Default Flash Drive problem

I have a lexar 4gb flash drive. Not its inaccessible. Windows says I need to format it before i can use it. Linux tells me it cant be mounted. Now, somehow it got a bad super block. Basically, I apparently unplugged it while it was being read or being copied to. I tried dosfstools in Linux with no luck.

This thing has VERY important files. A lot of school files, Bots,etc etc.

Does anyone know how I can retrieve the data on it?

Try using WinHex, That should get some files back!
