Running Ubuntu 12.04 (I think!) – what is the best software for burning an .ISO file to USB stick?

    Undoubtly the best. Creates multi bootable usb for linux, windows and so much more. Once you get set up, what I mean by that is you get your iso's downloaded, from within the software itself your options are limited only to your imagination. If you have a iso that isn't supported you can change the name to one that is an still run it. Helix is a forsenic software that I like but isn't supported by unebootin. I just rename the iso to one that is a wahla.

    Great answers from Tim & Hovsep. Personally, I like YUMI the best. It allows you to create multiple bootable systems on an ordinary (FAT32) USB drive and continue to use the drive for storage purposes. It works fine with Ubuntu and many other systems as well. Best of all worlds really.

    Personally, I'd always recommend Unetbootin. It does much of the hard work for you, even offering to download many Linux distributions and burn them straight to USB once the download completes.

    It's free, works for Linux (with Ubuntu binaries available) as well as Mac and Windows PCs.

      Thanks Tim and the other guys that provided the information for my use. It is great having this resource available and I recommend it to all "New" Linux users.
