No matter what I do, the usb drive remains blank.  I have tried formatting FAT and EXT.  I have tried different .usb files.  Nothing.  The contents are never replaced if there are any before dd, none are written if it's blank before dd.  I'm at a loss.
If you are using dd correctly this is clearly not true - so the question is - why do you think they are blank?

how are you 'testing' for blankness?
