Fried USB Key Anyone?
This is quite the curious incident. I was sitting on my computer yesterday (not literally) with my trusty Kingston DataTraveler plugged in. Then, the electricity went out. I started freaking out because a few days back I opened my case and gave it a good dusting, so I thought I screwed it up. Then I noticed that all other electrical appliances are off as well, and after freaking out even more, I realised it's some grid failure. Sure enough, after 5 minutes when the electricity came back, I turned on my PC to see that my Kingston worked no more. Sure, the LED still lights up, but it's not recognized properly at all. No name, no size, no contents. I'm pissed to say the least.
