:

# ls -l /dev/sdc

# lsusb

What happens if you connect the Kingston drive into a Windows machine?
