If the original drive was formatted FAT or FAT32, then the file names are all kept in the file allocation table at the start of the disk... and if this probable reformat has wiped the file allocation table, then the filenames, the directory structure, all that stuff is gone.

If that is what happened, I don't see any way to get anything better than all the files with random filenames.
