Default external SD card question

Hello. I'm quite new to this forum so I may not know where to post. Sorry about that.
So my question is,

I have an old external sd card. It was for my old phone (Sony Ericsson w705). The phone was stolen long ago (I think it was back in 2009). So now, knowing the device is not here, how could I gain the data that I have on that old sd (memory) card?

Of course I did try placing that card into my new smartphone but apparently it requires the latest external sd cards the micro sd cards which are slightly smaller than the old ones. It does not fit in the slot.

Here's a picture of the old (and a new one) sd card;

the upper one is the old card from which I want to get the data(s)


So is it possible -is there any method- to get the data from the old card without having the actual device (sony ericsson w705 or similar to fit the slot)?

You'll have to search for M2 card adapter: http://www.ebay.co.uk/bhp/m2-adapter

Thats not an sd-card, that is an m2-card (memorystick-micro), a special format from/ for sony.
Get an m2-cardreader/ -adapter, if you realy need those files.
