That doesn't work for UBCD because it's a normal cd-only ISO. Only 
"hybrid" ISOs that specifically have MBR/GPT stuff can be dumped onto a 
disk and actually boot. Part of the confusion here is because a lot of 
modern Linux distros (especially Debian based distros) have started 
using "hybrid" ISOs instead of providing separate usb stick images.

In order to make a bootable usb stick from UBCD, you need to either 
hand-format the stick and set up your own boot loader, or use the 
scripts they provide.
