You can use:

sudo dd if=/dev/sdd ~/image.iso; sudo chown $USER:$USER ~/image.iso

assuming /dev/sdd is the USB device. This is a great way to backup USB based OSes as you can simply reverse the command parameters and put the image onto a new USB to clone the OS, or the same device to restore the OS :)

Can you help with this problem?
