If your card is prompting like that then it is corrupted and only after formatting it you can access the card, and for your data if you want it back then also you have to format it. Go for "Kernel for FAT and NTFS" memory card recovery software which helped me in same situation before.

May be there is a virus in your memory card and after detecting it your pc calls you to scan it immediately.

The problem seems that the data is corrupt. You can still retrieve the data, First you have to download a "Data recovery software" and run it
this will back up the data from your memory card to your computer
then when you backed everything up, format the memory so it will work again. After formatting it you can restore all your data.
