I encountered this same problem today.
I have created fedora live usb sticks with the same installation of fedora liveUSBcreator successfully before.
I turned to the method of fedora liveUSBcreator after an failed attempt to
follow the method described at openSUSE
# dd if=XXX.XXX of=/dev/sdX bs=4M;sync
followed by a script to create one more partion on the usb stick.
I am wondering if the openSUSE Live iso is different somehow from the fedora live iso?
