The unit prefix is in _no_ relation to the name of the
target device, but depends in the _implementation_ of dd
which obviously differs between FreeBSD, Linux, and Solaris.

That has already been discussed and solved.

As expected.

_How_ did you mount the USB stick? As I wrote in one of
my initial replies: It's considered both reasonable and
polite to write to the list

	a) the _exact_ command you've used, and

	b) the _exact_ reply of the system (or reaction
	   of the system otherwise)

If you've actually mounted the _properly_ created USB
stick, you should have seen the FreeBSD-typical file

That's interesting, at least something happened. :-)

If you run fdisk on the _properly_ created USB stick,
you should see a GPT layout with 4 partitions (at least
that's what the mini-memstick image creates for the 11.0
version of amd64, which I did use for illustration in my
previous reply).
