I would like to burn an ISO file to a USB flash drive.

When I bring up ImgBurn I am getting an error about the CD drive.  I don't have a CD drive attached to this Laptop.

In the Destination It's showing "No devices detected".  I do have the USB flash drive plugged in and I can view it via Explorer in Win7.


How can I get ImgBurn to recognize it as a Destination?

I 09:16:12 ImgBurn Version started!
I 09:16:12 Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate Edition (6.1, Build 7601 : Service Pack 1)
I 09:16:12 Total Physical Memory: 2,604,856 KiB  -  Available: 844,552 KiB

The USB flash drive is G:



Thank you,

You can't 'burn' an ISO file to a USB flash drive. A flash drive isn't an optical drive which is the only thing imgburn works with. Just use build mode to create the ISO (files & folders to ISO), then use Windows explorer to copy the ISO to the flash drive.

Thank you for the reply.


If I follow your instructions it won't be bootable.

You'll have to find another tool for the job. ImgBurn isn't what you need.
Please don't PM me with questions that should be posted in the forum. I won't reply - Especially if you have post count of 0!!!

Replies to posts belong in the forum where everyone can read them. Please don't PM them.

In fact, don't PM me at all unless it's something I've asked to be told about!

Before asking questions, search the forum to see if someone else already has.

Use the FAQ and Guides forums to your advantage. I don't want to have to tell you to read them!
