On the recommendation of Linux Mint, I tried using Etcher to make a USB bootable. But, the unit was damaged.
To recover the USB, I used the Windows 10 Disk Manager. I selected the damaged drive, then “New Simple Volume”. I followed the steps of the wizard by selecting partition size, disk letter assignment and formatting (I chose FAT32).
That way I recovered my USB drive.
I read this same error in several posts in this forum, and no one from Balena responded by giving any solution.
I will definitely not use Etcher again.
It’s safer Rufus.
