Hi @estaf1001 This could be a bug in Media Writer. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/ for reporting bugs. Thank you.

No. If a basic program for creating a bootable installation flash drive is already jamming, then there are no reports. This is the end of the whole system from A to Z.

This could be a compatibility issue with windows 8.1. I have used fedora media writer on windows 10
and it works without any issues. I am not trying to dismiss your issue but just saying that its not always application’s fault. If you just want to create a bootable usb for fedora, you can use rufus or balena Etcher. They might work for you.
