8GB Cruzer stopped working and hot

So the other day I’m working on a spreadsheet out of my cruzer and I notice the red light turn off.  So I go to save my file and the computer doesn’t recognize the drive anymore.  So I save the document elsewhere and shut down the computer.  The cruzer is redhot at this point.  So I let it cool down and try again on a different computer.  This computer does not recognize the device either and after about 30 seconds the cruzer is real hot again.  Have I lost all of my data?  Is there anyway to recover the documents?

Hot is not good. It’s most likely

I’m think of a hardware issue. Have you checked the warranty on this already? 

Mabye it’s ruined .:cry:
