I have a Micro SD for my Cellphone however. all of a sudden its asking for a FORMAT. Unrecognized Format needed. I connected the cellphone to the Computer ( win7) and it still asks for a format. I have a very important files there so I need help on restoring those.. :(

I would appreciate any help.


Tried TestDisk already. no go. Or maybe I;m using it wrong.

Unrecognized Format

Can you use the cellphone via usb to computer instead of the micro sd inserted on any memory card reader? Formatting this to FAT may resolve your problem.
