Bug Description

Using my old laptop with Ubuntu 12.04, I would like to have Imagewriter to burn a .iso file of Windows 7 onto my USB and use this to install W7 on my new laptop. (I have no possiblity of writing a DVD, that's why)

When trying to select a .iso-file in Imagewriter, I end up just browsing through empty folders. No files and .iso-images are being shown, so I cannot select any. Also, I tried opening Imagewriter from therminal, which did not help.

Help would be much appreciated.

------------

Few minutes later: i ranamed the .iso-file to .img. Imagewriter did recognise this, but when I try starting the writing it crashes, and gives the following error:

Problem Type:
Crash

Title
Imagewriter.py crashed with IndexError in raw_write ():list index out of range

Traceback
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/imagewriter.py", line 112m in do_write
self.raw_write(source, targer)
File "/usr/lib/imagewriter/imagewriter.py", line 150, in raw_write
src_size=float(data.stdout.readline().split()[4]*1.0
IndexError: list index out of range

Also: this appears to be a duplicate of Launchpad Bug #388766

Problem is though: this bug does not exist.
