[rear-users] Convert ISO to USB

What are people using to convert iso images?
I want to create backups and ISO on a nfs mount. I've been testing Rear
using virtualbox so I copy the iso back to my desktop and set virtualbox vm
to use it.
The documentation on the website indicates this -
sfdisk /dev/sdd <<EOF
mkfs.vfat -F32 -n REAR-USB /dev/sdd1
Pull and replug the USB stick. Verify it is mounted.
unetbootin method=diskimage isofile=/path/to/[ISO].iso installtype=USB
However when I look ( fdisk -l /dev/sdb) at the usb flash it shows it as a
Linux partition. And then running mkfs.vfat -F32 on that same partition.
Doesn't seem correct. Sometimes it boots. Sometimes it drops me to grub.
Since the iso created by Rear isn't a hybrid(fdisk -l myimage.iso) iso I
can't simply use 'dd' to the non partitioned device (/dev/sdb).
Would like to know what others are using. Want a reliable way to create
usb flash drives since this would generally be used in an emergency
