Question about Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera
I was playing around with my camera last night trying to get the photo delay shorter and stumbled across the "format" bit on the menu. Not knowing what is is and pressed the button. now all my pictures have gone? can you tell me what the format bit is? and if there is anyway of getting my pictures back?
Formatting erases all information on the memory card, preparing it for further use.
If you haven't done anything else to the card since formatting, you may be able to recover at least some of the photos. Do a Google search for "data recovery software" and select a program for your computer and operating system. Put the card into a card reader attached to your computer and run the program.

The following blog outlines some repair options for a lens error. They won't work for all cases, but they're worth a try if the camera's no longer under warranty:

The answer is it depends on whether or not you conducted a "low level" format or not. Such a format will actually write over the card making photo recovery unlikely. But with Canon cameras, format is normally a quick erase (which is recoverable), UNLESS you manually check the "low level format" box in the menu (did you do that?). But either way, there are numerous freeware software options available for photo recovery that may work for you.
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:

SOURCE: Any internal backup memory??
The internal memory only works when no card is in the camera and then only holds a small number of pics. If you had the memory card in the camera most of the time, most of your pics were on the card.

Many people are unaware that the newer SDHC format cannot be used with most older cameras. Your camera was manufactured well before the SDHC format came out. I'm sorry, but there's no way that a 4GB SDHC card will work with your camera, it just doesn't understand the new format of the card. The max size card that you can use with your camera is a standard 2GB SD card. More info may be found at this link.

You don't give any details about the card that is not working in your camera. I suspect it is not an SD card but an SDHC (high capacity) card. "SD" cards larger than about 1GB are actually SDHC cards. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different electrically. Many cameras won't work with SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.
If this is the case, try a card of 1GB or less. This will hold plenty of pictures, 60 times as many as the 16MB card. If you really need more space then just carry a spare 1GB card and swap when you fill the first one.
