If you want to try to recover your data from the card

TestDisk, Data Recovery
TestDisk is powerful free data recovery software! It was primarily designed to help recover lost partitions and/or make non-booting disks bootable again when these symptoms are caused by faulty software, certain types of viruses or human error (such as accidentally deleting a Partition Table). Partition table recovery using TestDisk is really easy.

NOTE If seeked lost file are still missing, give PhotoRec a try. PhotoRec is a signature based file recovery utility and may be able to recover your data where other methods failed.

PhotoRec is file data recovery software designed to recover lost files including video, documents and archives from hard disks, CD-ROMs, and lost pictures (thus the Photo Recovery name) from digital camera memory. PhotoRec ignores the file system and goes after the underlying data, so it will still work even if your media's file system has been severely damaged or reformatted.

How was the micro SD card corrupted, what is the error message when you try to access it? Does it even open up? There are many reasons which may cause SD card to be corrupted, but you may try to recover them with some tools, here's one you may try http://goo.gl/jDP4iL

If the micro SD card is not even detected by computer, you may use a usb card reader, you can get one from ebay or amazon, should be quite cheap, read more about card reader if you do not know what it is

Most of the time, it is causes by virus, so you may scan the micro SD card with a anti virus program, Microsoft Security Essential is free and useful
