But read with caution: /dev/sdb (no "1" appended) needs to
be the device the file has to be written to. Remember:
/dev/sdb1 is the 1st partition of the 2nd disk unit,
/dev/sdb1 is _the_ 2nd disk unit, and _that_ is where
the image needs to go - it represents a whole device

This is to be expected because the stick hasn't been
prepared correctly. Again:

	# dd if=FreeBSD-11-RELEASE-amd64-memstick.img of=/dev/sdb bs=1M conv=sync

is the correct command here. That kind of mistake can
be summarized as "fat fingers"... ;-)

You can even "more /dev/sdb1" and "more /dev/sdb" without
mounting it, there is no relation.
