Default recovering .ai files

My flash drive went crazy yesterday and i have no access to my files. When i insert it, i get the message saying that this drive isnt formatted do u want to format it now?
I have tryied to use partition magic, and ontrack safe recovery but with little results. There are some Illustrator files (.ai) that cannot be found. What are my options so that apart from recovering to be able also to repair files or the stucture of the flash drive and maybe i can see the files back, i know that theyre there! Can anyone help?

you can use a linux live cd is what he means I presume, it allows you to have graphical user interface without having to install Linux.

And ERD commander does a similar thing but for windows below is a description and download link:

version 2

there are later versions but think you have to pay for them for ERD commander.
