How to recover data from a corrupted micro sd card?

I have a 64gB SanDisk ultra micro SD card. On it I have lots of pictures and videos. When I insert it into my phone it says its corrupted and should be formatted I am wondering is there a way to bypass phone requirement to format and just copy everything and try to salvage whatever can be saved from corruption? Or is there a program I could use?
