OK! Be relaxed! Nowadays, the formatting process doesn't actually erase all your contained data on a digital camera memory card. The data is still there and only becomes invisible. So, as long as you've not overwritten it with anything new, you do have chances to get it back.
So, insert this digital camera to your computer and download a camera memory card data recovery freeware that can help you easily restore all your lost pictures back for free from this formatted camera memory card:

This professional data recovery freeware has helped many people around me restore their inaccessible data off from a phone/camera memory card or hard drive. It could be a good choice for you to go on.
Next time, you should never be so careless and always remember to back up everything important well.

Formatting won't make the files on a memory card erase permanently.Those erased files are still stored on your memory card, it's just invisible or inaccessible.You can recover them with memory card recovery software. But once the deleted files were overwritten by new data,they are gone for good.
Here I recommend you these software that helped me out:
Mac Photo Recovery Software
Windows Photo Recovery Software

Accidentally switched my sandisk memory to 'lock'


Locking the card simply protects it from writes. It does not wipe out anything that was on it already.

If you're asking about a Memory Stick, there's a switch on the back. Slide it away from the "LOCK" position. If you're asking about an SD card, there's a switch on the side. Slide it toward the metal contacts.

I accidentally formated my memory card and am unsure how to unformat it?? Can anyone help? :)


Husband formatted our 8GB Sandisk Cruzer and I see it as a device in device manager, but I can not use it and can't change it to Fat32 or anything else. I don't want to worsen the situation. He inserted it into a reformatted computer, so it didn't recognize the device, and it asked if he wanted to format it and he chose yes, now it won't even work on our other xp computer. Help, please!

How to delete images off a sandisk extreme 3 2.0gb compact flash%3F


Pop your memory card into your card reader, wait about 15 secs and it will appear on your computer as a drive. Double click on this drive and you will see either a lot of icons corresponding to the photos on the card or a lot of thumbnail pictures of the photos. Again right click on the drive and click on select all on the popup box. When all the icons or thumbnails are highlighted left click on them and the click on delete on the next popup box. Whatever you do DON'T try to format the card with your computer. If you want to format a memory card for a camera always use the camera's format function to do so.

By the way, the photos can also be removed by using the delete function in your camera's menu display.

Make sure the record inhibit tab on the memory crd isn't activated. If it is you won't be able to delete anything.
