Win32 Disk Imager is a free and open source application for Microsoft Windows operating systems designed to write a raw disk image to a removable device or backup a removable device to a raw image file. In short, this tool is used for writing images to USB sticks or SD/CF cards. It is very useful for embedded development, namely Arm development projects (Android, Ubuntu on Arm, etc).

I personally used this program to write the Debian Wheezy ISO image on a 4 GB SD card to use with Raspberry Pi and it worked perfectly. The usage is pretty simple and intuitive, just select the ISO file, then select the removable device and then press the button “Write”, it can take a while for the operation to complete, so be patient.
