I would first try to reproduce the error without a USB external storage
device being a factor. I cannot recommend working directly from a USB
device. Ever. The risk of failure (in all contexts) seems to go up
considerably when doing so and I myself have suffered from this (although
not with LO). Not an answer I know, and you have my full sympathy and
respect Alex, just a possible avenue for further testing. 

I am not discounting an LO problem as your description sounds similar to
this bug: The example
file does open in Writer (displays garbage), but cannot be opened by an
archive manager.

Best wishes, Owen.
