MAC OSX: The writer process ended unexpectedly.

I am trying to write a Rasberry PI image on SD card via BalenaEthcher and getting error i.e. The writer process ended unexpectedly.
I am using MacOS Catalina version 10.15.3.

Hi there!
Could you please provide us with some extra context:

  • The Etcher version you’re running.
  • Relevant logging output, if any, from DevTools, which you can open by pressing Ctrl+Shift+I or Cmd+Alt+I depending on your platform.
  • The type of the SD card you are trying to burn
  • Which Rasberry PI image are you trying to flash?
    Thanks!

I also get this error, but simply making a second attempt works consistently.

My system:

  • macOS 10.15.4
  • balenaEtcher 1.5.86
  • 32G Samsung card

Sorry, I don’t have the card with me to give further information.

Hello, we’ve experienced people having with Catalina before. Have you tried running ether with sudo? This helped some other users.
