Default YHA Linux PC wiped my X1060!

Hi guys

I've posted/read up/researched and nobody has been able to help me with an error with my Sony player. I'm away travelling and really need help to recover my media, esp backed up pictures of Australia.

Upon using a YHA Linux machine in NZ, my X decided to partially format itself and all my music, videos and pictures (5gb of Australia) are no longer accessible. Everytime the unit is disconnected from a PC I get:

The device was not formatted correctly, please re-format via settings.

Obviously I never wanted to format in the first place, but now trying to recover somehow. I was pointed towards active @ partition recovery, but it and others do not recognise USB/flash drives as drives. All hardware such as C, D, DVD drives and memory card readers appear, but not anything connected via USB. What the hell can I do? Not sure if the player or the PC is to blame, but I'm not impressed!! Thought this was the ultimate drag and drop player/external harddrive combo!

Really need some help.
