I used Unetbootin to make a bootable drive from my mp3 player.

Now it's not showing on boot:

Which I suppose is because it has the .iso file?

It connects with a squished USB cable, so perhaps that's the problem?  It 
has to directly connect with the full USB connector?

The BIOS is set to boot from USB first, but it didn't detect it either.  
How do I confirm that the mp3 player has the .iso which Unetbootin copied 
on to it?


thanks,

Thufir
