Hello, I am using dd command to make an image of my usb drive.
Ricks-Mac-mini:Desktop drck$ sudo dd if=/dev/disk4 of=myusb.img bs=1m

After I typed in my password, it just sits there for a long, long time. There is nothing on my USB nor in terminal shows no error but not any visable indiction that it is copying. So is it copying or what? Thanks.

I’d try opening another terminal and seeing if myusb.img is growing.
