Question about Canon PowerShot A550 Digital Camera
I took some photo's with my Canon Powershot A550. I viewed the photo's afterwards and even showed some friends. I then turned the camera off, and when I turned it on again, some of the photo's were gone, and photo's that I deleted from the memory card some 3 weeks ago are there. Is there some way that I can try and get those photo's back?

Keep in mind formatting will also totally erase your card, so again only do this AFTER you've recovered the photos.

I believe this data recovery can work perfectly on your camera memory card just in the same way as it completely retrieves all the deleted data of my friend off from his camera.
Note: Next time, you should be more careful about your important data and always back it up timely.
