iso to USB with dd and show progress status

image="file.iso";drive="/dev/null";sudo -- sh -c 'cat '"${image}"'|(pv -n -s $(stat --printf="%s" '"${image}"')|dd of='"${drive}"' obs=1M oflag=direct) 2>&1| dialog --gauge "Writing Image '"${image}"' to Drive '"${drive}"'" 10 70 7'
Does the same but shows nicely progress in real time with correct Size in %. But also needs the packages sudo,dd,pv and dialog.
