I am sorry about the problem you have.
How are you trying to access the file - through the camera or a stand along SD card reader?
If you are trying to access it using your digital camera and USB cable, it might not work. You can try to use a universal USB reader to read the file on the card.
The readers/adapters are built to be more universal and much more simplified at the same time. Unlike digital cameras, stand along card readers do less error checking, and might give you a chance to read or at least remove the file and format the card.
I cannot guarantee that it will work, but it is definitely worth a try.
Silicon Power SD/MMC Card Reader
Silicon Power Multi-Slot 8-in-1 USB Memory Card Reader

I hope it helps somewhat ....
