How do I recover a flash drive that was not ejected properly?

Is there any way for me to recover files on a flash drive that was not ejected properly?

I had issues with my Mac and wasn't able to eject it. I've tried it on two different computers (my laptop, and my desktop at work), and I get the message that it wasn't ejected properly shows up on both.

Any way for me to recover it?

    Unplug it and shutdown, wait for about 30 seconds, the turn it back on!

    You can try running the disk check on the flash drive and see if it will recover the flash drive

    Download RECUVA and run it on a PC. Then follow directions to get your stuff back.

    (You can try this on a Mac, but I have no direct experience with it: http://www.recuvaformac.com/ )

    It's saved my butt multiple times.
