Recover files from unreadable drive

Is there a way for me to recover files on my SD card that says I need to format it before I can use it?

Have you done a google for data recovery on SD cards? There are some good utilities for recovering data

Ok yea that failed it said there were no files on it.

But I just got a bigger problem.

I just formatted it instead, and whenever i unplug it and put it back in, it says i need to format it again (with all my SD cards)

And i triedwaiting a bit, and this happened now inside the only folder on there

The biggest point of it is, those files are over 2GB, my SD is only 1 GB.....
