The .iso file is designed to be used for optical media (CD
and DVD). For USB sticks, use the .img (memstick) file from
the download section.

FreeBSD-9.1-RELEASE-amd64-memstick.img will be the correct
file which you can easily dd onto the USB stick.

But maybe this will help you will the file you already have:
