With the help of technology, yes. There is still a way for you to recover it. Download this software, install to your computer and then follow the instructions on how to recover your files.

By the way, until you have not recovered the files, please make sure that you will not use the card and store more photos on it. This is to help you ensure that you would still get the photos you need on the formatted card.

Here is one of the many softwares you can use for data recovery:

Yes, there are ways for you to retrieve your lost photos back from a camera memory card as long as these photos are not overwritten by anything new on it.
What you should do is really simple:
Firstly, stop using this camera memory card immediately in case that any new file would overwrite your original photos and make them gone permanently. So, you should take care!
Secondly, plunge this phone to your computer and prepare to retrieve all your deleted pictures.
Thirdly, apply a photo recovery freeware to retrieve all your lost photos back successfully:

I believe this data recovery freeware can work perfectly on your phone memory card just in the same way as it completely retrieves all the deleted data of my friend off from his phone memory card.
Just give it a shot here: http://www.4cardrecovery.com/
Fourthly, save and back up all the restored photos on a different memory card or drive in case of data recovery failure.
Note: Never forget to back up everything important at least on two memory cards or locations in the future.
Good luck!

What do I need to attach camera to computer to upload photos from Pentax M20 Optio digital onto computer?


A card reader is your best choice.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Recovering deleted photos


Hi,

If these photos were formatted from a memory card and not from the internal memory of the camera, there is a reasonable chance of recovering them.

Please have a look at this FixYa Tip which outlines the possible solutions.

Thanks.

Usually this is not a problem and you will find a menu option to do this. But, in some cameras the solution is to download them the same way as the memory card by plugging in the camera to the computer. Remove the memory card, and then plug in the camera.
