You can take the memory card out from camera and then use camera recovery software, recommended asoftech data recovery software as it helped me before.
http://www.asoftech.com/adr/

If above does not work, you may have to format the memory card (use quick format), and then use above mentioned software to scan again the memory card and recover your files.

That's why you should always act carefully about your important data and always timely back it up well. So, I hope you can learn a lesson to make data backups regularly.
But, now, what you should do is really simple:
Step1. Stop using this camera memory card in case that any new file would rewrite your original data.
Step2. Insert this camera memory card to your computer.
Step3. Download a photo recovery freeware to your computer and start to retrieve all your lost data back:
http://sd-card-format-recovery.blogspot.com/2013/11/recover-sd-card-after-formatting.html
In fact, this freeware has ever successfully saved all the inaccessible data of my friend off from his camera memory card. So, I believe it can also work successfully on your card, too.

Step4. Save and back up all the restored data on a different memory card or drive in case of data recovery failure.

Don\'t worry! My friend has ever also
encountered the same problem with his digital camera and lost all his taken pictures.
But after searching a lot of solutions, he has tried a formatted camera data recovery freeware that has finally restored
all his lost photos back:


http://www.formatrecovery.blogspot.com/2013/02/recover-data-after-formatting.html


This freeware has specially offered a "Format
Recovery" mode for its users to process different formatted drive or memory
card data recovery problems. I believe it will also help you out.


Simply download this freeware here:


http://www.freeware-fix.blogspot.com/2013/02/photo-recovery.html


PS: Before the recovery process, you\'d better never stored any new file
on this camera in case of any data loss.


After the data recovery progress, you\'d
better never saved all restored photos on the same camera in case of data
recovery failure.


Just learn a lesson to back up everything important
all the time.

Hi,

Previously I used Photo Recovery software to recover lost photos when I formatted the CF card on my camera. This tool worked with good results. For more details you can visit the below mentioned website.

They are gone. Formatting the card is the same as formatting a PC hard drive. All data is lost.

I know there are programs that recover your eraser files but I'm not so sure if this works with reformated cards, o just with eraser files. You could look for that program. I'll do the same.

I know it is now a month later, but i did the same thing. i was able to recover some of the photos by using a program called "F-recovery for compact flash". it was available on the Internet. it cost between $40 and $5-, but it recovered many (not all) of my photos from a 10 day european vacation.

There must be a different file format saved on your memory card when you put it in your computer. What you do is put it back to your computer, copy those image files to your local drive and delete them from the memory card. OR, you might need to reformat the memory card using your camera menus to recreate the needed folders inside.

How do you erase the SD card from the camera?


You cannot erase the card fromm the camera(You can delete the pic one by one using the delete option though). However you can connect the cam to your PC using the USB cable. The cam will be shown as a drive. Just right-click and click format. As for the flash no, you dont have to hit the flash button for every pic.

Sai.

Internal memory??


Highly recommend that you consider using a card reader to download you pictures. You insert the camera's memory card into the reader, and then insert the reader into a USB port on your computer. The card then shows up as a hard drive so that you can simply copy/paste or drag your picture files onto your computer. Card readers are much more faster in downloading pics, do not require the use of your camera's batteries, and provide much more reliable downloading of the pictures (fewer errors). They're also VERY inexpensive these days. Here are some examples of CF card readers from Amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/s/qid=1223745821/ref=sr_st?keywords=cf+compact+flash+card+reader&rs=172282&page=1&rh=n%3A172282%2Ck%3Acf+compact+flash+card+reader&sort=price

Also, if the card has somehow become corrupted, take no more pics until you've recovered the photos. Take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for:
http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/recovering-those-accidentally-lost.html

You will also need to use a card reader with this software. Finally AFTER you've recovered your photos, recommend formatting the card IN YOUR CAMERA to prevent this from happening again. Note that formatting will totally erase your card. Turn on the camera, press the menu button, select the tools menu. Go down to the selection that states your CF card's memory capacity and select it. Then follow the formatting prompts.

Err CF


TRy and reformat the CF card through the camera. Youll lose the pics for sure but you cant see them anyway. You can also check for bent pins in the CF slot. Sometimes if you shut down the camera in mid write to the card, itll mess up the cards FAT (file directory)

Deleted Pictures


Your formatted pics are still there until you take more pics and overwrite them. Just remember not to take any more pics on that card just yet (sorry I didn't see this post sooner).
It's no problem at all to get them back. As an example, try the below linked freeware program. It's tiny to download (a little over 1meg), and very easy to use. You'll have your pics back in ten minutes after reading this:
