I downloaded Ubuntu Desktop 12.04 LTS 32-bit. Used the Universal USB Installer, but it wouldnt recognize the file. It was a clean download and I'm quite sure that its not damaged. Any suggestion or any other software you'd recommend?

Its not recognizing the ISO? What OS are using to create the USB? –  Mitch Jul 5 '12 at 7:27

Try Unetbootin , also verify the md5sum of ISO before using using it. –  tijybba Jul 5 '12 at 7:52
    
Did you download the latest version of Universal USB installer‌​. Because if you have an older version, it will not recognize the newer iso. –  Anwar Shah Jul 5 '12 at 9:28

Try Unetbootin ,select the appropriate installer file based on your Current OS and also verify the md5sum of ISO before using it.

A suggestion , see screenshot

enter image description here

  1. Don't select the first option Distribution , because it does not lists the current Ubuntu Precise Pangolin 12.04 edition. So rather ,
  2. Select the Diskimage option , then Browse to the location of the Ubuntu ISO image from the .... button.
  3. IMPORTANT option , select the Type and Drive Option Very Carefully to avoid data loss . If it is Usb Drive , most probably will be sdbX , sdcX, do a cross check and Proceed with OK option.

I faced the same problem in my windows 7. It doesn't recognize not only ubuntu iso but also all other ISO I have.

I would recomend, LILI.

From here you can get it.
