How to "burn" ISO/img/cue+bin to USB drive?

How to "burn" ISO/img/cue+bin to USB drive?

I don't get it. Why is it so complicated to create a bootable usb from a disc image?

It is possible but not straightforward: http://www.boot-land.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=6436

Pyrolistical, your own answer is correct - bootsectors for different types of drives (CD, HD, floppy, etc.) are different. That's not to say that you can't do a similar thing to ISO images with other types of drives. WinImage should be able to do it, though I haven't actually tried with a USB drive. (Google reports it as an "attack site" for some reason - I'm not sure why.)
