SD Card Is Full and Not Accessible

"I have a 4GB SD card which has been used for several years. I didn’t realize that the card is full and I continued to write lots of data to this SD card today. I connected the SD card to my computer and moved some files from hard disk to the SD card. During the data transferring, I received a message to say that SD card is full and cannot move files to it. Then, I stopped transferring files and unplugged the SD card to my computer. Then, I inserted the SD card to my cell phone, but I received another message that says 'F: / is not accessible. Access is denied.' (F is the drive letter of SD card on my computer). I didn’t know what is wrong and reconnected it to my computer, but I received the similar message that SD card is full and not accessible. Can you tell me how to fix the SD card and get back files on it?"
