    something quicker than dd ?


    Hi
    I want to duplicate usb flash drives , using dd , first I used dd to create an image of the flash drive on my disk then started copying this image back to another usb drive. The image is 8GB and it is taking like 1 hour to write the image to flash ! is there a quicker way to do that ?!
