sudo dd bs=1m if=/path/to/minepeon- of=/dev/disk1

But it says there is no file like this what am I doing wrong please?

The path to a file on the desktop looks like this:
where _your_user_ is replaced by the correct value, etc.

By the way, you can avoid typos by typing the dd command up to the point where the in-file (if) name goes, and dragging the file icon from the desktop to the Terminal window - the full path and filename will be filled in for you.
QUOTE Thanks
