This problem always seems to pop up when there is a power outage or I am installing an new HP printer.  I believe it is trying to load the driver/software usb disk, which is not formatted for Mac.  Neither un-pugging/plugging the USB nor turning the printer on/off worked.  The solution is to unplug the usb, then turn the printer on and wait for it to fully turn on.  So both the computer and the printer are fully on.  Then plug the USB in.  Presto!

Open Finder, Disk Utility and Open Terminal.  In terminal type “dd if=” and then drag the iso from Finder to the terminal window, that will fill in the path.  Then space and type “of=” and drag the mounted usb partition from finder to the Terminal windows to again fill the path.  Then in your Disk Utility, Unmount the USB Partition (Unmount, NOT Eject).  Then back in your terminal window, hit enter.  Done.

So your command should look like this “dd if=/Users/user/Downloads/SW_DVD5_Win_Pro_7w_SP1.ISO of=/Volumes/USB”
