Re: Problems with USB sticks, for ISO purposes

I haven't tried etcher yet, but I'm now thinking the drive isn't the problem. I think I've done something to my USB connectivity on the computer. I have another USB drive that I wanted to access a file from. It wasn't visible to Thunar. There are a lot of loops in /dev....is that a problem?

Maybe, maybe not. /dev/loop[0-7] exist whenever the loop module is loaded, even though there is no active loop device.
Are there active loop devices ?
Code: Select all
losetup -l

If that code is supposed to show active loop devices, no.... nothing was shown. I just got the command prompt.

(Solved) Re: Problems with USB sticks, for ISO purposes

Well I "fixed" it by rebooting the computer. I don't know what happened, but it works now. I've written the ISO to one of the USB sticks, and the second seems to be getting written to, also (it's still going).

I don't like rebooting as a fix, but I didn't know what else to do.
