If you managed to format the sd card BEFORE tranrferring the pictures to the PC, then yes, they are gone I am afraid.

When I turn on my camera it state unable to read memory card and gives you the choice to format. I have used the card and do not want to format it.

This is likely due to the memory card being damaged or it losing a part of data. The only solutions are either to purchase a new memory card, or to save the data from the memory card onto a computer or another location and then format it.

Camera takes too long to load pics,which delays taking more pics

Questions to ask the card almost full of pictures? Is the card "cheap"? Is the card less than a class 4. When was the last time you formatted the card in the camera after downloading the pics from it? How are your batteries?

Sony a100 broken screen

That's not too bad of a problem to live with if you don't end up fixing it. You probably know this already but what you see through the viewfinder is exactly what shows up on the lcd screen after you take a picture.
Have you:

*Tested the camera to see if any of the options and/or buttons work?
*Taken any pictures with it and uploaded them to your computer?

Do you have a user's manual that can help you navigate through the options? If not, feel free to send me a message.

As far as repairing the screen, familiarize yourself with other Sony screens if you can't find anything on the A100. Check out

Good luck!

My sony a100 is plugged in the computer to upload my pictures but

You will find a usb card reader will work much better. Do you have the sony software installed? The ARW files can not be read by any other software except something like Photoshop PS3 or later. I am a pro photographer and the A100 is my favorite camera.
