Actually there is at least one package, possibly two, that will download
all internal data to your card, if you insert the card into a Newt w/ a bad
screeen/touchpad. You can then read the card in a second newt.

IIRC there were 2 apps that did this, one was expensive (SBM? perhaps) and
I thought there was a free one also.

But your post has been up for a few hour now, and no one else has mentioned
the names...(I don't recall).

Hope that helps;
