It sounds like the file system has been corrupted during the process..
There are a number of fake flash drives on the market (through secondary vendors on sites like eBay and Amazon) that rewrite the reported flash drive capacity to be larger than it actually is (more common on high capacity drives).
This is sometimes refered to as fake 'oversize capacity'
If i were to venture a guess, when you attempted to run the read/write benchmark it may have tried to access a portion of memory on the drive that didn't exist and potentially overwrote a part of the file system in the process.
You could go ahead and create a new files system on the drive ONLY IF you don't require the data on the drive. As this will reformat the flash drive and whatever files were on the drive will be lost.
If you need to recover any files or data off of a broken flash drive you can try a data recovery repair center such as fixmyflashdrive.com
