To "full-format" a disk-drive (or camera memory-stick) means to write 'zero' values all over every recordable surface, in order to make any "previous" files unreadable. To "quick-format" means to discard the Table-Of-Contents, and replace it by a file that says that all the "pages" in the drive are "available" to be written to.

Search online for software that can "crawl" through those supposedly-blank pages, one-by-one, and "stitch" them back together into "files". Search for "data recovery camera memory", or something like that.

Reset memory card

I think you mean you want to format the card. (wipe all the pictures and make it usable in the camera again)
First be sure your memory card is not locked. The little switch on the side of the card should not in the locked position, because then you can't change any thing. You can't write to or format the card. Only reading the card (viewing the pictures) is possible. You then could format the card in the computer, if you have a card reader. Format with FAT 32.
If you don't have a card reader you can use the menu in the camera.
Page 36 says. Press Menu push the arrow right till you see Format. Then press the up, down buttons, to access the setting and press ok.
After format, choose exit.

The problem is simple in nature but may turn out to be more complex than we like to think of it. Normally the pictures should have been saved to the memory card and furthermore they should still be there. However, in this case, if the camera asks you to format the card, it means that the files or the card itself becomed corrupted and the camera can't recognise any of it's files. In this situation, the camera assumes the card is brand new and unformatted (or corrupted/unreadable) and asks for a format. Most cameras use a file system called FAT16 or FAT32. This is a way to manage the space on a memory device (card in this case) and it's standardized with the computer world meaning if you for example take a picture save it on the card and put the card on your computer via a card-reader, the computer will read it normally. If viceversa you place a picture on the card, the camera will read it fine also. However in your case, if the camera says the card is corrupted or it asks you to format the card, there is a great chance the pictures were corrupted and are now unreadable. You should try to place the card on a computer with a card reader. If the computer says the disk is empty, then a data transmission problem between the camera and the card may have resulted in the corruption of those pictures. Format the card on your computer then place it into your camera and make some pictures to see if this was an isolated incident or still the camera takes pictures but doesn't store them correctly.

For those pictures at least, I think there is a veeery slim chance they are still there somewhere. Practically they are corrupted beyound repair, or even worse, they are simply gone. I'm sorry for telling you the bad news, the only thing i can help with now is to try to diagnosticate if this was an isolated incident or there are chances it ca happen again. Like i've told before, first format the card in your computer, then put it in the camera, then make some test pictures and try to see if you can copy them from the card to the pc. Let me know if something happens or if you need more help.

What is error 9 mean

Error 9 is usually contributed to processing time. The camera is taking to long to process the picture that has just been taken. I would suggest downloading the pictures you have to the computer and then format the memory card in the camera it is being used in. I'm thinking that you have been deleting the pictures and not formatting, here is a diagram of the menu you need and the sets needed to format the memory card.

This will solve the problem

How do you reset the format on a laptop, and change the hard drive

Not sure what you mean by Format, but to change a HDD you turn the lap top on it's screen the undo the screws marked with a picture Harddrive at the bach of the laptop. Normally only one or two screws hold it in place.
Not more than three. Then you pull out the harddrive, do this slowly and when you have time, don't rush. To format a drive use the installation of Microsoft Windows. Format the drive to NTFS, as FAT32 is the older format. NTFS is faster and is standard from Windows XP up to 7.
Please rate my expertise.

What do you mean by formatting mp3 player?in general what does formatting means?

Formating your MP3 player means to remove all songs/pictures/etc from your player.
Just be really careful when you format that you do not delete the files needed to make your MP3 player function.
Also format means the type of music,pictures,video's your player will recognize as in jpg,acc,mp4,etc.

Pictures turns small

Format memory stick by going into menu and memory setup, if memory is formatted without error that means memory seems good. If problem is still there, use another memory stick.

I somehow managed to write protect so I cannot take pictures or transfer pictures to my laptop. How can I undo this? I have an Olympus sp 700 Thanks Durriya

Sounds like you will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Ok button - right arrow to Mode Menu - down arrow to Card tab - right arrow to card setup - right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the write protect message and the card can be used again.
