Trying to boot LinuxMint 18 from USB, keep getting a disk error?

As the title says, I recently downloaded LinuxMint18 to put on my computer, and moved the file to a 6 GB USB. I put the USB into it's respective port on my computer, set the boot order to choose the USB first, however, keep getting a disk error. Should I remove the CD Drive from the boot order all together, or is this not the problem? Any help is appreciated, thanks!

Note: If you have any questions for me, I'm very sorry, but I have to work in 30 minutes as of posting this, so I have to leave in 15. I wasn't expecting to run into any issues doing this, hence why I did it with so little time. Sorry!

Nevermind, false alarm. I didn't actually burn the files to the USB, just copied them. My bad!

Glad this got fixed, at least.
