recover data from flash drive

I have a scandisk that isn't mounting. I believe the data is recoverable. Can anyone recommend software or a company for data recovery? Perhaps something under $50?
Thanks for your feedback.

I have used an app to get photos and files off an iPhone when Apples backup was corrupted. Worked well, think it was closer to $100 though. Looks like they have different apps, they might have what you are looking for. I know it worked for the iPhone and was able to get all the photos off.

Here are some options, of which I used the PhotoRec open-source option successfully.

Having checked a few programs I can see that they're all going to run around $100. So what would be your recommendation for a flash drive, containing my iTunes library, recovery program?

sashmo, the link I posted would take to you the Test Disk download, which includes the free PhotoRec recovery software.

They should have demos. When I had an issue I tried out demos and the one that worked was the one I bought. The demos should let you scan and see what is recoverable, then when you actually want to recover that is where you need to pay.

Cannot comment on CubaMarks suggestion but it is free so can't hurt to try!

Is that the only place that you used and kept your iTunes stuff?? Or was it a backup???

Do you have your iTunes library on any other iDevice or any Mac??

Did you use and iCloud backup???

Obviously from my questions, I am wondering if perhaps you still have a current working iTunes library somewhere else that would save you having to do any recovery.

Or for any other data that might be on it that you need to recover.
