Hi, I just installed korora which is a nice distribution based on fedora. I downloaded some others linux distros to test them with my usb (live). I did it until this problem happend, I don't know why. The issue is: The operating system detects my usb nevertheless fedora live usb creator and unetbooting doesn't detect it (also virtualbox)

USB detected img : See 4gb drive

USB is not detected img :

Thanks in advance

Have you tried to first unmount the usb (not completely remove it or eject it, but unmount) and try again with such programs ? Virtualbox is a special case where you have to have installed the Extension Pack in order for USBs to be recognized and work properly. Also, I would try with an Official Fedora (or Spin) distribution. Better would be to report this problem in Korora's support desk.

Regards.

Thanks for your reply, but I tried it before. When I downloaded Korora, I wanted to try something else so I downloaded lubuntu. And it's worked perfectly before, I used fedora live linux ,unetbooting before and it worked!

Virtualbox is a special case where you have to have installed the VirtualBox Extension Pack in order for USBs to be recognized and work properly.

You have to know that unetbootin is not recommended anymore. It is (almost) deprecated and creates various problems especially on UEFI systems.

Please read on Wiki as of how to create a Fedora Live USB:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to...

Because your system (nautilus, disks ...other programs) detect the USB correctly and you can read the content, also write on it, I don't see any problem related to Operating System or/and USB stick(as hardware).

Probably this is related to these specific programs which you mentioned.
