As long as the xD card was not formatted it is possible to recover the images that were accidently erased,lost or corrupted. You can go to the following website link and download an image recovery software program that is free of charge.
http://www.z-a-recovery.com/
You want to download a program called Zero Assumption Recovery. It is a very simple program to use and many people have had much success in recovering lost images.

Data recovery is a booming industry, and many appropriate services and software can be found by searching regional phone and business directories or the Internet for terms such as "image recovery" or "data recovery".

How to Recover Pictures From Fujifilm FinePix S700 Storage Media


With 7 mega pixel camera, 10x optical zoom, 2.5 LCD, picture stabilization mode, and i-Flash intelligent Flash, the Fujifilm FinePix S700 fulfills all the requirements of any photographer. The storage media (SD and xD memory cards) used in this camera allows the photographer to save audios, videos, and photos of different sizes. Damage in storage media can occur any time, resulting in fatal consequences, like inaccessibility of data saved in the memory card. In most cases, the photographer encounters an error message stating that the card is corrupted. To overcome such corruption scenarios, the photographer needs to restore the data from an updated backup. But all photographers do not create a backup on regular basis. For them, a third-party Camera recovery software acts as a boon and helps them recover the data.
As a real-world instance, you encounter the below error message while trying to view the pictures saved in your SD card (inserted in Fujifilm FinePix S700):
"CARD ERROR"
After the above error message pops up, the data saved in the SD card becomes inaccessible.
Cause:
Few main causes for the above error message are:
1.Incorrect SD card format.
2.Incompatible SD card.
3.Memory card corruption due to unexpected camera shutdown, virus infection, and interrupted read or write operation.
Resolution:
To resolve the above error message and to access the data saved in SD card, you will need to:
1.Use a compatible SD card.
2.In case of memory card corruption, format the card in Fujifilm FinePix S700 camera. Though formatting brings the card in reusable state, all the audio, video, and picture files get deleted. To recover the deleted data, you will need to choose a powerful Camera recovery software.
Such recovery tools use effective scanning methods to ensure complete Camera data recovery. These tools can be downloaded from the Internet and used by anybody. Such applications are safe as they harm the original data saved in the memory card.
Digital camera recovery software is a world-renowned Photo Recovery utility used for recovering data from almost every type of memory card. This software ensures complete recovery of digital files, irrespective of their size or type. Compatible with Windows and Mac OS X, the read only software also recovers data from other storage media, like Zip drives, hard drives, etc.

I don't know what happened but my pictures are gone and I don't know how to get them back! Please help!!?!


Assuming you didn't download the pictures to your computer ... and as part of the download option, you elected to erase/remove the pictures (after downloading them) from the camera ... and you have not done anything (on the camera menu) to "refresh" or erase the pictures, or reformat the storage media (memory card) ...
then ...
... if the pictures are stored in a memory card .... you can take that memory card out of the camera, insert it into your computer ( ... or use a card reader, inserted into a USB port) ... and see if you can recover the "deleted" data from the memory card ...

... if the camera only has "internal" memory ... connect the camera to your computer ... and when it shows up as a storage media, try to recover the "deleted" data from the memory card ...

You can (find on the Internet) and install and use various (free) software (on your computer) to recover "deleted" files on storage media (memory card, etc.), ... on a Windows PC ... like PhotoRec, PC Inspector File Recovery, Undelete Plus (or Undelete 360), Glary Undelete, Wise Data Recovery, Recuva Free.

I Was on the menu item and selected format under tools, lost all my pictures any way to retrieve them?


You pressed format on your camera.That meant that you formatted the memory card of your camera.All your pictures are saved on the memory card of your Canon digital camera automatically.So you can recover pictures from memory card with data recovery software.I have a professional program on my computer that can recover data after deeply scanning your memory card to look for lost data you accidentally deleted or formatted. But you had better have stopped using the memory card of your camera. Because, once the pictures were overwritten by new ones,they are gone for good.By the way,you can download it and scan your memory card for free to preview whether your erased photos can be recovered.Get it from http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/datarecoverystandard.htm

Everytime my daughter takes pictures they don't save,. Everytime she turns the camera off she loses her previous pictures.


First try to recover any images you want to keep with a program like the one you can download here, which is free:-

http://www.easy-flash-recovery.com/

Then try to format the card or memory, either by:-

1.) Format the internal memory or memory card by using the menus in the camera, such as:- Review menu, Setup> Format

or if if that fails and you are using a card:-

2.) Format by inserting the card into the PC or using a card reader.
Then right click on the memory card's icon in the 'My Computer' window to bring up the format option, then format the card again in the camera itself to ensure compatibility.

I accidentally reset my camera and all my pictures and videos have disappeared. Is there anyway I can recover these pictures and videos? Please respond to email address -...


First things first: DO NOT take any more pictures with the memory card that you want to recover pictures from in case you may quite possibly ruin your chances of photo recovery.

Then try this digital photo recovery software (also recover videos and music) to get them recovered. It should recover your files without problem.

How to Do? Just install the program on your computer, then connect your camera memory card and start to scan.

Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to your memory card untill you can retrieve your pictures safely!

Accidental delete of pictures, how to recover


First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.
Download this photo recovery software
http://www.asoftech.com/apr/
Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

Lost pictures?


I'm sorry to say that the card is erased. A format is a complete erase of the memory card. 
However, your pictures aren't necessarily lost. First of all, make sure you don't use the memory card in the camera. As long as you haven't taken any new pictures on the card, you should be able to recover your pictures.
Next, you will need a USB memory card reader that accepts your type of memory card.
Connect the card reader to the PC, then insert the memory card in the memory card reader. Then download this program: http://www.datarescue.com/photorescue/download.htm
This is a program for recovering lost pictures from formatted memory cards. It's a free trial version, that will show you the photos that can be recovered. To do the actual recovery, you will have to buy the program for $29.
I hope this helps you! Let me know if I can provide more help.
Regards,
/Chris

Memory card formatting


Unfortunately, there is no way to format your card without losing any saved pictures. Sometimes, if you insert your card into other cameras or printing kiosks at walgreens or target, it will work. it's a long shot though. Chances are, you may have to lose your saved pictures :(
