    That's sometimes a problem when using a gui tool, they sometimes do not report errors.

    I would suggest go back and use this tutorial . it is very easy, if you get stuck post back so maybe we can help.

    Is the spelling correct? You have "/mnt/backtract" & "/mnt/backtrack/"

    To simplify just make the folder /mnt/BT and copy over after you make it
