QuickTime can't open AVI files on my corrupted USB flash drive

Recently I dragged some AVI files (recorded by me) from my SD card to my USB flash memory. I did this on a PC. Then, I mounted the flash memory on my Mac and saved the files on my hard disk. But QT couldn't open any .AVI files because the USB drive is corrupted . Does anyone know of a reliable flash drive recovery software for Mac? I really need these files soon...
