Cruzer Glide keeps losing formatting

Got an 8Gib-2.0(high speed??) Cruser Glide that constanly loses the formatting. I format it(FAT32) and when I try to "write" to or transfer, almost immediately, it loses it formatting. What must be done to correct/repair this problem? Just what is it that causes this problem?

Given that you can buy a 16GB one for 5 bucks now, I'd dump it & get a new one.

   Yes, flashdrives are realitively inexpensive...but a 16Gb Sandisk does cost more than $5...even on EBay. Yup, could get a "china special" for about $5,,,,I guess.
