Etcher is really one of the best tools for writting iso images on usb stick ! It detect everything and writte a lot of files. It format all the usb stick and take all the space, not only a partition.
No more error!

It's all too easy to waste a good 20 minutes (or more) looking for a good program to burn .iso images to a USB stick.

For example, if you want to use a Mac to make a bootable USB with linux on it and you've never done it before, you might find yourself wading through all kinds of weird advice online, or advice based on using the Terminal. This can cause much consternation and despair.

Etcher unconsternates everything: Point, click, done. Beautiful.

Plus... it works on Mac, Windows and Linux... and it's free (as in beer) and open source (my favorite). Etcher is just a lovely thing all round.

Worth noting that etcher isn't capable of writing bootable Windows / Winows 10 IoT ISO images as sated in https://github.com/resin-io/etcher/blob/master/docs/USER-DOCUMENTATION.md

When trying to do so a dialog pops up:
"It looks like you are trying to burn a Windows image.
Unlike other images, Windows images require special processing to be made bootable. We suggest you use a tool specially designed for this purpose, such as Rufus (Windows), WoeUSB (Linux), or Boot Camp Assistant (macOS).

Change | Continue"

It's kind of good, I guess, since it discourages people to use Windows :)
But still this minor issue prevents etcher from being a one-stop application for writing ISO images to external storage devices.

Awesome

Little is to say that I am just satisfied. I am amazed. I was looking for an alternative to Rufus on Windows. It is true that it does not have all the options Rufus has (actually, it has none), but it has simplicity and speed. Highly recommended!

As easy as rufus but it's cross-platform. More reliable than UNetbootin.

Etcher is lightweight, easy to use and works perfectly fine.
I have used it on Xubuntu and Elementary with no issue.

Options to write an ISO to an SD card, which is not working in unetbootin. Slick user interface. You might want to to turn off analytics in the options first though.

Tried several ways to burn my ISO on a USB without success. This software worked smoothly and the UI is extremely simple. I highly recommend it!

I dealt with many image writers in the past. This is by far the most user friendly one. And it works flawlessly!!!

Brilliant UI, and does well what it says: writing disk images to SD cards.
But not vice-a-versa: it cannot write SD card data to image.
Thus it doesn't serve as a full SD-card backup solution.

I've used Etcher for a long time, and it's never failed me. Plus, its interface is top-notch.

Etcher makes the job of burning images to SD cards dead simple, without concerns of overwriting the OS disk. And it does it while looking snazzy too.
