comment USB Stick Drive Losing Format
Hahahahaha been there, sir, been there. I was unable to identify specifically why the boot record was being corrupted, but there was a very large amount of bad sectors. Just cheap shoddy manufacturing. It was enough information to condemn the drive to the trash.

comment USB Stick Drive Losing Format
@AndrewMorton, please place at least the first part of your comment in an answer, as that looks like it'll help me get the closest I can to confirmation of the issue.

Yes, this is my supposition, but I'd like to be able to perform more thorough analysis in support of that hypothesis. What would cause corruption of both copies of the boot record, I wonder?

I'm formatting as exFAT and getting the issues outlined in the post. Needless to say, the results are not reliable.

Thanks TD, but no dice. Even if I enter the full /home/ahowe42/Downloads path, it still can't access it.
