How to recover smartphone SD Card with Photos, Video and Music taken from a Blackberry

So, you’ve messed up yet again, haven’t you? You forgot the cardinal rule of transferring SD Cards between Blackberry and smartphones: Back up your photos and audio as I’d pointed out in my article How to transfer Phone Contacts and Data from your Blackberry to your Apple iPhone or Google Android smartphone or Tablet. Believe it or not, you CAN’T just take the SD Card out of your Blackberry and insert it into your brand New DL600, DL700 or whatever smartphone and expect it to just “pick them up”, to use the common parlance of the non-techie. Smartphones are programmed to regard all SD Cards as potentially new media to place fresh data i.e. Photos, Video and Music files.
