    From the DiskMakerX "about" page: "To build a bootable disk, you’ll need an 8 GB (minimum) USB thumb key drive, a USB, Firewire or Thunderbolt drive or an SD-Card."

    I've used it to make installer flash drives and it works fine.

    Yes, the name can be deceiving, but as csixty4 said, you can choose your preferred media type, includind a thumb flash drive.
