After re-installation of Natty, I had lost ability to create bootable USB drive with Startup Disk Creator.

When I tried to add an .iso image into (through the button Other), nothing happend.

Disk Creator won't add the source CD image.

Startup Disk Creator Image

I have tried to re-install Startup Disk Creator, but it doesn't help.

Use Unetbootin. – Uri Herrera Sep 30 '11 at 21:20
Try launching the USB Creator from the Terminal - the command is 'usb-creator-gtk' - that might provide some useful output. – mikewhatever Oct 1 '11 at 1:53
after launching from Terminal I've got the following output : isoinfo: Unable to find Joliet SVD – Justas Oct 1 '11 at 20:53

I have read that a 2GB flash drive is now minimum for a Live install. I have not confirmed this.

Alternatly you can boot the 712 MB Ubuntu iso image using grub2. MultiBootUSB has script for doing this.

I am having the same problem. Min 2GB flash drive is not the issue; I am using 8GB flash drive – Hussain Tamboli Oct 12 '13 at 11:01
