PS. In the case of the college kids USB' devices failing, you have to wonder how well the little buggers were treated. If not treated with care, any media will see failure sooner or later.
Ugh... just had a Verbatim 4GB Store n Go Pro die on me. No warning.
Luckily I don't keep anything important on my flash drives, EVER. But still, that was a pretty high end Flash drive in my collection. I think I only have 1 more of those now
I might send it in to get it replaced though. Limited Lifetime warranties are nice. And for the record, it works about a year after it went through my washing machine (so I don't think it's related).
