dd: failed to open '/media/pi/6431-3338/': Is a directory

I need to give the output file a name, apparently. I tried using the same "Cyrus_5020...img" name and it worked, but is that name OK? I have rm'ed it for now.
What operating system does your Raspberry Pi have, is it some sort of Linux?

With 'dd' the target (of=) disk has to be input as a 'hardware address', in the form '/dev/sdx', where 'x' is a letter specific for each disk. You do not need any filename!

In Linux you can check the available disks (and partitions) in terminal window e.g. with the command 'lsblk':

Code: Select all

~$ lsblk

In that listing there are three disks which could be used with dd (of=): /dev/sda, /dev/sdb and /dev/sdc . Just be be careful that you choose the right one and do not copy the image on your computers own hard disk! That would destroy the contents of it...

Note: those /dev/sdx definitions may vary depending on whether you connect your removable disks before or after booting your machine, or if you remove and reconnect them! So, do the the checking with 'lsblk' just before you run 'dd'.

Dont give up... you are close with the DD as well.
