    Try mkusb for this purpose. Once installed from the PPA, it is easy because there is a menu option for it "restore to a Standard storage device". If mkusb fails, there is probably a hardware error (something wrong with the USB pendrive, or if you are lucky, some confusion, that you can fix). See this link if that happens.

    What are you trying to do? Make an install media? Make a data stick that is readable in both Windows and Ubuntu?... We can only guess.
