Default Problem Restoring OS 10.6 to USB Flash Drive - 01-21-2010, 06:28 AM

I just received a mini 10v on which I am attempting to run snow leopard. I am using Gizmodo's guide, and I keep hitting a dead end at step 8: restoring the OS 10.6 installation dvd to my partitioned flash drive.

When I click restore, the progress bar runs, but at about 9 minutes left, I receive an error message. The first time around, it was "invalid argument." Each time thereafter, it has been "input/output error."

I have followed the instructions to the letter, so I am extremely confused.

I am using an eMac and a Centon brand 8gb USB 2.0 flash drive.

Any ideas?
