Return it to the manufacturer and claim it to be faulty.

Depending on how it got damaged and what brand it is that may well be the smart thing.
Those things are (for the better brands like Sandisk) designed to be pretty much indestructible and some brands (again like Sandisk) for that reason offer lifetime unlimited warranty on them.

Throw it out and buy a new one. When you can buy a 1gb one for like $7 these days why even bother keeping it? Plus it would probably cost you more time and money getting it replaced if it is under some kind of replacement sceme.

it would cost you nothing.
An email to the importer/manufacturer to get a warranty return approval.
And after that probably a trip to the store you bought it to get a new unit (the same trip you'd take anyway to get that new one ;)).

Send it as a gift to your foe. He will be happy that hes getting "something" from his "enemy". He will then stop hating you :D

So a "foe" would be happy to receive a broken item and stop hating you? Are you high?

Are you high?

I wish i was :( ! But the 'end result' (of giving a burnt USB drive to your enemy) depends on your enemy. There are still good people, you see :D

Good idea.
I doubt there are actually any myths about that kind of action. Although after this conversation...?

Sell it on eBay, they take everything.

No they don't. We tried to sell one of my mates. You're not allowed sell people.
