HTC Phone Reports Memory Card Has RAW Format

"I have a HTC mobile phone which reports memory card has RAW format. Today, my HTC mobile phone was power off all of a sudden when I was listening to music. When I restarted the mobile phone, it said memory card is not formatted. I though that I should move all important data to another place before formatting the memory card, so I connected this memory card to my computer and hope to move all data to the hard drive. However, my PC recognized the memory card as a RAW device when I connected it to computer. I was not able to open the memory card to move any data. Is there any way to recover data from HTC mobile phone memory card that shows file system is RAW on PC?"
