Bug Description

When I click "Browse" and select an ISO image, if opening fails for some reason, usb-creator fails silently. It should show an error message instead, ideally suggesting how to fix the error.

Yes, this is not an opinion it is a very annoying bug. If you try opening and ISO file that doesnt load for some reason its just goes back to the main application after using the file open dialog. No indication that anything failed it just doesnt load.
