Not good. A pen drive is not like a harddrive that you can remove and put in another system to get info from. In effect you did just that and still got the same message. I am afraid there is little if anything you can do now about that. There are recovery specialists out there but they aren't cheap and I am not sure if they even deal with pen drives.

Sorry but you may be out of luck here totally.
