Flash drive help!!

Hello, I have an issue with my 16GB SanDisk USB flash drive. This USB flash drive was working fine till last night. When I plunged it to my computer as usual, it told me to format it a first. The newly transferred videos inside this USB drive were also inaccessible. Should I format this drive? How about my stored videos? Is there any way for me to restore my videos back before formatting? Please help me!
Thanks a lot!
