YOu need to use Get Data Back for FAT to recover files. Then format it. To give it a try just insert it in any other computer.

The usb drive doesnot open windows need to format


We need a bit more information here. Was this a new usb ? If so you may simply need to format it in windows (a quick format would do using FAT32). If this is an usb with data on it was it used by a windows or linux os ? If windows was it NTFS?

Reformat unmountable flash drive on mac?


Instructions
    • 1

      Open the system drive, usually titled "Macintosh HD." Open Applications, then Utilities and double click the "Disk Utility" program to open it. A window will open giving a list of all the drives currently mounted on the computer.

    • 2

      Select the disk that needs to be formatted on the left. It is not possible to format the startup disk unless the system has booted from the Install Disk. It is important to note that formatting the startup disk will permanently erase the data stored on the disk. If you are planning on erasing the startup disk, back up all important files and applications.

      • 3

        Click on the "Erase" tab to the right of the list of drives. The window will now display the options for erasing the hard drive and formatting it to work on the Macintosh computer.

      • 4

        Select the Volume Format from the pop-up list. In most cases it's best to leave it at "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" as this is the default. This setting is the best option for running Mac OS X. If there are other requirements for the disk, then select the format that best suits your needs. If you have questions about the formats, refer to the Apple user's manual.

      • 5

        Name the hard drive. Type a name for the disk in the field where it asks for the name. This name will always appear when the disk is mounted on a Macintosh computer.

      • 6

        Click the erase button. A window will open asking to verify the erase procedure. Click the erase button in this window to start the process of erasing the disk. Once the process is complete, the drive will appear with the name it was given on the left side of the window with the list of drives and on the desktop of the Macintosh computer.

    If this is really important data you have there, I wouldn't recommend trying to fix things based on suggestions you get online, as it's always guesswork more or less when you try to fix things remotely. Now it's crucial not to increase the level of damage to the information on the disk.
    It should be inspected by an experienced IT professional.

    you are actually out of options, you have no choice but to format, but you should try the device on another computer before doing so. if its still the same then you will have to go ahead & format. then use a recovery software to recover the data. although i cannot Guarantee you will recover all the data
