    Talking Re: Need Help! Convert LiveCD to LiveUSB [ Solved !]

    Thankyou for reply.
    I just use very simple command : dd , and make it.

    dd if=/path/openSUSE-11.1-KDE4-Reloaded-LiveCD.x86_64-4.3.1-Build4.1.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=4M

    the iso image downloaded from here:
    openSUSE News openSUSE 11.1 KDE4 Reloaded with Online Updates and KDE 4.3.1

    Using dd in windows
    you should take care about which device is like the "/dev/sdb' in linux instead of "/dev/sdb1"

    so, usually, we "dd if=/path/file of=\\?\Device\DRx bs=4M" the x here for 0 1 2 or 3

    Before you do dd operation, you have to use diskpart to clean the whole usb drive
    diskpart>list disk
    for example, the disk 3 is your usb drive
    diskpart>select disk 3
    diskpart>clean
    then go to dd ~ good luck

    ofcourse.if you got GUI tool, thaz better.
