Sounds like the usb is corrupt somehow. I would try writing the image to it again,
Itís possible due to some caching that it wasnít done writing the usb when you removed it which would explain what you see. You could also try a different usb disk incase there was something wrong with it. You could also re-download the image again incase something happened to your download.

If all else fails, I made a guide to making your own recovery disk. Itís mainly for the older models which buffalo doesnít provide a disk for but does work for TS5000

Iíve also created a Debian installer for these devices if that interests you:
