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.
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:

Everytime i try to take a picture it says card error

Hi, try to format your SD Card on your camera (backup pictures first).
If you can't then try to format on your PC. To format on your pC do the following steps:
1) insert your SD card
2) right click the SD Card Drive (make sure you select the correct one) choosing the wrong
drive would cause BIG problems for you. If you don't know which drive it is Do Not Continue
3) Select Format.

If you PC doesn't format properly or has a problem with the card then you know the problem
is the card and not your camera. Make sure also that the SD Card is not Locked.

How do I delete the memory card

Hi. You can format the memory card from the camera's menu options or by inserting your memory card to a card reader/writer then format the memory card using your computer.

If you are using Windows, open file explorer then "my computer" right-click on the memory card drive then select "format". select FAT32 if not selected then click "OK". That will delete all contents of the memory card.

Let me know if you have more questions. Thanks.

How to format

What you can do is insert your card into a reader then go into windows explorer. Find the drive letter assigned to the new card. Right click on this drive letter and select FORMAT.

These are generic instructions on how to format any drive/card using the Windows interface.

If you're using the memory card in your camera, the best bet is to have the camera format it for you. Usually there's a menu selection that you can follow to the memory card, and one of the selections is to format.

Good luck.
