recover overwritten files

Specs: Windows XP
I had some AVI files which I had stored on a removable thumb drive which were overwritten by some jpeg files. I tried using the program "Recover My Files," and it seemed to work until I tried opening the AVI file, which did not operate as it should have. Does anyone know of any ways to fully recover overwritten AVI files so that they actually work as they should?

The only hope of recovery would be if the files were only deleted but not yet overwritten. If the files have actually been overwritten there is no recovery possible.

This doesn't make sense. Overwrite occurs only when a file replace a file with the same name and extension.
