I have a Mac Mini with OS X version 10.8 and Boot Camp version 5.  I am trying to create a bootable USB drive using Boot Camp.  I am using a Windows 7 Pro iso file and a 4 GB flash drive to create it.  I select 'Create a Windows 7 install disk' along with the other two selections.  Everytime I try it, I get the same error message of:  Your bootable USB drive could not be created.  An error occurred while formatting the disk.


Could this be a bad flash drive or a software error?

Mac mini, OS X Mountain Lion
