It would be nice to be able to edit i.e Mageia 7 Live isos on USB, using Mageias own tool i.e adding/modifying persistence, ntfs...
Description of problem:
Diskdrake do not show the stick at all (thinks it is a DVD?)
§ GParted shows it wrong: http://gparted-forum.surf4.info/viewtopic.php?id=17857
§ Console tools work (except for identifying iso9660): fdisk, cfdisk, Parted
§ And so do KDE Partition Manager works, but need KDE/Plasma

The attached patch does the job. Needs testing in the installer to make sure it doesn't make the installer medium visible during the partioning step.
If you want to try it, it can be applied to a Mageia 7 system by, as root
patch -p2 < /path/to/0001-Allow-diskdrake-to-add-partitions-to-Live-ISOs-on-US.patch
replacing /path/to with wherever you save the attached file.
Committed in git, will be fixed in next release of drakx-tools.
Tested in a fresh install of Mageia-8-alpha1. Using diskdrake, I was able to add a persistent partition to a GNOME Live USB stick.
