USB memory stick live time?

My 128 MB memory stick can't be accessed anymore...
I might have it used a hundred times during the past 6 months. Somebody told
me that they will go bad a after a certain number of rewrites (like a
battery that can be loaded up to 500 times). I can't imagine that since a
hard disk with moveable components will last much longer.
Are there any data that will show the average lifespan of these gadgets?

Thanks,
SR

No, it doesn't let me do it. By the way, there was no additional software
included since Windows recognized it from day one (old USB 1.1).

Try their web site. Mine needed software to work with W98SE and included was
a means to reformat. You might try to reformat it using ScanDisk or what
ever you have-just change to the drive letter for the stick.
