Unable to create any working bootable SDCARD

I've tried many times (Cubieboard2, A20)

After every attempt when the process is finished I get an error saying my mac cannot read the card, when putting it in my cubieboard it says the card is damaged.

However. The card isn't damaged. It's new and working for everything else and can be read and formatted just fine.

This is the line I use to "install" the image onto my sdcard
sudo dd bs=1m if=Cubian-base-r1-arm-a20.img of=/dev/rdisk1

I'm using the latest version of Mac OSX Mountain Lion. Maybe someone with the same system can help me?
