I have also a failed USB drive. Unfortunately the files can't be recovered. I have not seen a known "cure" for such devices but only proper synchronization with the files you have on your desktop. You have to regularly make a backup of your files.

There are solutions for getting your data recovered from a flash drive that has gone bad, but it kind of depends on how bad you want it. There are data recovery labs that specialize in recovering data from broken hard drives, optical drives, usb flash drives etc. But I have to warn you it is quite expensive. I am a computer technician and I had to send a hard drive to the lab to recover a business' data. Typical cost is between $1200 and $2400 for a hard drive, I have no idea for a USB flash drive To him it was worth it. He had to have that data.
