My USB key behaves as a CD, because I'm not able to copy a .dmg file from my MacBook Pro 2016 with `sudo dd if=/Users/jeremiegauthier/Downloads/ubuntu-gnome-16.10-desktop-amd64.dmg of=/dev/rdisk2 or with the following method :

Could anyone be able to tell what I need to do to allow the access?


You need to precede the dd command with sudo to give you permission.
