I'm trying to create a bootable Ubuntu disk using Startup Disk utility, but when I try to erase the USB memory, this appears:

org.freedesktop.DBus.Python.GLib.Error: Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/dbus/service.py", line 707, in _message_cb
    retval = candidate_method(self, *args, **keywords)
  File "/usr/share/usb-creator/usb-creator-helper", line 287, in Format
    partition = table.call_create_partition_sync(0, size, '0x0c', '', no_options, None)
GLib.Error: udisks-error-quark: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.UDisks2.Error.Failed: Error wiping newly created partition /dev/sdd1: Command-line `wipefs -a "/dev/sdd1"' exited with non-zero exit status 1: wipefs: error: /dev/sdd1: probing initialization failed: No such file or directory
  • It is not. I've tryied to format on 2 separated drives and still nothing – Gino Marín León Apr 16 '16 at 1:02

The Startup Disk Creator tool is known to having some issues to create the USB properly.
Instead use the Disks tool (gnome-disk-utility) to create the Ubuntu installation media.

Open Disks and select Restore Disk Image from the menu on the top right of the application.
Choose the Ubuntu installation ISO file and the USB drive to write it to and then start restoring.
