I have Sandisk 16 GB and 32 GB Pendrives. I use Win32DiskImager and UniversalUSBInstaller and lili etc for each one 16 and 32 GB pen drives. For 16 GB is working successfully but 32 GB it says unable to find a medium containing a live file system. And this is not happening with me but also to my friends having 32 GB USB. Why is this happening and what is the solution?

  • It's much easier to make a live USB from an existing Ubuntu install. Do you have access to a Linux box? – You'reAGitForNotUsingGit Jul 20 '16 at 16:26

  • I recommend using Rufus: rufus.akeo.ie In some cases it will fix and configure everything for you. – Adriaan Jul 20 '16 at 18:22

    rufus is crap for linux. It is good for windows – Brij Raj Kishore Jul 20 '16 at 18:46

Have you tried this method? You also may need to format the usb drive as bootable first, use format fs=fat32 To answer your secondary question above, 'Linux box' is a computer with Linux already running
