do you have access to an microSD adaptor or a card-reader to move the stuff to a pc before you format

EDIT : or can you connect to your 8330 in mass storage mode and copy it to a pc that way.

the card may be readable by an adapter, you best bet is to find a way to back it up and format it.

I may be damaged, this is unlikely, but possible. Working in IT I always find it takes something like this to "encourage" people to back up their data.
