I'm not sure what happened, but it sounds like you should set that particular board aside! The board is damaged if it's hot enough to smell bad. Was it maybe plugged into the processor board the wrong way? Either way, please contact info@tinycircuits.com so we can try to figure out what happened and replace your board.

Thanks,
Ben

However, such a decision may be hasty if the problem is not related to the drive but the controller or socket. To clarify the reason, it is recommended to connect the flash drive to another device - a laptop or PC, check whether it will heat up. If it feels hot again, it should not be used in the future. This will lead to the controller's failure, loss of information, sometimes very valuable. Usually, in this case, FLASH DRIVE RECOVERY https://www.salvagedata.com/usb-flash-drive-recovery/  and several other procedures that specialists deal with help. So if you don't know how to fix the breakdown yourself, it's better to trust the professionals.
