On the Mac, I prefer Data Rescue. It has worked well for me.

For USB sticks the best is Photorec/Testdisk. Both tools are included on the PCRepix LiveCD. But I've encountered many USB sticks that were just beyond using recovery tools. With thos your only chance is sending them to a professional recovery agency:

You boot the PC from the DVD, then on it's desktop you will see "Photorec", with which you can try to scan the USB stick for the files. On the desktop and in the help menu there is also a link to the Photorec site to get help on how to use the tool.
