I've downloaded the netinst iso with intention of copying it to a flash

What's happening?

That's a legitimate question, but a better one(s) would be:


5) Can one be really sure that "/dev/sdc" is a flash drive?


A variation of the "device does not always get the same /dev/??? designation". I've got another problem. After giving dd the correct destination the install did not go as expected. I've an idea of what's wrong but I need to run some tests. More later. Thanks

Found it. An intermittent hardware problem. IOW not really a Debian problem
