    The one suggestion that I have is finding another flash of the same model. If you insert such a working flash and install the drivers from that, you won't need to install the corrupted ones on your flash which actually has data on it.

    It needs to be recognized by the machine before you can access it in any way. Does it appear in Device Manager?

    It is quite likely that the data is lost.
