The mini ISOs don't have a .disk/info, nor do they put their configuration in the isolinux directory.

Clean usb-creator log attached.

Deleted the previous log and repeated the actions of clicking "Other", selecting the mini.iso image file, clicking OK and nothing showing up.

I have the same problem too. USB-Creator does not recognize/add to the list of images (Oneiric). Hope you can fix this or someone offer a workaround.

even worse if someone start gtk creator with.
usb-creator-gtk -i mini.iso
then the application does't say that it has selected another image that what was specified.
At least it should output an error message

The following combination works for me.

LiLi usb creator 2.8.21 and Ubuntu 13.04 "Raring Ringtail" Minimal CD 32-bit (x86)

New: You can make a working USB install drive with the dd cloning method with mini.iso version 13.04. See this link.
