    Cannot burn USB?

    Using Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool, I am unable to make a bootable USB, getting an error that the ISO is not a valid ISO file. Yet this file was able to burn a bootable DVD fine.

    Is there a logical reason for this?

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    Bruce,

    I d/l IMGBurn, but I see no option to burn a bootable USB...only a DVD.

    Reading through Bruce's link, you only use Imgburn to create and save the modified file and then you can use the Windows USB/DVD tool to create the bootable USB.

    Well now I am thoroughly depressed. Using ImgBurn, I tried to create a boot USb -- one that I had been using as a Macrium Reflect backup boot (2nd copy), and it either tells me it cannot write the files, or does so, but then does not run.

    I know then burner works, because I tested it post-issues. I know the USB is good, because it reads and writes -- post-issue.

    What I do not understand is why there is an issue at all, since I have been using the Windows program for this without issue or error; I have created a bootable DVD from the ISO in question without error.

    Ah me....

    You could try downloading the ISO again if you have the bandwidth and try that with the Windows USB/DVD burner program.

    Have you formatted the USB to NTFS - it won't affect its readable attributes if you intend to keep it as a Win 10 bootable, but with subsequent updates, that ISO can become outdated.
