ISO corruption

Russ, I've seen the same thing twice - I'm wondering if it's not mounting the ISOs read-only? ISO9660 is obviously a read-only filesystem anyway, but UDF isn't .. Will investigate further when I have the time..

Try this link instead. I don't know why but I spent some 6 hours in the company of WinUSB and still didn't get a usable Windows 7 bootable USB stick. Then I tried this: And it worked like a charm. Perhaps the problem is that the winusb script does not update the partition table of the written USB stick.
