Some file on USB gone Wonky

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I have this USB that gone a little wonky. Some of the file seem to be corrupt. On a couple of file that are jpg the file opens for a second and then changes to a screen that says "It looks like we do not support this file format" And then some time this file will appear on top of the error message. What would cause such a thing to happen?

The flash controller in the usb stick dying? Can also be the flash itself.

 

Usb sticks generally die pretty fast if you use them a lot. 

Anyway to repair or maybe recover the files?

Not really, usb sticks are really volatile storage anyways, you shouldn't have anything important on it?

If you have anything important then data recovery experts, otherwise it is just dead, time to get a new usb.

 

Maybe if you are really into tech and microcontrollers you could fix it, but that is far away from my expertise.
