It is possible, depending on how 'corrupt' the drive is, and what caused it.

Care to tell us more?.

As spuds has already asked, it depends on how 'corrupt' the drive is, and what caused it. It may be the usb flash drive or it may be your laptop.

Was it previously working ok with your W8 laptop?

Do other usb devices work ok in the same usb port?

Has someone else/or you used it on another pc?

Does it work ok on a different pc?

Did you pull it out with using 'Safely Remove Hardware'?

Please tell us the history of the usb flash drive from when it was working ok and that will give us some idea of what steps might work to recover it.

The one free one I've had most success with is Pandora Recovery. But, if you've pulled the drive while it was transferring data, it could well be dead.
