I am running Windows 7 and have been trying to use UNetbootin to put a Linux ISO on to a flash drive but for some reason i can't locate the downloaded ISO file?


I went along to unetbootin.sourceforge.net and downloaded unetbootin-windows-583. I then opened the program and clicked on "Run as administrator".


When the next window opened i clicked on Diskimage => ISO and browsed to find the ISO image. I also made sure that the other settings selected were: Type: USB Drive, Drive: E:\ . But for some reason i cannot find the downloaded iso file. When i do browse to the Downloads folder all i get is: no items match your seach?


Could someone tell me where i'm going wrong please

make sure the file type for the search is selected as .iso or might can try all files extension. Are you able to find it yourself, ie "You can physically see it on the screen, just unetbootin doesn't want to find it?"

You should do a search for the correct name of the download. If you don't know the

name, attempt to download the file again and note the name of the file and the location

designated for the download to be stored. 

You can cancel the download once you have the correct name and location.


If for some reason you can't find the file, you can allow UNetbootin to download an .ISO 

for you.
