I guess I'm a bit confused about what is happening. You copied the image successfully before, you just got a usb error when you tried booting from the USB (which is generally resolved by entering "usb reset" as the first U-Boot command, before "setenv bootargs ...").
When you say "it disappeared", did you try going to the GParted menu and click on Refresh Devices?
I copied the archived image successfully from the site on the preceding page to my Ubuntu downloads. I tried copying the unarchived image to my usb drive, with limited success. The Places menu on Ubuntu shows USB drive versions of FIENIX-DISK and FIENIX-BOOT.
If I click on FIENIX-DISK I get
"Unable to mount FIENIX-DISK Error mounting /dev/sdc2 at /media/bart/FIENIX-DISK: Command-line `mount -t "ext4" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid" "/dev/sdc2" "/media/bart/FIENIX-DISK"' exited with non-zero exit status 32: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc2, missing codepage or helper program, or other error"
Unfortunately all that means to me so far is that something apparently didn't get copied right.
If I click on FIENIX-BOOT it opens and shows the items it should. But if I try to fatload the uImage-5.5 therein, Uboot tells me it can't read it. And this is
after a usb reset.
The time it disappeared, GParted was on-screen and of course continued to show /dev/sdc from which I had just deleted two partitions resulting from a previous copy attempt as unallocated. It was after Refresh Devices that it disappeared from GParted. It is back at the moment (!) but as usual there is a warning "Corrupt extent header while reading journal super block."
I have compared the dumpe2fs results I get for the USB copy with the February(?) soar on disk. A lot of the data is exactly identical, but these differences might be significant. The ones starting with * are from the usb drive.
