Bug Description

Creating USB install disk with usb-creator works fine. Problem is that USB disk will be write protected. I remember in past I could add my own files to USB install disk. The only way to make USB writable again is to create new partitions. I bricked one of my USB when I tried to make it writable again by hacking with hdparm and other tools.

I think USB install disk should be writable like it used to be.

Kubuntu 16.04.
