Re: Unusable system during dd to USB block device

I tried to dd to /dev/sd2 (or whatever the number was), and it looked

3 possibilities here:

a) You wrote to the wrong device.
b) You now have a copy of the input file in /dev
c) _Very_ exotic HW issue. (You write to the device; the device says "write OK"
   but, it doesn't actually write anything. I've known this to happen on some
   models of eMMC/SDHC cards.)
