For past three days was working on this problem, Everywhere on the net were able to find Recovery software from SD Card from corrupted disk. Recovery software like ZAR Recovery software, R-delete. The Software were able to detect the SD Card, but were showing the size  of  SD disk “0”bytes or Zero bytes.The data cannot be recovered untill the size visible for which  Filesystem on the disk  need to build and then other required information will be visible.

I found this method which helps to Recover Photos from sd card prompting for format :

  1. Get a Pendrive > 1GB
  2. Download LinuxLive USB Creator
  3. Download from here  Ubunutu OS
  4. Once Download complete, Create USB Bootable Ubunutu OS and boot your computer with USB Drive.
  5. Insert the the  SD Card into SD Slot or  sdcard reader to USB Port.

The Device will get recongize by the ubunutu OS, then click onthe Drive Letter and will be able to View the Photos.
But  to copy files from SD card device, you may need one more USB pendrive to copy the files.

The same method I followed and was able to recover the photos from Sd Card and for Sandisk SD card I/O error
