    This will create an image of USB (.img actual file type) and not standard ISO9660 format iso file, you are just changing the extension name, and the size of the output file is equal to the size of the input USB drive, ie: if there is 300MB of content in the 2GB USB drive, then the output file is 2GB only!.

    I use “cp file.iso /dev/sdx” :-)

    Wanted to know how to make a USB bootable from a bootable ISO image that is booted without any problem using vmware/virtualbox.

    When I put this ISO image on USB stick it doesn’t boot at all. I tried many programs, many techniques and none of them worked.
