Most likely the drive is bad and needs to be replaced. Flash drives are the least reliable of modern storage media and should not be trusted with primary storage of important files. They often fail without warning or apparent reason. They should be used as a transport media, not for primary storage.

You do not want to wast you time or trust your data to a problem drive.
