Lost documents

Lost documents

I've just cut a pasted some dropbox documents onto a memory stick and ejected it from my laptop.

 

I've then put the memory stick into another laptop to paste it in and now the usb is staying 'format required'. So basically I've lost the documents I've cut and pasted in there.

 

Is there any chance I can retrieve these?????
