Basically, the formatting process does not clean up your data, only the address. It is still in your memory card, can be recovered as far as you have not yet "overlapped" or "put other data on" it.
There are some good free software, you can search in google or find it here:

Formatted pictures and now they are gone


If the pictures were on a memory card and you haven't done anything with the card since you formatted it, you may have a chance to recover at least some of the pictures. 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 connected to your computer and run the program.

I lost my pics on file on the camera after i hit "format" "yes" help!


If the pictures were on a memory card and you haven't done anything to the card since formatting it, you should be able to recover at least some of the pictures. Do a Google search for "data recovery software" and select a program suitable for your computer and operating system. Put the card into a card reader attached to your computer and run the program.

The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

Its a Sony DCR-SX41 and it is telling me internal memory format error and all my videos ar gone and i can no longer record


I'm sorry that the Camcorder is displaying the error message. The error message indicates that the format of the internal memory is corrupted. It may be due to the deletion of Camcorder's default files from the internal memory. It can happen when connecting to Computer and browse using Windows Movie Maker. To avoid happening this in the future, please transfer videos and pictures using Picture Motion Browser Software. Once you format the internal memory of the Camcorder, you will be able to use it for new recordings. Note: Formatting will delete all data and video stored in the Memory. You can follow the below steps to format the internal Memory.

Formatting memory stick.


You can use the MEMORY FORMAT functions to completely delete all images and options on the Memory Card, including protected images. * The format function restores the Memory Card to its initial state. * The Memory Card supplied with this camcorder has been formatted already. Attention If you execute the MEMORY FORMAT function, all images will be erased completely and erased images cannot be recovered. 1. Set the mode switch to MEMORY CARD. 2. Set the power switch to PLAYER mode. 3. Press the MENU button. 4. Turn the MENU DIAL to highlight MEMORY and press the ENTER button. The sub menu will appear. 5. Select FORMAT from the list and press the ENTER button. 6. "ALL FILES ARE DELETED! FORMAT REALLY?" appears on the screen. 7. Using the MENU DIAL, select the item. NO : To return to previous menu YES : To start formatting. 8. Press the ENTER button. If you selected the YES, COMPLETE! appears on the screen when the MEMORY CARD formatting is finished. 9. To exit the menu, push the MENU button.
