hello vistoresber.
Does you computer recognises the device? Do you see it in the device manager after you plugged it in?
i think that we can safely assume that your usb is fried/gone to the place where hard disks go when they die...
now.. if you really want to get that info (and you are willing to spend money on it) you can search for a data recovery software (pricy) or a data recovery software (cheaper but not always with good results).
hope that helped
