That's no surprise.  USB flashdrives have a finite life.  Some have
longer lives than others.

I was quite surprised to hear of people successfully using them for this
sort of thing, seeing how I know someone who wore one out rather quickly
using it as his web browser cache location.  I expected the lifespan
would be far too short to be practical for anything other than a
read-only system.

If you want someone else to chime in with more specific information, I
think you'd have to name the particular USB drive that you got.

[tim localhost ~]$ uname -r
