Rebuild or re-image flaashdrive

Is it possible to re-image or rebuild a flash drive that has had it's writing speed deteriorate from aprox. 6Mb/s down to 1.8-2.4 Mb/s? Let's don't jump to conclusions before we explore/exhaust possibilities. [Kingston DT101 16Gb- 1+y/o]

I guess I should explain in detail. First, limit and direct your responses to the thread's query. I did not ask for, nor want, opinions of the drive's value. I want to restore the drive to it's original operating specs...if possible.

All responses should be directed toward that objective. That way, then, we might get to learn!

Is it worth trying to restore a $9 item ? But I would say other thatn a format/swipe there really is not a lot you can do to a USB drive.

Yes, if it is possible. The reason not being it's disposability, nor it's inexpensive replacement, but to learn to repair ; the how's and why's. Perhaps that is of no interest to YOU, but I like to "fix" things...if possible!
