One of the most useful command in Linux, is dd. We also know that dd provides info regarding the current status, using kill:
kill -USR1 <pidof dd> but I really prefer the pv way (apt-get install pv)
# We usually do this way dd if=my.iso of=/dev/sdb # This is the "pv" way dd if=my.iso | pv | dd of=/dev/sdb Of course, you need apt-get install -y pv before, but piping through pv, allow you to see the status, in real time.
