Re: Re: [partial resolution] Re: Problem withj dd

1/ No the same removable device doesn't always receive the same /dev/sdX.If you unmount  it ( umount /dev/sdX) and plug it again, it can be called /dev/sdY (I suppose the kernel keeps tne name in memory for some time). 
2/ use "mount" without arguments., plug your flash drive and run "mount" again: the new /dev/sdX  (or /dev/sdXn) is your drive (or mounted partition). Unmount it with "umount /dev/sdX(n)" and run dd with  "dd if=input-image of=/dev/sdX [options]" without the partition number if there was one. All this as root of course.
	Good luck. Jacques
