I have a Blackberry Curve 9220 and inserted a Micro SD card for saving all useful photos, contacts and messages. But, last weekends, when taking some photos with this phone, I was knocked down by a student and this phone also dropped to the ground. I should have been more careful. For worrying about my inner photos, I immediately picked it and tried it again. But, I only got a card error message, even when restarting this phone. So, I took the inner Micro SD card out and put it back multiple times. But, that did not make any difference. And then, I tried it on my computer by plunging the inner Micro SD card only. But, unfortunately, I was still given a windows message saying that this card needed to be formatted. But, these photos cannot be lost. I am completely stuck here. How to repair this corrupted Micro SD card? Most importantly, how can I rescue my photos on this Micro SD card?
