Please specify error.
Even if I may not have paid attention to which unit suffix
the Linux you are using made availabe for the dd command
(so "manually multiplying" bs=1M or bs=1m to bs=1048576)
doesn't have any relation to writing to the wrong device.
As with anything computer-related, no not simply cut & paste
with your eyes shut or your brain asleep. Always think
about what you're doing, it's an essential skill. ;-)
Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0
