I have got Ubuntu 13.10 installed. I wanted to create a bootable USB-Stick with Ubuntu Gnome with the usb-creator. I already had 4 ISOs loaded into usb-creator but now it does not let me add further ISOs.

I don't get this, why do you need more than 1 ISO file to create a bootable USB stick? What OS are you trying to load on the USB stick? – i08in Apr 14 '14 at 17:28
No I already created several usb sticks with this tool but now I wanted to try Ubuntu Gnome but I am not able to add any new images. – Sebi55 Apr 14 '14 at 17:32
What is the error message you get when you start usb-creator-gtk from the terminal? – i08in Apr 14 '14 at 17:34
I do not get any error it just launches normally. – Sebi55 Apr 14 '14 at 17:35
It seems like you are not using an ubuntu ISO are you? – i08in Apr 14 '14 at 17:42

The startup disk creator can only be used to make bootable disk for Ubuntu. This is not explicitly shown as an error when you select the ISO but that is the reason why you don't see the ISO listed in the table.

You need to use alterative softwares like unetbootin to make bootable disks for other OS's. To install unetbootin, open a terminal(Ctrl+Alt+t) and type the following:

sudo apt-get install unetbootin

or you can install it from the software center by searching for "unetbootin".
