You can simply click the Ok button and go on to the next steps. But if it did not solve the problem try disabling your floppy drive before installing debian Linux in the USB since the error is referring to another accessible devise. Also make sure that you are using the account with Admin rights, privilege and permissions.

You also need to remember to save the file with image or use .img extension. The file name does not matter. Another common mistake is forgetting about the lock of your USB. Check to make sure the USB is write-enabled before starting.

Hello Peet36,

 
Try this method. 
  • Simply Click OK and continue
     
  • Browse and choose your Debian-Live .img file  
     
  • Select your USB Device and Click Write. This will write the image to the device
     
  • Now a progress bar will indicate you the progress of the writing process. Once it is done, reboot your PC & set the BIOS option to boot from the USB Device
     
  • You should now be able to boot from your own USB Debian Live Flash Drive.

Hope this would be helpful.
