My flash drive just crashed. Any way to recover the files?

I got a brand new 2GB drive a week ago and now when I plug it in, the computer acts like it hasn't been formatted. Is there a way I can try to recover the files on it?

I'll have to exchange it for a new one too, and that one had better not crash. The brand is Simpletech in case anyone's wondering. (got it from Buy.com)

use getdataback - either NTFS or FAT depending on how it was formatted

Downloaded the demo and it looks like that program would work really well for getting my files back--only it won't let me copy my files unless I pay them $69... Ouch.

I've used this before with good results. It's free.
