    Why is your ubuntu as of now failing you?
    It won't turn on?
    Are you getting any errors?

    Anyways,
    What are you trying to do with the usb once it has ubuntu on it?
    Are you trying to re-install it on your computer with the usb?
    Are you trying to make it a "live usb" where you can boot ubuntu just from your usb?

    Why wont it let you download it from Ubuntu?

    I don't understand what your trying to do here, sorry.
    But if you have the CD already with it, why not just re-install it with that? Assuming thats what your trying to do.

    Yes, it's possible. Pretty easy actually.

    All you have to do is boot up into your OS, then open up your CD as you would any other folder/usb. Then locate the .iso file thats on the CD.

    Then just copy image file to selected location. Once you've done that you have the iso wherever you copy it too.

    Once you have the file on your computer from the CD, follow this:

    1. Insert a USB stick with at least 2GB of free space
    2. In the main menu, go to System > Administration and open 'Startup Disk Creator' (or just search for it in your apps, it's with ubuntu as default)
    3. Click 'Other' to choose the downloaded ISO file
    4. Select the file and click 'Open'
    5. Select the USB stick in the bottom box and click 'Make Startup Disk'
    6. That's it! When the process completes, you'll be ready to restart your computer and begin installing Ubuntu*

    Tutorial thanks to ubuntu.com

    *Notes - You have to set up in BIOS to load USB first before an OS gets loaded or else this will be useless.
