Ubuntu: dd: unknown operand



Question:

sudo dd if=/Macintosh HD/Users/nickzieno/Downloads/ubuntu-14.04.1-desktop-amd64.img of=/dev/rdiskN bs-1m  

I'm now getting this after I enter all of that

dd: unknown operand HD/Users/nickzieno/Downloads/ubuntu-14.04.1-desktop-amd64.iso  


Solution:1

Your input file name contains a space character so you need to use quotes. And it has to be bs=1m instead of bs-1m:

sudo dd if='/Macintosh HD/Users/nickzieno/Downloads/ubuntu-14.04.1-desktop-amd64.img' of=/dev/rdiskN bs=1m
