Yeah, as I know, the RAW format drive always needs to be re-formatted. However, if you still want to restore your data back. You could try a RAW drive recovery freeware here that has ever restored all the files of my friend from RAW pen drive. I hope it will help you, too.
Afterwards, you should not forget to format this drive. If it is also not accomplished, you may download a format tool to help you: http://download.cnet.com/HP-USB-Disk-Storage-Format-Tool/3000-2094_4-10974082.html
One more thing: You should also get used to copy all your crucial data on different drives for backing up.
