You aren't trying to get the data on it though are you or just make it usable space on the new device. There are few devices that can reformat a protected SD card properly. For the what, $20 a new SD card costs, is it really worth the hassle? If your original device wasn't dead then you would have an easier time clearing it for the new device.

You won't be able to read any data off the card if your phone is broken.
I want my pictures off it lol I don't care if whatever process there is destroys the card afterwards. I think I just have to take it as a loss

^Exactly. Your OP made it sound like you just wanted to reuse it on your new device, not extract data from encrypted storage.
So really, your post title should have been 'How do I break the encryption on WP7 removable storage'. To which the simple answer is, you can't.
OT, this is still one area that the lack of updates for WP7 really ****es me off. There was painfully little thought put into how it backs up the camera roll.
