Helpful tip via RaspberryPi-Spy:
In the Raspberry Pi Weekly #147 newsletter they mentioned a new tool for writing SD card images. This tool is called “Etcher”. Now I’m a great fan of Win32DiskImager but I liked the look of Etcher’s clean and simple interface. It also promised to make it clearer what device you were about to nuke which is a good thing if ever you’ve written a Pi image over one of your hard drives.
