    Hi guys, my Android phone randomly stopped seeing my SD card. so I took it out and plugged it into my blackberry, the BB said it had a fatal error when trying to read the card too. Plugged it into the PC via a card reader and it doesn't even show anything at all.

    Took the sd card out of the blackberry, plugged into the android and it worked, then I plugged that into the card reader and it found it on the computer too.

    so I have basically narrowed it down to the android sd card having shat itself. But is there anyway possible to recover the files off it? the fact that windows doesn't see it as a drive makes me think not but would like to give it a try. I did have a backup form about 3 months ago so its not the end of the world but would be nice to get the files off it if I can.
