USB sticks has limited number of write cycles, good ones have way more, bad ones have less, or much less. 3 cheap Samsung USB sticks died on me in less than a week, 3 good one- made by Buffalo, Lexar and Transcent, purchased the same time, 5-6 or more years ago, heavily used and abused, are still in perfect shape...
