Recover USB pendrive several partitions (w/ fdisk results)


Hi all and thanks in advance!

I have a Pen drive which has been moving info between PC's and MAC. PC now sees and empty drive, also does the MAC.
I've tried Testdisk & Photorec w/o success.

Is there any way to recover the data?

Thanks

Gorkon
p.s. fdisk -l results are:

Disk /dev/sdc: 1010 MB, 1010827264 bytes
32 heads, 61 sectors/track, 1011 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 1952 * 512 = 999424 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x6b736964

This doesn't look like a partition table
Probably you selected the wrong device.

Partition table entries are not in disk order

I downloaded and installed win32 version and seemed to worked better as it let me recover with photorec from the entire disk

I got lot files with extension *.apple, do you know what are these files?

Thanks again,
