Etcher is an easy-to-use cross-platform tool for burning images to SD cards, USB drives and other removable devices.

The program keeps operations to the bare minimum, all of them clearly displayed on a simple interface. Choose your image, then your drive, and finally click the "Flash!" button.

Etcher supports many different image formats: ISO, IMG, RAW, BZ2, DMG, DSK, ETCH, GZ, HDDIMG, XZ and ZIP.

The "Choose a drive" step only allows selecting removable devices, reducing the chance that you'll accidentally trash a fixed drive. If this doesn't suit your needs - maybe a removable device isn't being detected correctly - you can disable this protection by turning on "Unsafe Mode" in settings.

Once the image is written, Etcher validates the results to make sure it's worked correctly. That's usually a good idea, but can take a while, and if you prefer you can disable validation in Settings.

What's new in Etcher 1.5.74 (see changelog for more)?

- Etcher pro leds feature [Alexis Svinartchouk]
- Compress deb package with bzip instead of xz [Alexis Svinartchouk]
- Update electron to 7.1.11 [Alexis Svinartchouk]
- Sort devices by device path on Linux [Alexis Svinartchouk]

Verdict:

Etcher is a simple and straightforward image burner which works almost anywhere. It's a likeable tool, but keep in mind that it only burns the image. If you need extra abilities, like an option to burn a Windows image and make it bootable, look for a more sophisticated tool such as Rufus.
