Corrupt files on USB Lexar 512 mb flash?

How can I remove corrupt files from a Lexar USB flash drive? I don't care to recover the files but I can not save, delete, or add files to the drive with the corrupt files present. I have even tried to reformat the drive and also tried to delete the partition. Nothing seems to work. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Diskinternals, recommended by D Sherman, is easier to use but costs $70 for the FAT version required for this POS jumpdrive. I used PC Inspector File Recovery http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/file_description/0,fid,23069,00.asp

It's free but is hard to figure out how to use. Read the Help file before using, and be sure to search for LOST FILES as well as LOST DRIVES. It took a while and showed all sorts of duplicate files, but I think I recovered everything, and all the recovered files I've opened (so far) are in good shape.

Refiling them into their original folders is going to be a bear, and diskinternals will do that for you, which might be worth $70 for some people. Also, diskinternals will recover files smaller than 64 kb for free, so if you have only small text files, you may be able to get by without paying $70 for the easier-to-use diskinternals.
