I get the following error (on Debian Wheezy):
parted: invalid token: primary
Error: Expecting a file system type.
Also, "Formatting" has two "t"s, and the help examples are missing the --install and --format options:
winusb --install <iso path> <partition>
Example: winusb win7_amd64.iso /dev/sdd1
Completely format a drive and install the ISO on it
winusb --format <iso path> <device>
Example: winusb win7_amd64.iso /dev/sdd
