I've been testing some distros lately as I need to find other possible options for an older member of my family. So, I have this Hama 3.0 USB Drive 64 GB that I have been using but today it stopped working. I have this one since February 2020 and I barely used it, and when I did it happened mostly in the last 3-4 months.
It didn't break down at once. I had Ventoy on it with multiple other ISOs but it just didn't want to work with EndevourOS - this is was the first sign of problem. I thought it was the OS or ISO's fault so I re-downloaded it but meanwhile I gave it one more try to MX Linux without any issues. Then I tried Endevour again and it broke down, then nothing worked anymore.
1. I have been trying to repair it with USB Format Tool, right-click-formatting from file manager and with Diskpart - all of these on Windows (here I received I/O error).
2. I am mainly using Manjaro and I gave it a try with this tutorial here but it just doesn't work. However, as you can see in the pictures, the USB Drive can be seen in KDE Partition Manager and also by using some commands such as lsblk
I don't think the stick has a physical issue.. but what do you guys think, how can I repair it?
