SD card not recognised



I have an SD card in my  XZ1 compact which has been formatted for use with the phone. I had to remove the SIM card the other day so turned the phone off. When I re-inserted the SIM card / SD card holder and booted the phone back up it said the SD card was unsupported and would need to be formatted. Since it has photos and other data on there that haven't been backed up yet I'd like to avoid doing this. 


I've tried re-booting the phone and re-inserting the SD card but I've had no joy. Because it's been formatted to the phone I can't use my computer to check it for errors. Does anyone have any suggestions or solutions?
