Which version of isodumper do you use?

I used usbdumper for Windows, as my Linux partition needs a clean reinstall.

usbdumper provides no version or revision information. It was downloaded from mageia.org today.

I see what you mean, on https://www.mageia.org/en/downloads/ when doing mouseover on "USB drive." it reads
For windows use usbdumper.If it show "writing error or access denied" try the fallowing method: run the console (cmd), then type "diskpart", then "list disk", then select your disk with "select disk", and type "clean" (it will erase the key).

Have to inquire with marcom team about that.

But you didn't mention yet which particular image you tried, and if you verified the md5sum of that one.
