broken thumb drive???

I had diskpart running "clean all" for a thumb drive. I accidentally restarted Windows and now my computer can't see the thumb drive. It's plugged in (disk 4 in the picture below) but says no media.

It is weird. I can "open" it in Windows but when I try to drag a file to it, it says "device not found".

As I'm typing this, I tried the thumb drive one more time and now it works. Should I toss the thumb drive or do you think it's good? I could just buy a new one (16GB) seeing how cheap they are.

Just checked, they are $5 on newegg.com
