I want to install usb-imagewriter to clone an SD card that I have. I didn't find USBWriter in the Software Center. Is there any link to download it please?

  • USBWriter is Windows-only. – Aibara Jul 23 '15 at 4:07

You don't need special software for cloning SD.

Just use dd command.

For example,

dd if=/dev/sdcard1 of=/dev/sdcard2

Here if is the source SD where you clone from, of is the destination SD, where you clone to.
