Did you try some other dd/usb-port/usb-cable ? I had the same problem with my old DD. It was not getting enough power from my usb cable. It connected without problem and disconnected when I tried to use it. Maybe you have the same problem.

I've finally found the solution. The following line in my configuration file /etc/modprobe.d/gm12u320.conf was blocking the way, probably preventing the usb-storage driver from loading: install usb-storage /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install gm12u320 && /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install usb-storage

the dd command can pipe its output do several devices in one run through tee like discribed here: https://joshhead.wordpress.com/2011/08/04/multiple-output-files-with-dd-utility/ TLDR!: sudo su dd if=inputfileimage.bin | tee >(dd of=/dev/sdc) | dd of=/dev/sdh would write the file "inputfileimage.bin" to the devices sdc and sdh in a root console... ...

Go to Device -> Create Partition Table. If it asks you which type, use the default (MS-DOS). That will destroy the data on the USB drive. Then you should be able to create new partitions.

Here's your problem: fdisk -l /dev/sdd1 You've told fdisk to read the contents of /dev/sdd1 and treat it as a partition table; however, /dev/sdd1 is itself a partition! Chances are you should have specified /dev/sdd, not /dev/sdd1. (It is legal to put a partition table on a partition, but this is normally done only for certain specialized cases, such as ...

Problem is that the new image isn't meant to be used with unetbootin or any of the normal USB creators. Just use dd like: dd if=ubuntu-14.04.2-server-amd64.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=16M (obviously, replace /dev/sdb with the path to your USB key, but don't use any partitions (i.e. don't use /dev/sdb1, /dev/sdb2, etc -- just the whole device)

The disc inserted is not readable by this computer As long as you followed the above burning a DVD on OS X, then this is normal. OS X doesn't recognize the bootable Ubuntu Live disk, but you still should be able to 'option boot' and select the live disk from there (it will probably be listed as 'EFI' or 'Windows').
