Running UNetBootin, the copying runs for only a couple seconds.
I have been able to run UNetBootin, with the device name shown in USB drive, and with the ISO selected by browsing my computer (I am trying to make a bootable USB flash drive with Mint 11 lxde so I can replace my linpus with it.) But when I run it copying only lasts a couple seconds and the stick afterwards only has a few very small files in it.
Previously at this same juncture I got a long copying process--"never ending" in fact--and all the files went somewhere onto my hard drive, which became completely full with it. I got advice and was able to delete the files without knowing where they were--the command I was given worked with the address of the device where I had instructed unetbootin to put the ISO, rather than an address within my hard drive. Later, I tried again and the file went into my mnt directory. I made the error of deleting the file there and this action also deleted the home directory in its own place under root. Fortunately I have a backup on another stick that's fairly uptodate.
So I don't want to repeat copying the file back onto my hard drive, but need to get it onto the stick.
The unetbootin file and the mint file are now both located directly under the home directory. The address for unetbootin is /home/user/unetbootin-linux-555.
Any suggestions or tips?
