So, short version, sd card in phone isn't being recognized by said phone.
Want to try to recover it so I'm asking for recommendations on readers and programs to try to retrieve the stuff on it before formatting it.
It's a 16GB A-DATA card. Phone is reading other cards as well, just not this one.

Did you throw it in a card reader on a computer to see if you can access the data?

This is about your best option. I'm almost at the verge of doing this with my phone's SD card. It mounts as read only half the time.

I got a card reader from Staples of suspicious quality, so I'm not sure if that's part of the problem.
Thanks for the links SOS.

Also, I'm an ass because I just realized I put this in the wrong forum.
