A while back I downloaded the Ubuntu 13.10 iso and used Linux Mint to make an install disc. Ubuntu 14 came out, though, and I want to create multiple OS installers on that flash drive. In Windows, when I plug it in, there are two drives. One (a few megs) asks me to format it, and the other says to insert a disc. In Ubuntu, it says it is HPFS/Secure NTFS format, and won't mount it.

This is the output:
