    "something got loose inside"
    Not good. I think you are out of luck, no way to open it up without breaking it, and there isn't anything in there that can be fixed, as far as I know

    Assuming you don’t mind voiding the warrantee you can open the Cruzer Micro’s fairly easily. If you think it’s a loose USB connector you can check that the solder joint didn’t break, if so resolder it.
    If that doesn’t work the data may be recoverable by a data recovery shop specializing in NAND memory. Unfortunately some controllers on the cruzer micro’s encrypt the data stored in NAND memory making it very hard to retrieve the data.
    You can get a list of controllers on my site:

    If it’s on the non-recoverable list your likely out of luck.
