You can try this:

Usually the solid state device itself is failing causing this error. Since this is a solid state device, there is nothing to recover in the 'damaged' areas. Either it works or it doesn't. Digital. On or off. They are made to transfer files - not store them. That is why the cost is low.
A copy application will not be able to help as the bad file parts cannot be read.
The USB device is very different than disks, but Windows provides this tool to repair file problems: Right click on the drive letter - select properties - select the tools tab - check now.
Chances are when you run it, the file system is 'repaired' and the existing files are erased or 'fixed'. The problem is that the bad memory is still there, being reported as good. Any data stored in that bad area is corrupted - cannot be retrieved.
I have tried recovering files from damaged solid state devices; can't be done - nothing there. At best you get the parts that are readable before and after the bad section.
The only way a file can be recovered from one of these devices is if the file is erased, the device is in perfect working order, then the erased file -MAY- be recovered. And that is not 100%.
