i've tried it on 2 4gb usb flash drive, one of which is new, just opened out of it's blister pack.
i've also tried using the 2gb image on the 4gb usb flash drive, same result, it is always 1 record short.
note: the created flash drive works, it boots up, you can configure it etc etc, the only thing you cannot do is upgrade, it will say the image is bigger than the flash drive (the 2gb image on the 4gb usb flash drive gives the same error message)

That is not a problem with the images. If they work, it's probably not an issue. If they don't work, it's probably something with your reader, media, or the method being used. Try to decompress it first, and then write it out.
Post in the forum if you still have issues.
