Hello robertthegeordie
welcome to LQ!

Sorry to hear that
But, could you please give more info?
Did it format sdb with a filesystem or is it just black?
and what your linux experience level, have you used Testdisk, Photorec or other recovery tools?

Whatever you do leave it as is until you decide what to do
and hear from others here
