Rocketfish 8G flash drive RF-8GB11, was re-formatted for an XBox, FAT32. My son has a few saved games on it. The drive suddenly stopped working in his and a buddies xbox, flashes on/off & neither box sees it.

Plugging it into a windows 7 box I get similar results. Drive flashes on/off, and in Disk Management it appears/disappears as volume E, File System Raw. Only visible for a second every 5s or so.

Any thoughts on how to recover data?
