Yes, it's true - the FromUSBStick page is currently a bit long and
could be confusing. I think that we could probably crack this issue by
creating two subpages as follows:


The parent page would have links to each and explain the difference.
That way, you get a direct landing page for Img file writing without
the confusion of trying to deal with both issues on the same page.

What do you think?
