USB memory stick help

Hey guys,

I have a question,

is there any way to recover a corrupted drive.

A while back i was formating my 2gb memory stick when the power went out.
The format did not complete and now the drive wont work at all.

is there any way to get it working again?

Thanks in advance.

Ok, did some googling.
Found this utility Low-Level Format Tool-HDDguru

It is currently working its magic.

More after the break.

There is software out there. I was told it's all a ripoff for any flash media but I would be interested to hear someone tell us different. I have been told if flash media goes bad to send it back to the company and let them replace it. Your data is gone. I sure see a lot of software advertised though......
