    hi, i use gparted to know which sea, sdb or sdc my usb is.
    i'll explain:
    go to terminal
    write "gparted" whiteout quotes and press send
    than a program will start called gparted
    look up- right, you will see a sector where it's written all the usb o hard disk of your computer whit name (sda sdb sdc) search the name of you per drive (by the memory)

    now you've done use this name to complete the dd installation


    sorry for my english, I'm italian, if u have time look at my tread
