If you have flash drives dying when you do a specific thing and on the same computer perhaps the cause is related to what you are doing, how you are doing it, or the hardware. I'm not trying to be irritating but many people format flash drives every day and do not have multiple flash drives fail.
Can you give us some more information that we can use to try to help you? What type of USB drives are you having problems with (NVRAM drives or hard drives with USB connections)? How many USB drives have you had that are not working? Did they all stop working after you did a specific thing (formatting, wiping, reading, writing, etc.)? What software did you use when the USB drives failed? Did you buy all of the USB drives at the same time? Are all the USB drives the same make and model?
There is just so much information we don't have and I was very surprised that you responded by writing that you keep having this problem and you implied the problem starts when you do something specific.
If you can provide us answers for the information above that would be extremely helpful.
