    Did you unplug the thing without "safely removing hardware"? You should always "safely remove" stuff.

    If you can't read the stick on any computer, then you can use any file or data recovery program you like. PC Inspector File Recovery is free for example.

    never hot swap flash drives. Always stop them.
