The answer is YES if you take care. Do it as follows.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

First things first: DO NOT take any more movies with the hard drive(within your camcorder) that you want to recover movies from. Because if you take any more files or save any data to your hard drive, you may quite possibly ruin your chances of recovery.

Then Connect the HD to your computer as it should appear as a "Removable Drive".

Next, if you are comfortable with using a PC then you can download a data recovery utility that will recover your movies with this software called Wondershare Photo Recovery (I once used this program bounded with some other software) from the following link(the program also recover MOVIES and music files):

Photo Recovery for Windows (if you are running Windows OS)
Photo Recovery for Mac (for Apple Mac OS X)

Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to your cam(hard disk) until you can recover the files safely!

Yes I know, Sony are getting 1000's of complaints about the Hard-Drive cameras and the DVD, the problem is that Windows Vista & Win 7 have no camera drivers, they are working on it honest.

I selected the HDD Format button on error is there anyway to restore my movies that I lost by doing this


To my knowledge no camera hard-drive can be got back that was formated, BUT, yes BUT you can connect the camera as normal to a PC, then go into My Computer from the windows start button, then as well as seeing your PC disks, one will say somthing like camera, highlight that with mouse, right mouse click, and hit restore menu and wait, hope it does it, I have seen this work like magic.
Good luck.

You may try some recovery software to rescue the files on your recorder, here are some for your option.

Photo Video Music Recovery (for Windows)
Photo Video Music Recovery for Mac

Both programs can also recover video and music.

Note: Before your files are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the camcorder in case the original files(your recordings) are overwritten.
