Why Etcher?

Here at we have thousands of users working through our getting started process and until recently we were embarassed about the steps that involved burning an SD card. There was a separate track for each Mac/Windows/Ubuntu and several manual and error prone steps along the way.

To our surprise there was nothing out there that fitted our needs. So we built Etcher, a SD card burner app that is simple for end users, extensible for developers, and works on any platform.

Validated Burning

No more writing images on corrupted cards and wondering why your device isn't booting.

Hard Drive Friendly

Makes drive selection obvious to avoid wiping your entire hard-drive

Beautiful Interface

Who said burning SD cards has to be an eyesore.

Open Source

Made with JS, HTML, node.js and Electron. Dive in and contribute!

Cross Platform

Works for everyone, no more complicated install instructions.

More on the way

50% faster burns, simultaneous writing for multiple drives. View our roadmap

What's New:

This release introduces the ability flash multiple devices simultaneously, and fixes some long standing issues, like EINVAL write errors on Linux.
Also, a warning has been added when flashing devices larger than the typical SD card, to further prevent accidental flashing of connected external hard drives.


  • Don’t display status dots with a quantity of zero on success screen
  • Correct wording of flash status to use “successful” instead of “succeeded”
  • Keep single drive-image pairs with warnings selected


  • Improve notification messages
