Firstly, to get Ubuntu on a flash drive (usb stick, sd card etc) see the following Ubuntu community doc:

I do not own one of these devices so I cannot provide much more support. Hopefully this helps.

Can you help with this problem?

Provide an answer of your own, or ask TommyTea for more information if necessary.
