Bug Description

the downloaded version of unr is a .iso and image reader only reads .img's. I just renamed mine to .img and it worked fine, but maybe this should be mentioned in the instructions.

Mabe Imagewrite should allow both Fileextensions in the Filechooser Dialog.

I second this. An increasing number of projects are using so-called "Hybrid ISOs", these are ISO images which can also be written to USB drives simply using dd. Since usb-imagewriter is essentially a frontend to dd, it should be just a matter of changing a filter in the filechooser dialog. Please add this.

summary: - img vs iso for imagewriter
+ Allow .iso as valid filename extension
