I encrypted my microsd card in ubuntu (cryptoluks) using fat as the filesystem. Then I plugged the microsd into my android phone. As it did not detect the filesystem.. ( encrypted?) I again inserted the microsd card into the laptop / UBUNTU 11.04

Now whenever i plug in the device , it does not get mounted and gives the error :-

** Unable to mount 32 GB Unrecognized Error mounting: mount: you must specify the filesystem type**

I suppose that the file system is corrupted ... I checked in the Disk Utility and it doesnt show any filesystem.. Only gives me option to format/change the password..

I have valuable data in my memory card that I have to recover .. It doesnt open in windows as well - tells me to format..

Please help!!
