    hum; sad to say, it may all be lost. XP has not been kind to USB Flash drives.
    The typical user error is to unplug the device without using the Safe To Remove
    feature OR its brother right-click-->menu-->Eject

    ALL USB Flash devices are formated FAT32 so you might try mounting it on
    some other kind of system (Mac / Linux)
