Description

USBWriter is tiny Windows tool that lets you write an image file directly to an USB drive. It requires no installation and depends on no bloated framework, it's just a little program that you may put on your desktop.

This tool is useful to create a bootable USB disk from a Linux Live CD image file such as Ubuntu, Fedora, Gentoo or ArchLinux.

Please read the wiki in case of issues, every possible error or misbehavior is explained.

    Used it and lost my hdd partition table. Examing my partition table found out, that usbwriter wrote the image to the first sectors of my hdd. Looked at source and found out the check for removable device is done upon choosing drive in dialog and not before writing. The check for removable media should be added to MainDlgWrite.c in ThreadRoutine() before opening device. (My scenario: Choosed drive in dialog, removed device, entered again and pressed write....)

    Great app, but it ruined my USB drive. The drive won't register on the PC and the volume size has gone from 16 GB to 31 MB.

    Very simple, small little application with no extra stuff forcing you to download other crap. Even fixing the USB as FAT32 after using as bootable device is easy with another application. 10/5 Awesome application!
