So what I'm trying to do is using gparted to create two partitions on my 32 GB USB stick. I want to create an Ubuntu ISO on the first partition and on the second I want to put some media files and various other files.

I've tried to do this before but when I tried to mount the second partition (which contains other data) I got an error message saying Ubuntu failed to mount as it can't read the second partition.


There's no need to partition your USB drive if you simply want some backed up files on the live cd. Just make a new folder called "backup" or "media" and put your files in it. Install like you normally would and when the installation is done, copy the folder onto your newly installed system.
